Dan Le Batard Parodies Colin Cowherd’s Hype Video

“Le Batard took the opportunity to hype his own network by poking fun at his former colleague.”

Wednesday was undeniably a good day for Colin Cowherd and his podcast network, The Volume. That’s why the FOX Sports Radio host took to Twitter to post a video celebrating his newest talent acquisition, Liv Moods, and tout big expectations for the network’s future.

The video is goofy and over the top, with Cowherd’s performative laugh as he half-heartedly puffs on a cigar, but the content of this particular video isn’t what matters. Colin Cowherd wants listeners and potential listeners to pay attention to what is on the horizon for The Volume.

One potential listener that was paying attention was Dan Le Batard. The former ESPN personality is now in the digital content space himself with Meadowlark Media. That company is also growing and adding talent.

Le Batard took the opportunity to hype his own network by poking fun at his former colleague.

Are there really major announcements coming from Meadowlark or could Le Batard simply not resist the opportunity to throw a little shade? Remember, this is the same guy that used to have celebrities pick games in the NFL each week in an effort to prove Colin Cowherd’s NFL picks were not special in any way.

If both digital companies are continuing their growth, that can only be good news for content creators. With iHeartMedia and DraftKings behind The Volume and Meadowlark Media respectively, there is no shortage of cash to go around. That means growth can never be ruled out.

One possibility, albeit unlikely, is that there is a very real reason that the two videos look similar. Could it be possible that some sort of merger or collaboration between The Volume and Meadowlark is looming? Dan Le Batard has said before that he and Colin Cowherd have a good relationship. It would certainly be a high profile move that could also be a nice middle finger to their former employer.

Amazon Prime Video is the first to tout its NFL success in Week 4 of the season. The week’s first game, the Thursday Night Football matchup between the Miami-Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals, averaged 11.7 million viewers.

That figure represents growth from last week’s Steeler-Browns game which averaged 11.03 million viewers. That number also represents a massive increase over last year’s Week 3 game from last year (Jaguars-Bengals) which averaged 8 million viewers. That game aired on the NFL Network.

Amazon also noted that the streaming service gathered 13.4 million viewers across all platforms for the Thursday night game.

Julian Edelman Considers Himself A Pioneer

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that.”

Since his playing days with the New England Patriots ended after the 2020 season, Julian Edelman has kept himself busy with his role on Inside the NFL and now co-hosting the Games with Names podcast with comedian Sam Morril. So, what was Edelman looking for with his post-football endeavors?

Edelman was a guest on the most-recent episode of the Half-Forgotten History podcast with Trey Wingo and he said that the vibe that Inside The NFL has with Phil Simms, James Brown, Brandon Marshall, Michael Irvin, and Ray Lewis was something that he was looking for.

“With Inside the NFL, I have those guys and there’s a camaraderie. We get to have that breaking bread and just locker room kind of vibe. On the podcast, it’s the same thing.”

The MVP of Super Bowl XLIII mentioned that the key to doing the things he does now in his post-career came from the way him and his team were able to use social media to build his own brand and help ease the transition from a playing career to a member of the media.

“When I retired, I was fortunate enough to put a good team around me for all of my off-the-field things. We built a brand through social media. Kind of pioneers of this whole thing with social and e-commerce and millennial/Gen-Z things. It helped me land a role on Inside the NFL and go and have an ability to start a podcast, Games With Names. It’s been good and it honestly helps with the transition.”

Now that Edelman’s playing days are in the past, he said that he now has the opportunity to do things that he was always interested in since he was a kid, but did not have the time for and he is grateful for the opportunities that the NFL has allowed him to have.

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that. I am so grateful for football and for the game just because it has given me the opportunity to do things that are fun and amazing.”
