iHeartMedia & PepsiCo Beverages Launch Podcast Pepsi Coach’s Corner. The podcast spotlights interviews and lessons from renowned coaches.
Pepsi Coach’s Corner will be hosted by PepsiCo VP of HR Michael Rady. The launch will feature a double-episode special featuring Don Mattingly, 2020 National League Manager of the Year and current manager for the Miami Marlins, and Robert Jones, 2021 HBCU Co-Coach of the Year, 2019 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Coach of the Year and current Head Coach of Historically Black College and University Norfolk State. There will also be an introduction by Dick Vitale.
Rady is a 14-year veteran of PepsiCo and the son of esteemed Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame coach Pat Rady. The podcast was inspired by his father’s coaching career.
“Throughout my career, I have witnessed the intrinsic connection between leadership on the sports field (or court) and in business– that the concept of coaching is as important in any work setting as it is in sports,” said Rady. “We created the Pepsi Coach’s Corner podcast to serve as a resource for all levels of leaders, from early career to executive, human resources professionals, and sports enthusiasts alike. Partnering with iHeartRadio provided the perfect platform to share perspectives from respected coaches and leaders in sports and make them easily accessible to listeners at any time.”
Upcoming installments of Pepsi Coach’s Corner will be released monthly and feature interviews with recognized coaches from across the sports landscape – including Jon Cooper, Stanley Cup Champion Head Coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning; Tamika Catchings, former WNBA Champion and Current VP of Basketball Operations & General Manager of the Indiana Fever; Dan Mullen, Head Football Coach of the Florida Gators, Marianne Stanley, Hall-of-Famer and Head Coach of the Indiana Fever; and more!
