Cumulus Media’s 104.5 The Zone in Nashville has beefed up its podcast offerings with a new show. 3 The Pro Way debuted this week with a trio of former athletes handling host duties.

Kevin Dyson, Joey Kent, and Todd Campbell have teamed up to give advice and tips on transitioning to new careers like they had to once their football tenures were over. The first episode is live now, featuring an in-depth interview with former-Titans star running back Eddie George.

“When Kevin, Joey, and Todd first shared their ‘3 The Pro Way’ podcast idea, I knew the 104.5 The Zone Podcast Network would be the perfect partner,” The Zone program director Paul Mason said in a press release. “I look forward to hearing a weekly conversation with different athletes and professionals on their career transitions. I am also excited to work with Todd, Joey, and Kevin in growing ‘3 The Pro Way’ within the 104.5 The Zone Podcast Network.”

Dyson has been a teacher, coach, athletic director, assistant principal since retiring from the NFL and currently serves as an executive principal of a high school. He is also a radio personality, motivational speaker, and presenter.

“Life is a journey filled with decisions and consequences that create life lessons for us to grow from,” Dyson said. “It is these life experiences that shape and mold us all; more specifically, our guests, who will share the stories of their individual journeys that led to their current success.”

Kent suited up for the Titans during Super Bowl XXXIV. He has worked in the insurance industry, general sales and is currently in pharmaceutical sales as a Territory Area Manager.

“I’m excited about this opportunity to have in-depth conversations with athletes and professionals from the business realm,” Kent said. “These conversations will focus on career transitions, but will also give the listener a peek behind the curtain of transformative experiences that have shaped their lives.”

Last but not least in the trio is Campbell, who has been a teacher, coach, athletic director, assistant principal, executive principal, and college professor. He is currently the CEO of a non-profit that helps students and families living in at-risk neighborhoods. 

“I love being able to listen to and share like experiences with those who have traveled a similar path to their perfect opportunity,” Campbell said about the experience.

Fans of the show can check out new episodes dropping every Monday at 8 a.m. CT wherever you get your podcasts.

Greg Hill to Jeff Van Gundy: ‘You Sounded Like You Were on the Bucks’ Payroll’

They are nothing if not blunt in Boston. That was the case Tuesday morning when The Greg Hill Show welcomed ABC/ESPN NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy to the program to preview the Eastern Conference Finals.

Overall, it was a cordial visit. Questions mostly focused on the headlines related to officiating throughout the playoffs and what the Celtics would have to do to make it to the NBA Finals, which Van Gundy thinks will happen.

“I think Boston’s been the best team in the league,” he said. “I think they’re gonna win it all this year.”

Greg Hill said after the conference semi-finals matchup with Milwaukee, he was surprised to hear Jeff Van Gundy felt that way.

“Jeez, I’m glad to hear you say that,” Hill told Van Gundy. “It almost sounded like you were on the Bucks’ payroll at times during that last series.”

After a pregnant pause, Van Gundy answered through laughter, throwing a zinger right back at Hill and crew.

“You know what? I get used to that and then the Bucks people say I want Boston to win. Not that you guys would be homers or anything.”

Jeff Van Gundy will join Mike Breen and Mark Jackson at the broadcast table for the Eastern Conference Finals on ABC and ESPN. Game 1 between the Celtics and Heat is scheduled for Tuesday night at 8:30 in Miami.
