BARRIE, ON, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Dear Mr. Fantasy baseball podcast has announced a sponsorship partnership with fantasy sports website Dynasty Sports Empire in an effort to provide fantasy baseball content and services across a multi-media platform.
The Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast began in January 2012 featuring radio and television personality Chris McBrien as host of the show. A permanent co-host was introduced in May 2012 with the addition of the 'Fantasy Doctor' and the show features different weekly guests from the fantasy baseball community. The podcast has continued to grow in popularity, culminating in a 2013 Podcast Awards nomination.
The Dynasty Sports Empire provides fantasy players with a platform to manage their dynasty leagues across multiple sports. Unlike some of the major fantasy sports hosting services available, Dynasty Sports Empire also provides a service for collecting and dispensing league fees and payouts making it unique from sites such as Yahoo and ESPN. Dubbed the 'full service' fantasy sports website, Dynasty Sports Empire also offers commissioner services for an immense variety of league formats, dynasty league content, player rankings, prospect information as well as multiple avenues for fans to interact including a Skype community and an interactive forum.
"We're not just podcast hosts on a show about fantasy baseball", states McBrien. "The Fantasy Doctor and I are also avid fantasy players ourselves. The Dynasty Sports Empire provides an excellent service and a forum for fans in regard to the dynasty leagues of the sports they love. It just made sense for us to partner with them to provide an opportunity for our listeners to take advantage of DSE's full suite of services."
With fantasy sports growing in popularity annually, there has been an increasing need for more information and services on the topic. Fantasy sports now account for approximately $4 billion in annual economic impact across the sports industry.
"We are very selective about who we partner with" states Lawrence Marino, CEO of Dynasty Sports Empire. "We are very active in the Fantasy community and on social media as well as devoting time and effort into charitable causes. Chris and the Doctor at the podcast share our values and the partnership was a natural fit. Building and maintaining a friendly Fantasy community is always one of our top priorities. This partnership also allows us to continue providing information and entertaining content to our customers in addition to our current slate of fantasy services".
The DSE website runs year round and focuses on all four major sports. The "Dear Mr. Fantasy" podcast is recorded weekly from February through October and focuses on fantasy baseball. The podcast is available through a wide range of channels including iTunes, Stitcher Radio, the Sports Jam Network and Podomatic, just to name a few.
