The duo will give picks on upcoming games and chronicle their road trip stops.

Mike Golic and Mike Golic Jr. will team up on DraftKings Network to host a live daily program that will air from 8AM to 10AM starting August 28. They will broadcast primarily from Arizona and California, but will make occasional stops in South Bend, Indiana and in other remote locations.

Jessie Coffield will anchor the weekday morning show from DraftKings’ Boston studio.

The program will include interviews with industry leaders and will cover trending storylines in culture and sports. The father and son duo will discuss trends in fashion and footwear, give picks on upcoming events and document their road trip experiences at local eateries.

Company VP of Content Stacie McCollum commented, “We’re excited to expand GoJo’s presence on DraftKings Network and reunite him with his father, Mike Golic Sr, in a daily morning show airing exclusively in video via DraftKings Network.

"The Golics have been synonymous with morning sports television for more than a decade so adding GoJo and Golic to our lineup instantly creates appointment viewing and listening for our audience.

“Since launching in May, we’ve continued to expand our video offerings and content portfolio to deliver compelling and diverse programming catering to the ‘in on the action fan.’”

Fans can check out the program through DraftKingsNetwork.com, as well as on Samsung TV Plus. A podcast version will also be available on Apple and Spotify.

Mike Golic Jr. said that he is eager to host the show with his father and cultivate a larger DraftKings fan base.

He commented, “Working with my dad in this capacity has always been the best thing I’ve been able to do professionally.

“I’m excited for the opportunity and appreciate the platform DraftKings has provided us in reaching sports fans everywhere.”

Mike Golic Sr. added, “Since joining DraftKings in 2021 I’ve been blessed to work for an established organization that takes a forward-thinking approach to fan engagement.

“Mike and I look forward to not only entertaining our fans with this new show but also meeting them on the platforms where they consume content.”
