Sal Iacono will host NFL-themed programs on the channel.

FanDuel has continued its ongoing partnership with Spotify’s The Ringer to release more original programming on FanDuel TV. The duo will launch two new shows that feature Sal Iacono, otherwise known as Cousin Sal.

Iacono will appear on both FanDuel TV and FanDuel TV+ on Fridays at 9AM to host “Cousin Sal’s Winning Weekend.” The gambling program will cover upcoming sporting events for NFL football and college games.

The other show, “Ring Wise Guys” will air on Sundays at 11AM, starting on September 10. Iacono, along with the “East Coast Bias” crew hosts John Jastremski, Joe House and Raheem Palmer will discuss football as part of the NFL pregame show.  

FanDuel TV Executive Producer and SVP Kevin Grigsby said, "Ringer content on FanDuel TV has performed exceptionally well since the beginning of our partnership earlier this year.

"We are thrilled to add even more original programming that will resonate with our audience."

The Ringer Gambling Show’s Bill Simmons expressed his excitement regarding the new programming. Simmons will appear as an occasional guest with Iacono.

He commented, "Sal and I have been working closely together since 2002, and it's gone better than just about any Hollywood marriage with the possible exception of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.

"It's going to be great to do even more stuff with him and a wonderful creative partner like FanDuel. I'm so excited that I've finally forgiven Sal for getting me suspended from ESPN in 2014."
