Bleacher Report to Debut NFL Draft & College Football Recruiting Shows
Matt Camp Joins Bleacher Report as Fantasy Football Analyst
Bleacher Report, the leading digital destination for team-specific content and real-time event coverage, will debut a series of new video franchises timed to the start of football season. The site and its top-rated Team Stream app will expand the popular The Simms & Lefkoe Podcast – featuring Bleacher Report NFL analyst Chris Simms and host Adam Lefkoe – to include video for the first time. The podcast, recorded at Bleacher Report’s state-of-the-art production facility in New York, will be available on a weekly basis throughout the season. Additionally, Bleacher Report will introduce new NFL Draft and College Football Recruiting shows produced weekly during the 2015 football season.
The new NFL Draft show will be hosted by Stephen Nelson with Bleacher Report lead NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller and lead college football analyst Michael Felder. The show, debuting in late September, will provide in-depth analysis on NFL Draft prospects, team-by-team perspective including topical debates on prospects, draft position and team needs, year-round Big Board tracking, draft stock evaluations and position-by-position rankings.
Premiering in October, the new College Football recruiting show will be hosted by Nelson with Felder as lead college football analyst. The weekly episodes will include special guests throughout the season, along with exclusive interviews with recruits, highlights, rankings and comprehensive video analysis.
In addition to these new video franchises, Bleacher Report will continue to provide football fans with extensive college football and NFL coverage, including comprehensive fantasy football content. As part of its expanded offerings, Bleacher Report has hired Matt Camp as its lead Fantasy Football video analyst and featured columnist. A 20-year Fantasy Football veteran, Camp previously spent six years with FantasyGuru.com as a senior writer and podcast host. He will continue to host fantasy football programming on Sirius/XM.
Bleacher Report’s video team will create more than 75 new pieces of original content dedicated to the NFL and college football each week throughout the season. Video content includes NFL Team Stream Now, sponsored by Bud Light and Lincoln, Bleacher Report’s signature franchise delivering in-depth real-time coverage of the league at the teams and topics level.
