KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Holladay Distillery lines up another big hometown partnership with KC Sports Network (KCSN) and is thrilled to announce the «KCSN Kickoff 2021» official launch party at the distillery on July 31, 2021.
KCSN debuted earlier this year as a new take on regional sports media coverage. In May, the network made a grand entrance into the podcast landscape, indexing on iTunes in the top 10 football podcasts and top 50 for all sports, and also peaking in the top 10 in sports on Spotify.
With an initial focus exclusively on the Chiefs, the network offers daily newsletters and podcasts featuring a unique blend of perspectives from former players (Jeff Allen, Mike DeVito, and Nick Leckey) and the top local writers and analysts in the game. KCSN’s goal of keeping Chiefs Kingdom entertained and informed with genuine, quality information and discussion has been received with open arms by local sports fans, with more than 20,000 followers gained across the network’s platforms since their launch in May.
Holladay Distillery is one of the first 10 partners to come on board with this exciting new player in local sports media. The company’s brand, 360 Vodka, is «The Official Vodka of the Kansas City Chiefs» and has been a proud partner of the team over the last two seasons, making the partnership with KCSN a natural fit. In addition to hosting «KCSN Kickoff 2021,» the distillery will also help launch the network’s college programming as the title sponsor of multiple shows (TBA at a later date), which will focus on KU, Mizzou, and K-State, and feature former athletes from each school. Holladay Distillery will also serve as the title sponsor of the new «KCSN Weekly» wrap-up show, which will feature a brand new podcast studio – courtesy of KCSN’s partner, Let it Fly Media. The Holladay partnership is also expected to include exclusive on-location events, tailgate parties, and various promotional giveaways.
«We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Holladay Distillery as they help us launch KC Sports Network into the college space,» said BJ Kissel, the creator of KC Sports Network and the Director of Athlete Content at Let it Fly Media. «While media landscapes and the connection fans have with their teams and athletes is constantly evolving at every level, we’re looking forward to working hand-in-hand with a Holladay Distillery crew that shares many of the same values and commitments to their consumers and community as we do.»
