PHILADELPHIA, PA – October 13, 2022 – Audacy today announced the launch of season two of, “Hey Mayne,” from its sports podcast studio 2400Sports, beginning October 13. Listen to the trailer and follow the series HERE. Mayne’s guests on the premiere episode are sports commentators Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, reunited for the first time in years since their ESPN SportsCenter days.
Hosted by longtime ESPN host Kenny Mayne, “Hey Mayne” delivers a weekly podcast that blends the sports culture with entertainment, politics, music, comedy, and beyond. Each week, Mayne talks to someone he knows a little, and is fascinated by a lot. This show gives Mayne a chance to go much deeper with the people he finds most interesting. Athletes, musicians, writers, and celebrities who he has encountered, who inspire him, and, in some cases, who have become good friends.
Season two guests include recently retired WNBA star Sue Bird, journalist and producer Soledad O’Brien, actress Alison Becker, actor/comedian/producer Jon Glaser, radio host Dan Le Batard, television host Katie Nolan, former UCLA basketball player/social media influencer Josiah Johnson, former NBA player/social media influencer Rex Chapman, and more.
Previous guests on season one include former NBA player Jamal Crawford, sports journalist Jemele Hill, author Sarah Kendzior, sports commentator Chris Berman, screenwriter/director/actor/musician Christopher Guest, actor and actor/comedian Ben Schwartz and many more.
“I’m excited for season two. I haven’t yet exhausted my famous-friends list. Plus, this time to experiment, we branched out a bit to some folks I’d never met. In fact, in one case, my final question was “what is your name?,” said Mayne. “Opening with Dan and Keith is one I think a lot of people will like. They should just cut me out and have them talk. Wait. Maybe they did that. Anyway, yeah, season two – let’s do this.”
Kenny Mayne is an American sports media personality who is best known for his work on ESPN from 1994 to 2021.
