Sports, discuss the brand’s approach to producing original and relatable betting content via social and digital channels to increase audience engagement (particularly with Gen Z) and amplif key sports betting and fantasy initiatives.

Yahoo Sports’ approach is being anchored by new programming offerings this season, including weekly fantasy video segments titled “Ekeler’s Edge” starring Los Angeles Chargers’ running back Austin Ekeler and “Yahoo Sportsbook Live.”
