FanDuel’s daily news NBA show, ‘Run It Back’, returns for its second season and has announced former player Lou Williams as one of its newest hosts.
The three time NBA Sixth Man of the Year winner will join other hosts Michelle Beadle, NBA inside reporter Shams Charania and former player Chandler Parsons.
Williams said: “Couldn’t be more excited to start the next chapter of my career off the court and in the studio with such pros like Michelle, Shams and Chandler.
“FanDuel TV offered an incredible opportunity to showcase my deep knowledge of the NBA and I jumped on it. Can’t wait to help make ‘Run It Back’ the biggest and greatest this season.”
Run It Back will air four live episodes each week on FanDuel TV and the sportsbook’s YouTube channel, airing live from Monday to Thursday at 10:00 ET til 8 February.
From 12 February and running until the end of the NBA Finals in June, Run It Back will move to five days a week with the addition of a Friday episode.
“Investing in more episodes of Run It Back this season was purposeful,” revealed Kevin Grigsby, Executive Producer and SVP of FanDuel TV.
“The show saw tremendous growth in its first season and we felt it deserved an expanded weekly lineup in order to reach its potential.”
“We also are bringing the co-hosts to Los Angeles so they can anchor a majority of the shows from FanDuel TV’s new state of the art studio. There is an undeniable team chemistry our audience saw when Michelle, Shams and Chandler were together on set that is hard to replicate remotely.”
Throughout the NBA season, Run It Back will also feature interviews with some of the biggest stars from around the game including regular appearances from NBA legend Vince Carter.
The 2023-24 NBA season commences tonight as the reigning champion Denver Nuggets take on LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers, whilst Kevin Durant returns to San Francisco with the Phoenix Suns to face his former team the Golden State Warriors.
