Discover how Evan Kirkham (CEO of Colorcast) is disrupting the sports casting industry, why his involvement in a Presidential campaign helped him become a CEO, and what he discovered by opening the door for criticism (12 minutes).
CEO BLINDSPOTS PODCAST GUEST: Evan Kirkham. He is the CEO of Colorcast, which is a company that is disrupting the sportscasting industry. Colorcast created the first of its kind social audio-only broadcasting app that allows sports commentary by anybody, for anybody, with no equipment.
The Colorcast app has drawn celebrity commentators, such as rapper Vic Mensa, who also serves as an advisor. Colorcast broadcasters have also interviewed athletes, such as former Pittsburgh Steelers players Ryan Shazier, Ike Taylor and James Washington; L.A. Rams safety Taylor Rapp; and Atlanta Falcons fullback Keith Smith.
Before founding Colorcast, Evan obtained his Juris Doctorate from SMU Dedman School of Law and practiced commercial litigation at the Dallas-based Carrington, Coleman, Sloman & Blumenthal. Kirkham is an adventurer, a hockey player, and a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan.
Evan and his Colorcast team give aspiring broadcasters an opportunity to call huge nationally televised games that they wouldn’t have had access to otherwise.
So how does it work? Step one: Download Colorcast. Step two: Click the event that matches what you’re watching on TV. And that’s it, you’re already “On Air.” Worried about what you’re going to say? Commentators, also known as “Casters“ on the platform, don’t have to worry about planning what they’re going to say because everyone — listeners and Casters — are watching the same thing at the same time. Just react to what’s happening on the screen.
