For the fourth consecutive year, the PokerNews Podcast will broadcast live from the halls of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino during the World Series of Poker, and this summer we are adding a bit of hardware to the crew.
We are proud to announce that 2011 WSOP bracelet winner and Ultimate Poker pro Jason Somerville will cohost the live, hour-long program alongside PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters and Senior Editor Rich Ryan every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 1:30 p.m. PST. Fans will be able to watch the show live on our YouTube channel — it will also be archived in video format — or you can still listen to us over on iTunes.
Somerville, who has over $2.5 million in career live tournament earnings, is excited to join the team and share his stories, hand histories, and results from the WSOP.
This summer the PokerNews Podcast is sure to be better than ever at the WSOP, with new state-of-the-art equipment, a booth right outside of the Amazon Room, fun games, giveaways, and interviews with some of the biggest names in the game.
"I couldn't be more thrilled to welcome Jason to the team," Ryan said. "He brings a second gold bracelet to the squad — thanks, Chad Holloway — adding credibility and a unique lens to the inner workings of the WSOP. The listeners will be able to experience the long summer grind right alongside Jason."
Until the start of the WSOP, the PokerNews Podcast will be released every Wednesday. Be on the lookout for special guests from EPT Sanremo, the WPT Championship, and the EPT Grand Final.
