Pat McAfee, who played in two Pro Bowls during his eight-year NFL career, brings a fresh take on sports and entertainment to listeners and fans. He is known for speaking his mind and is both relatable and refreshing. His player’s insight, electric storytelling, and robust sense of humor have helped him build a huge and loyal fan base with more than two million social media followers. During his playing days in the NFL, McAfee was a frequent guest and fan favorite on the Westwood One-syndicated Bob & Tom Show. Earlier this year, McAfee launched his own stand-up comedy tour, playing to sold out crowds at every venue.

After retiring from the NFL in 2016, he joined Barstool Sports and developed their “Heartland” division and the Heartland podcast, which will also be moving to the Westwood One Podcast Network. Pat also works for the WWE as a co-host on several of their NXT TakeOver Events.
