The Ringer family is getting just a tad bit bigger. Bill Simmons and company recently announced that Wosny “Big Wos” Lambre will be joining the popular sport-culture hub. Lambre joins outlet after a successful run at The Athletic and Count The Dings. In this role, he will contribute to various Spotify-backed podcasts and write about the NBA and other relevant topics. As for his role with Count The Dings, he will remain the host of their politics podcast, Woke Bros. However, he will be taking a step away from their most popular show, BOMM.
The Spotify-supported brand did not stop at adding Wosny Lambre. Shea Serrano and Brandon “Jinx” Jenkins will also be joining The Ringer Podcast Network as hosts of the new podcast, No Skips. The two Hip-Hop historians will re-examine mixtapes and albums that have stood the test of time and added to pop culture in a positive…or negative way Jenkins and Serrano launched their new show on Thursday with an episode that explored the impact of 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’.
No Skips and Lambre are the two newest additions to The Ringer after the company saw a number of key players leave in recent weeks. Tyler Tynes left to become GQ‘s first-ever full-time sportswriter. Jason Concepcion moved away from the company to join Crooked Media. Also, Haley O’Shaughnessy earned a position at the growing Blue Wire Podcast Network. These departures are coupled with the recent additions of Van Lathan, Rachel Lindsay and Danyel Smith.
The cat is out the bag. This is my last week with The Athletic, the best job I have ever had.
Starting my new job @ringer SOON!
