Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey is showing off his off-court talents as host of a new podcast for the National Basketball Association and iHeartPodcasts. The new show called Maxey On The Mic is the first player-led podcast from the NBA.
Maxey On The Mic will feature weekly episodes throughout the remainder of the NBA regular season and beyond, with Maxey taking listeners inside his life as an NBA player, and sharing stories and insights from his guests including teammates, family and friends.
“I’m thrilled to tip off my new podcast and can’t wait to tap in with my lineup of amazing guests,” said Maxey in a statement. “I’ve always wanted to do something like this and I’m grateful to the NBA and iHeartMedia for giving me this amazing platform.”
The NBA inked a multiyear deal with iHeart in 2021 to coproduce more than 20 new podcasts. Maxey On The Mic is the first podcast featured on the iHeart/NBA Podcast Network that is hosted by an active NBA player in-season.
Maxey On The Mic will debut March 2. The show will be distributed by iHeartPodcasts and be available everywhere podcasts are heard.
