Sports are a big deal in South Florida and whether you are a Miami Heat, Miami Hurricanes, Miami Dolphins, Panthers or Marlins fan you probably can’t get enough sports. Talk radio like 790 the Ticket and 560 WQAM has been around covering our area forever, BUT there is a new face offering a refreshing take on sports in South Florida and that is the New Miami Podcast.
We discovered the New Miami Pod a back in April and thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. These two locals are passionate sports fans who talk about local teams, their favorite hangouts, and killer restaurants. Allen, host, and creator is a Miami native and has been rocking it behind the mic since college. This sports enthusiast created #NewMiamiPod because he could see that South Florida is in a new era of sports. The Miami Hurricanes and Miami Dolphins both have new coaches, the Miami Marlins are looking to sell the team, Miami Heat is surviving without Wade and the Panthers are stronger than ever. All these pieces are part of the new Miami Sports era which Allen and co-host Lino aka LJ discuss each week.
Allen’s long time friend LJ is also a Miami native who is passionate about all South Fl sports teams. This duo has a great dynamic and interjects their 7+ years of friendship into their weekly show. Most main stream sports talk radio is hosted by individuals who are not even locals, so it’s refreshing to hear these two reference local land marks, events and rituals that only we would know about.
Allen’s Local Restaurant Pick: 27 Restaurant in Miami Beach
“Our mission is to unite culture and sports one episode at a time”-LJ
So break out the caja china, crack open a cold brew, put out the platter of croquetas and tune into the New Miami Pod! The best part is that you can listen to them at any time on various platforms.
