VSiN is adding another prominent sports figure in the face of Shaun King, a former NFL quarterback and sports analyst, who will now join The Night Cap’s team.
Shaun King Brings His Experience to VSiN
Sports betting network VSiN is giving itself another awareness boost by signing former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and Super Bowl XXXVII winner Shaun King. VSiN has tapped King as the new co-host for The Night Cap shows the network broadcasts.
He will be joining fellow co-host Tim Murray to offer his insight on various sports betting markets and developments across the country. The show will continue for three hours and be slotted in the 10 pm to 1 am ET time window.
Shaun is a huge talent that will add to the coverage expertise as his name will ring familiar with football fans that would be keen to hear his insights. The boundaries between sports gambling and sports are thinning, with many sportsbooks now bringing more former sports personalities that resonate with the fandom.
VSiN founder and CEO Brian Musburger noted that his addition would directly impact the company’s visibility, explaining, “Shaun is an incredible talent, and we’re thrilled to add his unique perspective as a player to our sports betting content as we continue to expand VSiN’s programming and reach.”
A Well-Seasoned Sports and Betting Analyst
King is an important name in the sports sector, not just because of his NFL experience, but also as his stints with ESPN and NBC Sports. At both, he worked as an analyst, helping provide a lot of value for fans tuning in.
King quickly exchanged a career in professional football with one in sports media. He spent several years at ESPN between 2007 and 2010, where he worked on both NFL and NCAA football coverage and was part of the NFL Live, ESPNews and First Take coverage.
King’s subsequent analyst included several big networks, including NBC Sports Network, Yahoo! Sports, Fox Sports Net, and Versus. He has been pretty passionate about his former team but has given every NFL franchise a fair consideration, leading to building up his profile as an insightful and knowledgeable commentator.
In King’s own words, his passion has always been connecting with and informing sports fans, and no one does that better than VSiN when it comes to sports betting. “I’m so excited to join a team on the forefront of what’s happening in sports betting and use this impressive platform to help give fans the news and insights they need to decide when to have a little skin in the game and when to stick to just a rooting interest in the teams they love,” he added.
VSiN has been making strides towards bolstering its available sports betting coverage, bringing more worthwhile opportunities to sports fans and those who are new to the industry. VSiN has also been posting tips and predictions for America’s biggest sports leagues, including the NFL, NCAA, NBA, MLB, PGA, NHL and many more.
The company has also been making conscious choices to consolidate its standing in the sports betting sector. It has teamed up with iHeartMedia to bring unique coverage in the form of podcasts.
VSiN sought out closer ties with BetMGM, one of the top three sports gambling companies in the US by market share. The inclusion of King is an important step forward for the company.
