FanDuel TV, the cable television network from leading online gaming company FanDuel announced today that it is launching a new NBA-centric show entitled Run it Back hosted by former ESPN alum Michelle Beadle and former NBA star Chandler Parsons. In addition, the hosts of Run it Back will be joined frequently by Stadium Insider and writer for The Athletic Shams Charania who will bring his insights and breaking news to the show each week.
Run it Back will air Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays at 10:00am ET, starting today and lead into FanDuel TV’s morning talk show Up and Adams hosted by Kay Adams. Run it Back will cover all things NBA with Beadle and Parsons discussing the day’s biggest NBA games, interesting match-ups and most talked about storylines from around the league. Charania will join Beadle and Parsons offering daily contributions and interesting news nuggets only he can deliver. Popular NBA content creator Eddie Gonzalez (@bansky) will serve as the show’s producer and an on-air contributor as well.
“FanDuel TV was designed for viewers to watch and wager and Run it Back will bring a 360° view of the NBA including wagering trends to our audience,” said FanDuel’s Chief Commercial Officer Mike Raffensperger. “Every NBA season offers its own unique intrigue and as the narrative of each season unfolds Run it Back will be there every step of the way.”
In addition to making regular appearances on Run it Back, Charania will partner with FanDuel and use FanDuel Sportsbook odds exclusively in his news reporting on social media. This is a first of its kind integration where one of the NBA’s leading journalists will source news from an official NBA sportsbook partner in his tweets and content. In keeping with its commitment to safer gambling and sports integrity, FanDuel and Charania agreed that he will be prohibited from signing up for FanDuel daily fantasy sports (DFS) and sportsbook account.
Run it Back is just the latest exciting addition to the basketball lineup on the network. FanDuel TV’s commitment to basketball goes beyond the new show, to include game coverage of Australia’s National Basketball League (NBL). As part of a licensing agreement with Sportradar, FanDuel TV and FanDuel+ are the home for international basketball with NBL leading the charge. Two to three games each week will be televised live on FanDuel TV, primarily on Friday and Saturday nights during the season. Dozens of more games are available on FanDuel+, which you can download on Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV connected devices.
