‘SportsCenter' Anchor Hannah Storm Gets Personal In Her New NBA Podcast.

Just in time for the NBA playoffs, and the National Basketball Association is expanding its roster of podcasts. Under its multi-year podcast partnership with iHeartPodcasts, the league is debuting a show hosted by ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor Hannah Storm. The series titled NBA DNA with Hannah Storm will have a personal touch as Storm delves into her life and drawing stories from her earliest days as a fan, when her father was commissioner of the ABA — the league that later merged with the NBA — and she witnessed the Pacers’ logo getting designed on her kitchen table to her historic career as a pioneer in the field of sports broadcasting for women.

The show will feature Storm speaking with current NBA superstars and basketball media personalities. It will feature interviews, archive audio and first-person narrative that will interweave her personal story with the history of modern professional basketball. Guests will include Dr. J (Julius Erving), Charles Barkley, Rex Chapman, Dell Curry, Bob Costas, Peter Vecsey, Sheryl Swoopes, Doris Burke, Ralph Sampson, Robert Horry, Muggsy Bogues, P.J. Carlesimo, Larry Brown, Rebecca Lobo and Rudy Tomjanovich.

“I have long dreamed of doing a project chronicling my unique lifelong journey through professional basketball, from the ABA to the NBA and WNBA,” Storm said in a statement. “I am so excited to share the stories along the way with the people who are an integral part of my NBA DNA.”

Meantime, eight-time NBA All-Star Vince Carter is rolling out a second season of his podcast The VC Show with Vince Carter. The show features Carter sharing behind-the-scenes stories from his life and 22-year career in the league with the biggest names in sports and entertainment. In the season two debut, Carter talks with former UNC Tar Heel teammate and NBA great Antawn Jamison.

“I am so excited that season two is finally here thanks to iHeart and the NBA Podcast Network,” said Carter. “This season we have a new theme song and a new look, but still the same good conversation.”

The NBA announced in July 2021 that it had signed a multiyear partnership with iHeartMedia that would see them co-produce at least 20 new series. NBA DNA and The VC Show add to iHeartMedia’s existing shows in partnership with the NBA, including NBA FlashbackMaxey on the MicNBA Pulse with Sarah KustokNBA Finals FileFour Years of Heatand Miles and Jack Got Mad Boosties among others.
