Front Office Sports reports that NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Chris Carter is starting an eight-part podcast in July with Blue Wire Podcasts called WR1 where he plans to interview the top receivers in football.
“I’ve always gravitated to receivers. I have always talked receivers. And I’ve always mentored receivers,” the 55-year old Carter told FOS in an interview. “If there’s a subject where I feel that no matter who we have on the show, looking at the history of football and looking at the future of football, to me it could only be about receivers.”
The weekly podcast premieres this July before the NFL’s 2021 season kicks off. WynnBet, the sports betting unit of Wynn Resorts, has signed as presenting sponsor, according to Blue Wire CEO Kevin Jones.
He says he would like to interview current NFL stars Antonio Brown, DK Metcalf, and Justin Jefferson, and retired legends like Marvin Harrison.
Kevin Jones is looking forward to the podcast.
“I feel like the TV format has boxed a lot of people into tossing to commercial breaks — or dealing with other loud screamers on set,” Jones said. “This will give Cris the opportunity to go long-form and show off his knowledge, his personality and his passion for the game of football. We’re excited for him to be the solo host — and get deep with these wide receivers.”
