NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony to Launch Debut Podcast with Creative 7 and Cadence13
On “What’s In Your Glass?”, the top-10 NBA all-time scorer, 10-time NBA All-Star, and wine connoisseur partners with Cadence13 and will be joined with special guests and leaders across industries including Mark Cuban, Andra Day, Shaka King, T-Pain, and JJ Redick and more to talk about life while exploring the world of fine wine
NEW YORK (July 20, 2021)—Top-10 all-time NBA scorer, 10-time NBA All-Star, and 3-time Olympic gold medalist Carmelo Anthony today announced that he and his multi-platform content company Creative 7 are partnering with Cadence13, an Audacy company, to launch the debut podcast edition of Anthony’s viral wine-focused YouTube series “What’s In Your Glass?”. The new platform will allow Anthony to deliver new episodes with even more engaging, inspiring and timely conversations with global icons.
Anthony, a future first-ballot Hall of Famer, is one of the NBA’s biggest stars. After his 18th season in the league, Anthony is at the forefront of a growing wine movement in the NBA. Anthony began his wine journey over a decade ago and uses his platform to educate others and make the industry more inclusive and accessible.
On “What’s In Your Glass?”, Anthony will invite listeners to sit in on intimate chats with leading guests from the worlds of sports, wine, business, entertainment, music, politics, and more over a glass (or two) of wine—because wine is a drink best shared. Notable upcoming guests include Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, leading songstress Andra Day, Oscar-winning filmmaker Shaka King, legendary rapper T-Pain, NBA star JJ Redick, Mavericks’ sharpshooter and host of Cadence13’s “The Old Man & the Three,” and more.
In addition to discussing the world of wine, Anthony will also spearhead in-depth conversations about the timely issues facing our society. Social justice is at the heart of all Anthony’s endeavors, both on and off the court, and that passion was most recently recognized in June 2021 when Anthony was named the inaugural winner of the NBA's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Justice Champion award for “his dedication over the past year to pursuing social justice and advancing Abdul-Jabbar’s life mission to engage, empower and drive equality for individuals and groups who have been historically marginalized or systemically disadvantaged.”
“What’s In Your Glass?” will launch with all-new episodes on July 22, 2021 on Apple Podcasts,
Audacy, Spotify and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be available every Thursday across podcast platforms and on YouTube. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here: https://link.chtbl.com/KdCnQJPC.
“I’m excited to be working with Cadence13 to bring back ‘What’s In Your Glass?’ in a brand new format and introduce it to the world of audio,” said Anthony. “We have some incredible conversations lined up, so I can’t wait for listeners to pour a glass and join us each week as we talk about life, current events, and of course, all-things wine.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with world-class athlete, and a leading voice for social justice, Carmelo Anthony as he continues to achieve greatness on and off the court,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer. “As he explores his passion for wine and more, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Carmelo to the Cadence13 family and listen to these conversations.”

About Carmelo Anthony
A leader and pioneer on the basketball court, Carmelo Anthony has led a storied career as both a ten-time NBA All-Star and four-time Olympian. He is the only male basketball player to win three Olympic gold medals in history, and his legacy continues today with the Portland Trail Blazers. Anthony’s incredible career on the court has paved the way for his many other brands, business ventures, and philanthropic efforts on a global platform, but lesser known are the seemingly immeasurable odds the All-Star overcame growing up amidst poverty, racism, violence, mental illness, and a broken education system. Anthony’s roots propel his passion for giving back to those that need it most, and in 2005 he founded The Carmelo Anthony Foundation as a vehicle for community impact and social reform through a variety of outreach programs, disaster relief initiatives, and donations. Anthony continues to be a champion for actionable change that pushes the next generation forward, and his passions truly merge in the wine industry. As a wine aficionado, beyond working on a wine of his own, he uses his platform to foster representation and inclusivity in the industry, and remains a leading voice at the forefront of the ongoing fight for social justice.
