Former NBA superstar and sports analyst Jalen Rose has made a name for himself both on and off the basketball court. Now, the commentator is unveiling his new multiplatform content program called The Renaissance Man, focusing on his unique perspectives on all things sports, entertainment, entrepreneurship, healthy living, and more in partnership with The New York Post.
“Jalen is an extraordinary talent and we’re very excited to have him join our New York Post family,” said Sean Giancola, CEO and publisher of The New York Post in a press statement. “As an industry veteran and highly regarded influencer, Jalen will bring his experience and perspective on a wide variety of topics to our audience of over 100 million engaged sports, entertainment and style enthusiasts. We are looking forward to delivering entertaining and thoughtful content with his credible and unique voice, and creating engaging integrated opportunities for our advertising partners.”
Rose will also be sharing special anecdotes and lessons he has learned from his NBA career and relate them to current events and themes playing out in the media. The new program will consist of a weekly column inside the publication in addition to a weekly video and podcast series hosted by Rose. He will continue his career with ESPN as a sports analyst and commentator as the new program launches this fall on all major streaming platforms.
“The New York Post is an institution. The Renaissance Man is about celebrating culture, those who create it and advance it, and I am honored to be given this platform to share my insights and speak with people I admire about topics that matter in today’s world,” said Rose in a press statement about the new partnership and program. “I appreciate the team at the Post for showing me love, believing in this concept and helping bring it to life.”
