Blue Wire and WynnBet cemented their relationship through a brand new studio set up at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas, and now they are announcing a pair of shows that will utilize the space. Bet to Wynn, hosted by WynnBET on-air hosts Claudia Bellofatto and Joe Fann, airs twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays starting Sept. 7. The show aims at personalizing the sports betting experience.

Will Blackmon is also joining the fold as host of Upsets and Underdogs starting Sept. 9. Blackmon’s show looks at stories around bad beats, upsets, and gambling topics that a re sport specific.

“His potential reminds us of a Nate Burleson,” Blue Wire CEO Kevin Jones told Awful Announcing about Blackmon. “He’s extremely polished, knows the Xs and Os but also is low key hysterical. He can build great chemistry quickly with guests. He’s been in the rotation at NFL Network and is a Sky Sports correspondent in London.”

Bellofatto joined WynnBet in July as an on-air personality after recently graduating from Syracuse University. She spent one year as a multimedia journalist at WJCB in Gainesville, Florida prior to joining WynnBet.

“Fresh out of Syracuse, Claudia is part of the new school of broadcasters who are well-versed in betting,” Jones said. “Claudia has growing platforms on multiple social media channels and can play the role of host or analyst with her knowledge. Her potential stood out to us after interviewing several women candidates for the role.”

Fann most recently cut his teeth with NBC Sports Northwest as their Seattle Seahawks reporter.

“His potential reminds us of Kyle Brandt on the NFL Network. He’s developed strong on-air skills at NBC Sports Northwest and 49ers.com. Has strong relationships and sources in the NFL. Funny, charming. Versatile to play host or analyst. Good at social media. Chose to work with Blue Wire and WynnBET over radio and writing opportunities. Really think Joe can discover his voice using this show as his platform. The beat reporter shackles are off.”

Blue Wire has made plenty of moves over the past year as they continue growing in the digital media space.
