Podcasts Sep 20, 2022

Leigh Steinberg is a sports legend, representing a dozen NFL Hall of Famers and iconic figures in every sport, including Olympic champions. Famously a role model for Tom Cruise’s character in Jerry Maguire, Steinberg is on a mission to bring diversity, equity, and inclusion to the forefront in the sports industry. Steinberg has secured over $4 billion for his 300+ pro athlete clients (including today’s top quarterback Patrick Mahomes) and directed more than $750 million to various charities globally. He’s been lauded by Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and Obama and been interviewed by Larry King, but now he sits down with Jackie Ferguson for a wide-ranging discussion of the important topics facing the sports industry and society in the twenty-first century.
