Popular personalities Mark Titus and Tate Frazier join FOX Sports and CUMULUS MEDIA’s Westwood One, as co-hosts of the new “Titus and Tate” podcast. “Titus and Tate” is available in visual formats on FOXSports.com, the FOX Sports app and social media platforms. The audio version from Westwood One, America’s largest audio network, will be available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, or wherever you get your podcasts. The first and second episodes are available now, just as the college basketball season heats up for the duo, set to discuss all things sports and pop culture.
“Lesser men would have been turned off by FOX Sports executives playing ‘Roundball Rock’ on a loop for an hour during our initial meeting, but that’s when I knew FOX Sports was where I belonged,” said Titus. “Westwood One has been a titan in audio distribution for as long as I can remember, and being associated with such an iconic brand is nothing short of an honor. I’m excited to make podcast magic together.”
“Westwood One is one of the elite podcast platforms out and as a podcast producer myself, I have admired their network construction from afar. I am thrilled to work with them on growing Titus & Tate and taking our show to the next level together,” added Frazier. “In addition, FOX Sports was the first company to hire me back in 2014, and I am beyond excited about the opportunity to return and re-join the family. We’re both pumped about the potential of the show and the places we’ll take it during this new era.”
Westwood One is the exclusive audio distribution and ad sales representation partner of the “Titus & Tate” podcast. Titus’ relationship with FOX Sports extends to content contribution opportunities beyond the podcast and digital platforms.
“As a former bench-rider myself, I’ve been a fan of Titus going back to his ‘Club Trillion’ days, and he’s since found Tate, who shares a passion for the game and sense of humor that sets them apart,” said Michael Bucklin, VP of Digital Content, FOX Sports. “Empowering leading personalities to serve fans is core to our vision here at FOX Sports, and these two fit right into that strategy.”
“Titus and Tate’s fans are thrilled to have this hilarious and unstoppable team back behind the mic – and not a moment too soon as college hoops head towards the brackets and buzzer-beaters of NCAA March Madness 2020,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Marketing, CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “We’re ready to turn up the heat and give national marketing and promotion of this show a full-court press.”
