The strategic alliance marries FNTSY’s original content that provides fans with real-time daily fantasy sports coverage and expert commentary with Premiere’s world-class sponsorship and advertising sales team. FNTSY is owned by SportsGrid, which works exclusively with the Elvis Duran Group on programming, sales, marketing and distribution.

President of Premiere Networks Julie Talbott comments, “We’re delighted to partner with EDG and SportsGrid to represent FNTSY Sports Radio Network. With fantasy sports and betting becoming more and more mainstream, this partnership allows us to connect our advertisers with this growing industry and its passionate consumer base. We look forward to great success together.”

EDG Partner/CEO David Katz comments, “This partnership propels us further into the multi-billion-dollar industry of fantasy sports, priming us to take full advantage of the medium’s meteoric growth, particularly since the recent legalization of sports wagering. With industry leader Premiere Networks by our side, there’s no stopping us.”

SportsGrid President Louis Maione says, “Our partnership with two of the leading brands in radio will further accelerate the audience and revenue growth of the FNTSY Sports Radio Network. As one of the leaders in fantasy sports streaming and podcasting, we are thrilled to collaborate with Premiere to drive revenue, create strategic plans, and develop sponsorship relationships.” 

Since partnering with FNTSY Sports Network, EDG has assembled stellar broadcast teams to report live from such events as the National Fantasy Baseball Championships (NFBC) and has launched new programming such as the daily show, Fantasy Sports Today, hosted by the esteemed fantasy sports talker Craig Mish and sports analyst and author of the number-one-selling Fantasy Black Book series Joe Pisapia.
