Carmelo Anthony has joined the sports podcast circuit with a new digital series alongside The Kid Mero that’s set to premiere December 7.
The retired NBA star has teamed up with former Bodega Boy to host 7PM in Brooklyn, a new digital series and podcast produced by Wave Sports + Entertainment, the same company behind a series of athlete- and sports-driven shows, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter. The show will feature Anthony and Mero offer their takes on basketball, Anthony’s 19-year NBA career, and current happenings in sports and culture.
“7PM in Brooklyn is not just a sports show; it’s an immersive journey that dives into the heart of the game and the rich culture that surrounds it,” Anthony said. “As co-host and executive producer, I’m looking forward to bringing a unique blend of storytelling to fans, merging our passion for sports and culture with our commitment to creating intentional, purpose-driven content.”
Anthony will also serve as executive producer of the show through his Creative 7 Productions, along with co-founder Asani Swann. It will be available every Thursday on YouTube and across streaming platforms.
The show is likely in good hands as Wave Sports + Entertainment is behind a number of popular athlete- and sports-driven shows like New Heights With Jason and Travis Kelce, Podcast P with Paul George, and The Right Time with Bomani Jones as well as a host of digital and social media brands.
“We’re excited to welcome Melo and Mero to the WSE team. Melo’s iconic NBA status and Mero’s groundbreaking entertainment career makes them the most authentic duo to host 7PM in Brooklyn,” Tunde St. Matthew-Daniel, executive vice president, original content, at Wave Sports + Entertainment said. “It’s the best of both worlds and the perfect project to continue WSE’s mission of delivering industry-leading sports and culture shows to all fans.”
It’s also the perfect return for Mero. The former Desus and Mero host has loved sports since childhood.
“Growing up in the Bronx as a die-hard Knicks fan, basketball was everything,” Mero said. “Getting a chance to use my 10-plus years of success in entertainment to cook up some magic with a legend like Melo and my guys at WSE is a no-brainer. 7PM in Brooklyn is gonna be a must-watch for all basketball fans, Merodamus told you!”
