NEW YORK, July 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Compass Media and Hiltzik Creative today announced the launch of "In the Loop", a one-hour podcast hosted by Alex, Chris and Zach Lupica, premiering today July 15 on iTunes. The three sons of NY Daily News columnist Mike Lupica and his wife Taylor talk sports, pop-culture and entertainment, the way only brothers raised in a sports crazed family can. It's the conversation happening in sports bars across the country with three guys who have seen it all first hand.
"I have been listening to my three sons talk about sports in such a funny, knowing way since they all first started following sports," said proud father Mike Lupica. "Now you get to listen in. 'In the Loop' is exactly what young guys talking about sports is supposed to sound like. It's the Lupica boys who constantly remind me that the good old days are now."
Segments of the podcast include:
- Sauna – A place for "hot takes" where the Lupica brothers riff about a sports or pop culture figure.
- The Lupicas Look Back – The boys re-watch and react to a classic sports video and commentate and include video links with the podcast so viewers can watch along with them and re-experience an event from the past in real time.
- Straight to Voicemail – The brothers take calls from viewers and react to pre-selected calls.
- Lupica Locks – A quasi-gambling segment during which time the hosts discuss upcoming games and let listeners know who they will be betting on over the weekend.
In the Loop is the next joint venture podcast between Compass Media Networks and Hiltzik Creative, the content arm of Hiltzik Strategies, which also produce "The Mike Lupica Podcast".
