"Club Shay Shay" represents 'Excellence in Engagement' in various ways - but most notably is the shows ability to maximize content produced around individual episodes. Each week, clips are distributed across 'Club Shay Shay' social media platforms that keep the conversation going in a fresh and timely manner. With each episode ranging from 60 to 90 minutes in length, the ability to create standalone content ensures maximum visibility throughout the week and drives headlines and downloads as a result. Nobody does it better than the 'Club Shay Shay' team.
Other podcast shows in the industry may have their own set programming but TTW goes the extra mile to listen and incorporate the thoughts of those who have the greatest impact on the show’s success—the fans.
Since its inception, the mission of FOX Sports’ award-winning “Club Shay Shay” podcast hosted by three-time Super Bowl Champion Shannon Sharpe has been simple: give today’s luminaries a place to talk openly about triumphs and failures on their rise to prominence, offering inspiration to listeners.
Strategy & Execution
Sharpe, affectionately known as ‘Unc’ to his ever-growing legion of supporters, brings forward each interview for “Club Shay Shay” with his own unique style and one clear thread – no topic is off the table.
“Club Shay Shay” is a multi-media podcast, available in audio and video formats on various platforms including Apple, Spotify, YouTube, Twitter and the FOX Sports app. New episodes are released as audio-only on Monday mornings, and video is published the following day. This rollout strategy was devised to tap into two different audiences, thereby maximizing the podcast’s reach.
Each week, the Pro Football Hall of Famer and co-host of Undisputed on FS1 sits down with athletes, celebrities and influencers to break down, analyze and discuss the latest headlines in sports, pop culture and everything in-between. With a quick wit, the former tight end for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens moves easily between the worlds of sports and entertainment with his finger on the pulse of the cultural zeitgeist with a sharp fashion sense. A gifted interviewer, the podcast’s longform format allows Sharpe the opportunity to have genuine, meaningful and revealing conversations.
