ESPN columnist and on-air personality Clinton Yates is set to host a new bi-weekly podcast series called Black History Always. Produced by Roj Grobes, the series seeks to “further highlight Black stories beyond the traditional Black History Month in February.”
“With Black History Always [podcast], we’re looking to remind people that who we are as a culture is a living, breathing entity in all parts of American society,” Yates said about his new endeavor.
“It’s not just history books and social media. The humans who make up the fabric and backbone of this country aren’t all superstars or slaves. We contain multitudes and everyone deserves to be heard. So tune in.”
This is the latest evolution of Yates’ ESPN career. Since departing The Washington Post for the worldwide leader in sports, he has emerged as one of the network’s leading voices while covering baseball and appearing on shows like Around The Horn. Meanwhile, Grobes has had a more front-facing role in recent months as the lead producer on The Max Kellerman Show. The two talented storytellers will come together on July 28 for their debut show.
