Audacy has announced the content lead for their new 2400Sports podcast studio. Barstool Sports Section 10 podcast host Steve Perrault is moving over to Audacy to take on the challenge.
Perrault is overseeing all MLB podcasts created at the studio in conjunction with MLB itself. Audacy signed a content deal with the league, and in addition to those shows, Perrault is also co-hosting a new Boston Red Sox podcast housed at the studio following the success of Section 10.
“As we continue expanding our new 2400Sports podcast studio and embark on our new expansive podcast partnership with Major League Baseball, we’re thrilled about adding Steve to our team to launch a new show centered around the Boston Red Sox,” Audacy Chief Digital Officer J.D. Crowley said in a press release. “This podcast, which will be intensely focused on fan engagement and fan-created content, will lend a unique perspective to everything Red Sox, and we believe Steve truly encompasses the dynamic of the show.”
Perrault is also contributing more time to WEEI in Boston. He is now an on-air contributor at the Red Sox’s flagship station while continuing his duties as co-host of the Live BP Baseball Show on the station.
“I’m beyond excited for this new opportunity with Audacy and 2400Sports,” said Perrault. “We have the potential to make this something really special, and I can’t wait to be a leading force with that. Baseball over everything. Let’s go.”
Perrault rose to fame as a co-host of Section 10, a Barstool Sports Red Sox podcast. He has co-hosted the show over the past seven seasons and is also a contributor to Bleacher Report dating back to 2015.
MLB named Audacy their official podcast partner back in June and has begun integrating BetQL content into their platforms ever since. Perrault is the man tasked with bringing their third podcast studio, 2400Sports, to the top.
