Westwood One, America’s largest audio network, and Bonnie-Jill Laflin, the NBA’s first and only female scout, are announcing a new podcast called The Weekly Pass. Upcoming episodes of this engaging, original weekly sports podcast feature interviews with sports superstars Lenny Wilkens, Roger Clemons, Shaquille O’Neil, Jerry Rice, and Curt Schilling.
Every Wednesday Bonnie-Jill and co-host Adam Copeland, one of the Top 30 Sportscasters Under 30, share interviews with prominent athletes and celebrities discussing sports news and action with an insider’s perspective.
Bonnie-Jill Laflin said, “I’m excited to join the Westwood One team and have this platform where my career in sports and entertainment intersects with athletes and celebrities, many of whom I’m fortunate enough to call friends.”
Bonnie-Jill has a number of firsts in her career. In addition to her role with the NBA, Bonnie-Jill was the first to cheer on a professional level for three teams in two sports, and is the first female to be awarded six championship rings. Laflin can be heard as a sports reporter on national platforms across the globe.
“There is no doubt that Bonnie-Jill is an empowering pioneer for women in sports,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Marketing for CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “Her access, credibility, authentic relationships with her guests, and chemistry with Adam make The Weekly Pass a winner.”
Both Laflin and Copeland can also be heard weekdays on CUMULUS MEDIA’s KNBR in San Francisco, one of America’s top-rated sports radio stations.
