Audacy’s BetQL Network Plans Special Professional Football Playoff Content, Will Broadcast Live From BetMGM Sportsbook in Glendale, AZ

PHILADELPHIA, PA – January 13, 2023 – Audacy has announced special programming for the professional football playoffs and upcoming Big Game on BetQL Network, the company’s network of sports betting content heard across its broadcast portfolio and digital platforms.

To get listeners ready for each professional football playoff game, You Better You Bet – the No. 1 sports betting podcast in the U.S. – and hosts Nick Kostos and Ken Barkley will host “BetQL’s Countdown to Kickoff” playoff specials that will offer a blend of both analysis and entertainment. The duo will welcome a rotation of special guests to add expert opinions leading up to that weekend’s slate of games.

“So much betting content is focused on giving bettors picks the day of the game, with many important factors towards making a valuable bet not taken into account,” said Nick Kostos, host, You Better You Bet. “But what we do differently is we start handicapping games on Mondays for the weekend to come, aiming to capture the best number and tracking line movement throughout the week. Ken and I look forward keeping our audience informed for the most critical point of the NFL season, while offering our unique Wagertainment angle to keep them entertained along the way.”

“BetQL’s Countdown to Kickoff” will air on the following dates and times and will be available on BetQL Network, the Audacy and BetQL apps, and air across Audacy’s sports stations nationwide, including WFAN in New York, 670 The Score in Chicago, SportsRadio 94WIP in Philadelphia, The Bet in Washington D.C. and more.
