Omaha Productions Tightens Its ESPN Relationship With New Podcast.

NFL quarterback-turned-media creator Peyton Manning is already working with ESPN as Manning and his brother, Eli, host the “Manningcast” program tied to Monday Night Football each week. Now Manning’s Omaha Productions is building on those ties as it launches a new podcast with Golden State Warriors President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Bob Myers.

The new show is called Lead By Example on which Myers will sit down with leaders from every walk of life – from sports and entrepreneurship to politics and entertainment – to share in their experiences and the lessons they learned in their journey. The Omaha Audio Network podcast will live in the ESPN Podcasts library, which already features more than 35 original shows and is available on all podcast distribution platforms. Omaha will also produce full-length video versions of each podcast for ESPN’s YouTube channel.

“I’ve been fortunate to have been around so many great leaders throughout my career seeing firsthand the many ways they empower and inspire,” said Myers. “Now I’m thrilled to be able to share conversations with some of the top leaders in their professions on my new podcast.”

First season guests will include Walt Disney CEO Robert A. Iger, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Las Vegas Aces Head Coach Becky Hammon, Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski, Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr, Basketball Hall Of Famer Charles Barkley, and WNBA legend Maya Moore Irons, among others.

All proceeds from the podcast will be donated to the Warriors Community Foundation. The Warriors Community Foundation supports education and youth development to promote thriving students, schools, and communities. Myers serves on its board of directors.

Manning launched Omaha Productions in 2016 and Omaha Productions’ expansion into audio was announced jointly with ESPN last June, when the two sides worked together to launch a series of shows with signature hosts including Vince Carter, Cameron Heyward, Rachel DeMita and Katie Mox. Kyle Brandt, Mina Kimes and “Cousin” Sal Iacono’s Mush Media have since also joined The Omaha Audio Network.

The Lead By Example podcast will debut on Tuesday, January 17, featuring a conversation with Warriors superstar Stephen Curry.
