The Brooklyn Nets and iHeartMedia have announced a podcast partnership. The first two shows will be hosted by Chris Carrino, the Nets’ radio play-by-play announcer, and Ally Love, the team’s in-arena host. Additionally, the Nets will publish limited-run narrative podcasts.
The first show, “Voice of the Nets with Chris Carrino,” debuts today and release new episodes on Tuesdays. Each week, Carrino will speak with sports industry experts and personalities rounding up news on the current state of the Nets and the NBA, as well as discuss off-the-court stories related to the team. The first episode features an interview with former Nets player Jason Collins, who helped lead the team to back-to-back NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003, and later broke barriers as the NBA’s first active openly gay player.

“For over two decades I’ve been telling the story of the Nets through radio play-by-play and Voice of the Nets podcast is a chance to tell that story in long form,” Carrino said. “I’m looking forward to sharing these stories and insights in conversations with a variety of guests. In addition to my role with the Nets, I have a somewhat unique life experience and a natural curiosity and while the show will revolve around the team, we will cast a wide net in covering a myriad of topics. I’m so excited to connect with fans in this way and grow a new audience as well.”
A second podcast, “Courtside Conversation with Ally Love” presented by SeatGeek, will premiere in June, and will be hosted by Love, who in addition to her role with the Nets, is CEO of Love Squad, a Peloton instructor and inspirational speaker. In this series, Love will participate in conversations with a rotating group of influential and notable guests discussing both the game of basketball and all things culture – whether fashion, music, food, art, or current events – highlighting important moments in New York.
“Courtside Conversation is going to be the place for all our guests to get personal, get inspired, and be inspiring,” Love said. “I regularly say that conversation is the catalyst for change and I’m looking forward to connecting with athletes, artists, and all our favorite people on a platform where we can share strategies and tips for success - our winning game - with others.”
