On Know Mercy with Stephen A.

“It’s hard to put into words how excited I am about this opportunity. Although my love for sports will never fade, neither has my zest for expanding my interest beyond the court or field of play. I love news. I love entertainment. Above all else, I love attaching myself to, and touching on, things that are percolating in the minds of the masses — with no inhibitions,” said Stephen A. Smith. “Regardless of subject matter, to have the opportunity to do so with a podcast I personally own, with content I personally control, is an adventure I’ve waited to tackle head-on for my entire career. Well, it’s here now, and I’m excited to do it with Cadence13. I’m ready. I hope everyone is, too, for what’s coming. Buckle up!”
“Stephen A. Smith is a larger-than-life talent and force of nature whose indelible passion, wit, and candor ignite every conversation he’s a part of, engaging millions of fans along the way,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and Founding Partner, Cadence13. “We could not be more thrilled to add his singular, powerful voice to the Cadence13 lineup, and to bring ‘Know Mercy’ to the world.”
