On Tuesday morning, WynnBET announced details of a new Blue Wire podcasting studio coming to Wynn Las Vegas.
The project is currently under construction and operations are slated to begin in August ahead of the 2021 NFL season, according to a press release sent out by WynnBET and Blue Wire.
The state-of-the-art space, adjacent to the casino floor inside the Wynn, will span 1,700 square feet and feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls so fans and resort patrons can view the recordings . The space will be used year-round to create sports-related audio, video and social content from Blue Wire’s network of more than 175 podcasts, the statement said.
“The production and distribution of engaging content ‘only at Wynn’ is an important part of our strategy to build the WynnBET brand,” said Craig Billings, president of Wynn Interactive. “Our partnership with Blue Wire will create unique storytelling-based sports content, much of which will be produced at Wynn Las Vegas. The on-site studio will boost our physical bookmaker and promote the WynnBET experience ”
Blue Wire’s podcasting talent roster is also growing alongside its new space. Chris Long will continue his hugely popular podcast, Green light with Chris Long, which will now be produced and licensed exclusively by Blue Wire and Cris Carter will host a new podcast under the Blue Wire umbrella called WR1 where he will interview the best receivers in football.
WynnBET will serve as the title sponsor for both programs.
The release also notes that “Haley O’Shaughnessy, co-host of the basketball lifestyle podcast Single girls alongside Jordan Ligons, will also maintain a significant presence at the studio to deliver his unique take on the current events of the week and provide in-depth reporting on topics that present the other side of basketball.
“This partnership gives Blue Wire a national stage within Wynn Las Vegas to compete with top sports and entertainment publishers,” said Kevin Jones, CEO of Blue Wire. “We will continue to work with emerging talent and create original content from the ground up at the resort, becoming an activation hub for events such as the NBA Summer League, the 2022 NFL Draft and beyond. We can’t wait to start welcoming creators, partners and fans in August.
