Blue Ant Media’s HauntTV Launches on VIZIO WatchFree+
19 October 2022
Programming includes the exclusive world premiere of Haunted Gold Rush and US premiere of Hotel Paranormal Season 2
Blue ant international holds worldwide rights for haunted gold rush.
(Toronto, ON – Oct 19, 2022) International producer, distributor and channel operator, Blue Ant Media announced today the launch of its free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channel HauntTV on VIZIO WatchFree+ in the U.S. The channel’s extensive library of paranormal-themed programming is now available to VIZIO’s audiences beginning this month.
Additionally, VIZIO will premiere two exclusive original series from Blue Ant Media during its Fall Fest line-up.
- The global premiere of Haunted Gold Rush (2 x 60’; HD), Blue Ant Media’s first-ever original FAST-first docu-series explores the ghostly mysteries along an historic Gold Rush Trail in British Columbia, told through the eyes of a strong female force of paranormal investigators, Corine Carey , Leanne Sallenback and Kelly Ireland . British Columbia’s Cariboo Gold Rush trail was a bustling, wild and often violent place in the 1800s. Today, the 650 km stretch of land is considered a hotspot for paranormal activity and has hundreds of stories of hauntings from more than a dozen locations. Ghost sightings along this trail are nothing new, but recently there have been numerous intense and dramatic reports. Now, three paranormal detectives have been called in to take an unprecedented road-trip and retrace this historic Gold Rush Trail. The documentary follows them as they solve mysteries and witness hauntings along the way. Haunted Gold Rush is produced by Small Army Entertainment in association with Blue Ant Media. Blue Ant International oversees global distribution.
- The exclusive U.S. premiere of Hotel Paranormal , Season 2 . Narrated by Emmy® Award-winning and Oscar®-nominated actor Dan Aykroyd , who is a firm believer in the paranormal, the second installment of this fan-favorite series ramps up the scares with more real-life stories of otherworldly run-ins at hotels. The terrifying paranormal encounters take place at 4-star hotels, bed and breakfasts, highway motels and inns around the world. From hotel workers and guests witnessing objects flying across the room to uncovering trapped ancient spirits and experiencing demonic possession, Hotel Paranormal brings to life terrifying encounters with dramatic recreations and paranormal expert insights. Hotel Paranormal is produced by Saloon Media , a Blue Ant Media company. Blue Ant International oversees global distribution.
Following the Fall Fest premiere on VIZIO, these series will appear on the HauntTV channel, with Haunted Gold Rush premiering on October 27 and Hotel Paranormal , Season 2 on October 28:

15 Best Paranormal TV Shows to Watch That Will Creep You Out
Let's go ahead and leave the lights on, ok.
Unlike straight-up horror, paranormal stories do something to a person's psyche that lingers long after the screen fades to black. The feeling is like no other, and before one knows it, there's something lurking behind the shower curtain or under the bed. So why do audiences keep coming back for more of the best ghost TV shows? It's hard to pinpoint, but what is certain is a new means of telling ghost stories seems to pop up every day, and they never lose audiences. On the contrary, with such a rich variety to chill the blood, if anything, paranormal shows are more popular than ever.
Luckily for fans of the genre who don't know what to watch next, there is plenty to choose from — these are some of the best paranormal shows that are guaranteed to make the audience's blood run cold . Whether you're in the mood for fictional scepters, true stories, or full-on night-vision encounters, there is no shortage of spine-tingling series to trick your mind into thinking that sound wasn't just the neighbors. Just make sure to lock the doors and windows, first.
15 '28 Days Haunted' (2022)
Netflix's docuseries and one of the more recent ghost shows, 28 Days Haunted centers on four teams of brave paranormal investigators, who travel through some of America's most haunted locations in order to execute a paranormal experiment based on the theories of Ed and Lorraine Warren .
While the 2022 show doesn't count on flawless execution (and features mixed reviews), it still manages to send chills down many spines . Though some members of the audience don't believe that what happens through the episodes is real, it still helps keep boredom at bay.
Watch on Netflix
14 'Ghost Wars' (2017 - 2018)
Created by simon barry.
Two seasons in, this Netflix series starring scene-stealers Kim Coates and Vincent D'Onofrio has its pros and cons in terms of providing creepy material. On one hand, the entire show is fiction; on the other, it's full of ghosts, so if audiences are looking to scratch that paranormal content itch, they're in the right place. The series is about a small Alaskan town in which all residents are trapped, experiencing non-stop obstacles from evil spirits who wish to do harm – and lots of it.
The dialogue is a little awkward at times, and the pacing can feel stunted, but the ghosts! So many ghosts. For fans of action (as the title clearly states), there will be guns and blood and car crashes, but the show can also be alarmingly frightening at times, so if you're looking for a good jump scare , you're in the right place .

13 'Surviving Death' (2021)
Directed by ricki stern.
Another Netflix original series, Surviving Death , is different from the others on the list, as it focuses on a variety of topics: mediums, signs from the dead, reincarnation, ghosts, and even interviews with individuals who died yet lived to tell the tale. In short, no two episodes are alike.
Part talking-head documentary, part educational programming (100% creepy as hell), this series, aside from being fascinating, works well in giving goosebumps because of how sincere each person is in recollecting their encounter. Also featuring medical doctors and other learned professionals, the paranormal show provides an iron-clad ethos that is both difficult to argue with and extraordinarily unsettling . Sleep tight.
12 'The Secret of Crickley Hall' (2012)
Directed by joe ahearne.
The BBC three-part series , also streaming on Amazon, is based on the novel by James Herbert and begins with the screams of a young boy. It's a tragic tale: a young child goes missing from a playground, and the couple tries to cope with the immeasurable loss. In their grief, they choose to move with their other young children to a sprawling estate in the middle of nowhere. Soon, they realize they've moved into a former orphanage, where unspeakable horrors occurred.
Featuring some familiar faces, such as a young Maisie Williams and Lucifer 's Tom Ellis , the frightening series offers a quick pace and an even quicker heartbeat. Featuring flashbacks of the orphanage's last days, coupled with suspenseful and frightening happenings within the home, the series is as creepy as it is tense and tragic .
Watch on Prime Video
11 'Paranormal Investigators: Phasmophobia' (2020)
Directed by atila kaldy.
From Australia, this reality series features psychic Andrea Kaldy , who investigates well-known haunted areas to determine if they are, in fact, haunted – be it by ghosts, poltergeists, or even demonic entities.
After investigating, Kaldy invites 3 participants to enter the location alone and complete a challenge before they are able to leave – unless they run scared, first. Perfect for fans of ghost shows, the creepy content doesn't begin straight away but rest assured, it will. The show is squeal-worthy , mainly because watching people get scared can also be terrifying. The question is, are the participants (and audiences) jumping to conclusions?

10 'Ghost Hunters' (2004 - )
Directed by mark marinaccio.
A classic in the genre of ghost hunting shows with many still tuning in to watch it, Ghost Hunters features Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson , the founding members of The Atlantic Paranormal Society or TAPS, as they search for paranormal activity around the United States. Popular for over a decade, the series has had a dedicated following for being one of the first shows of its kind.
There are some 14 seasons in all, and what makes them so successful is undoubtedly the men's use of compelling evidence by way of video footage in the show , electromagnetic field (EMF) readers, sound recordings, and eyewitness accounts – many of which terrified audiences get to see themselves (if they haven't covered their eyes in fear, that is).
Watch on Fubo
9 'The Enfield Haunting' (2015)
Directed by kristoffer nyholm.
This three-part limited series wastes no time in creeping out its audience. Set in 1977 and based on a true story, the show surrounds a mother and her three children who are terrorized by an angry poltergeist. When paranormal investigators arrive, played by Timothy Spall and Matthew Macfadyen , things go from bad to worse.
Nominated for 2 BAFTAs, The Enfield Haunting is chock-full of suspense and screams. One could argue that the muted brown and orange tones or the involvement of children is the cause of its fear factor, but it's more likely the sheer evil of the unwelcoming house guest that causes the lasting chills . It's telling that the true events also inspired The Conjuring 2 .
8 'Paranormal' (2020)
Directed by amr salama and majid al ansari.
Based on the novels by Dr. Ahmed Khaled Tawfik , Netflix's first Egyptian Arabic original series provides a different tone to the mix: its protagonist, Dr. Ismail ( Ahmed Amin ), is a mild-mannered and close-lipped man, determined to neglect his past paranormal experiences and instead focus on verifiable causes and effects. An unlikely skeptic, he is unwillingly brought back into the world of his past just as a former love comes back to Cairo.
Set in both 1940 and 1969, the backdrop of the Arab-Israeli war and the upheaval it causes serves to mirror Ismail's own uncertainty, especially when his nephew begins to experience eerily similar haunting experiences. Beautifully shot and sickening at the same time , this series goes to show why Tawfik sold millions and millions of hair-raising copies.
7 'The Holzer Files' (2019 - )
Produced by rob saffi.
When it comes to paranormal TV shows, The Holzer Files is definitely worth mentioning. The horror mystery series follows a team of investigators who unearth the terrifying true hauntings from the case files of America's first parapsychologist best known for his plethora of hundreds of cases dealing with the occult, Dr. Hans Holzer .
The Holzer Files is assuredly an interesting take on Holzer's files, providing audiences with an intriguingly spooky time in the meantime. Additionally, it is also very refreshing and different from other shows of the genre.
6 'A Haunting' (2005 - )
Developed by allison erkelens.
A Haunting is 11 seasons long so far, and understandably so. Its interesting premise revolves around experiences and encounters with the paranormal, which are told by the victims and illustrated to audiences through frightening re-enactments.
The anthology supernatural surely succeeds in showcasing a chilling and haunting depiction of bizarre stories and is guaranteed to terrify audiences. Furthermore, A Haunting is widely considered one of the greatest series of the kind and assuredly makes for a very atmospheric, entertaining, and worthwhile watch.
5 'Paranormal Nightmare' (2019)
Hosted by the fourmen brothers.
This documentary/reality series stars three humble hosts ( the Fourmen brothers ) on a mission. Having suffered paranormal trauma as children, the brothers travel through the United States with the hope of helping similar victims. The credible and harrowing accounts from those interviewed by the hosts are enough to give audiences the chills, but it's when the sun goes down that things get real.
Using their night-vision cameras and EMF readers, the men capture unexplained images and sounds so spooky that it's difficult to look away or even blink. No doubt, Paranormal Nightmare is one of the creepiest paranormal series on the platform .
Watch on Pluto
4 'Paranormal Witness' (2011 - 2016)
Directed by neil rawles.
In this appalling true horror mystery documentary named Paranormal Witness , which is an incredible addition to the genre, viewers are introduced to several stories of people who have lived through supernatural experiences that left big, unanswerable question marks behind.
Paranormal Witness is one of the best in its category. It is equal parts interesting and horrifying, featuring credible eyewitness accounts of paranormal activity and thus coming across as a very believable TV show. No doubt, these frightening series provide audiences with a thrilling time in front of the screen and will likely keep them up at night.
3 'the x-files' (1993 - 2018), created by chris carter.
The X-Files is one of the most well-regarded and highest-rated paranormal/supernatural series out there and for very good reason. With an enthralling plot and incredible acting performances, this innovative show revolves around two FBI Special Agents ( David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson ) as they investigate a series of bizarre phenomena.
Through time, The X-Files remained a classic, capturing the attention of many people all over the globe. In addition to a well-written storyline, it also features a good dose of scary moments involving monsters, disturbing scenarios, and incredibly violent acts .
Two F.B.I. Agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained, while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.

2 'The Haunting of Hill House' (2018)
Created by mike flanagan.
Based on the novel of the same name by acclaimed horror writer Shirley Jackson , and directed by Mike Flanagan, The Haunting of Hill House has proven to be one of Netflix's most popular series . In it, audiences meet the Crain siblings as they gather for the funeral of one of their own. Together for the first time in years, it does not take long before the ghosts of their past come back to haunt them – literally.
Though there are sometimes dramatic stretches between big scares, the story delivers its full-fledged creepiness in its mixture of flashbacks and real-time storylines that both serve to scare and tug at one's heartstrings. Undeniably, however, it has made worldwide audiences unable to close their eyes when they go to bed for fear of the Bent-Neck Lady.
The Haunting of Hill House
1 'haunted' (2018 -), directed by jan pavlacky.
This Netflix show has everything: true ghost stories, creepy imagery, and jump-worthy reenactments. In it, people deeply affected by paranormal trauma participate in a round-table discussion of sorts with their friends and/or family members in between dramatic renditions of their terrifying tales.
At times, families have yet to disclose details to one another, which leads to emotional TV, while friends of the victims are often visibly shaken. What stands out is the production value (especially in Season 3), as it is very high, so the reenactments are often as sinister as they are cinematic .

Haunted discoveries: new paranormal series with a twist coming soon.
Haunted Discoveries , a forthcoming new paranormal TV show, came to my attention on March 18 when I Tweeted, “Is there a location you’re sick of seeing investigated on TV? What about one you’d like to see investigated more?”
Normally my Tweets go ignored, but this one elicited a lot of responses, including an intriguing one from Mustafa Gatollari. Along with Brandon Alvis, he was one of the new cast members when A&E rebooted Ghost Hunters with Grant Wilson in 2019.
“We have pretty much all new locations in our new series, @HauntedDiscover ,” he responded.
“We” it turns out is him and Brandon Alvis, along with two others, who we’ll get to.
“Oh this is excellent!” I replied. “When’s it premiering? How do I get more info? Can you hook me up with a press release or anything so I can write about it? Thanks for this at least! The hunt for more info is now underway!”
He told me to send him an email and he’d pass some info along, which is exactly what he did. Let’s take a look at what we know about Haunted Discoveries so far and why it might be different than “just another paranormal tv show.”
Haunted Discoveries Aims to Breathe Fresh Air into Stale Genre
Stargazer Films in association with A&G Creative has wrapped production on Haunted Discoveries, a paranormal docu-series helmed by A&E’s Ghost Hunters investigators Brandon Alvis and Mustafa Gatollari. They are joined by historical researcher Malia Miglino and longtime paranormal investigator Kevin Otte.
“We’re telling real ghost stories in a beautiful, cinematic way,” Gatollari said. “Brandon’s not just an incredible paranormal investigator, he’s a ridiculously talented filmmaker. To combine emotional and scary tales with legitimate research is a dream come true.”
“The genre has become stale. It’s an old hat, and Haunted Discoveries is going to upend the current slate of paranormal TV in a big, big way,” Alvis added.
The Haunted Discoveries Approach
The breakout stars of the reality show take a themed approach a la American Horror Story . Spanning 8-episodes, they chronicle Alvis’ search for a haunted location to serve as a home for the American Paranormal Research Association.
The series is rooted in Kentucky, where the team delves into the state’s most historic haunts. They explore everything from the estates of prominent families and old jails to witchcraft ritual sites, many of which have been repurposed into bed & breakfasts or museums that have embraced their ghostly claims. At the same time, they analyze mysterious environmental anomalies tied to the state.
Another thing Alvis and Gatollari do in the new series is expand on the groundbreaking methodology laid out in their best-selling book Elements of a Haunting .

They also incorporate never-before-seen experiments, including tech developed by Zak Heino, an aerospace engineer, and they collaborate with Harry ‘Doc’ Kloor, an accomplished scientist. Kloor was first to be awarded two PhDs simultaneously in two distinct academic disciplines both earned at Purdue University. In recognition of this achievement, he was named ABC person of the week in August 1994.
“The goal of A.P.R.A. has always been to try and move paranormal analysis out of the realm of pseudoscience and establish it as a legitimate field of study, and the best way to do that is subject our finds to scientific scrutiny,” Alvis said.
Haunted Discoveries Locations
We don’t have a full list yet.
However, an article on PopSugar revealed a few places the Haunted Discoveries team visited in Kentucky, including the Grand Victorian Inn in Park City, the Hall Place Bed & Breakfast in Glasgow, and the Talbott Tavern in Bardstown.
Haunted Discoveries Release Info
My first question is the same as fans of Gatollari and Alvis: “When and where can we watch Haunted Discoveries ?”
When Gatollari sent me the info about the show, he also mentioned, “We’ve been receiving a lot of questions about where it will be streaming/airing. We can’t disclose that information yet unfortunately but we will have network/service information soon!”
You know as soon as I hear anything, I’ll shout.
Would you like to see more scientific scrutiny applied to paranormal TV shows?
Courtney Mroch is a globe-trotting restless spirit who’s both possessed by wanderlust and the spirit of adventure, as well as obsessed with true crime, horror, the paranormal, and weird days. Perhaps it has something to do with her genes? She is related to occult royalty, after all. Marie Laveau, the famous Voodoo practitioner of New Orleans, is one of her ancestors. That could also explain her infatuation with skeletons.

Scientific scrutiny is interesting, but I enjoy personal accounts just as much. They engage my emotions.
Thank you for saying this. I guess it needs both for balance. I wasn’t considering that but when I think of shows with personal accounts that I like (mostly of the true crime variety though), I like when they blend all the perspectives because it engages my emotions and draws me into the story. But I never would’ve been able to tell you that until your comment. Which, see? You are concise and here I go rambling again with TMI! lol
Thank you for this story. Being from Kentucky, I’m super excited about the show. Maybe there will be a chance to meet the cast.
That is exciting, William! Cool. I hope you get to meet the cast too one day.
Any idea where we can watch this yet?
Hi Janna! SO wild you asked because I was just thinking the other day, “Huh. I don’t remember seeing anything about Haunted Discoveries. I must check on that.” I will do that this week and write an update post…but also reply again here to let you know. THANKS for the inspiration to get my rear in gear!
Thank you Courtney! I’m very interested to see what they have going on next?
Hey Janna! After stalking their socials to see if I’d missed a release announcement, I saw they’re in the process of filming season 2. But since there was no word about where to watch season 1, I emailed Brandon and Mustafa. Brandon wrote back over the weekend and said season 1 hasn’t been released anywhere, but they are hoping to make an announcement soon about all of that. So…our wait continues. But I’m hopeful it’s nearing an end? lol Thanks again for reaching out and prompting me to delve into something I’d been meaning to!

The Scariest Haunted Episodes, Ranked, Including Season 3
Spoiler Alert! The following story contains spoilers from these episodes of Netflix's Haunted, so stop reading now if you haven't watched yet!
TV shows featuring real people telling their ghost stories are a dime a dozen these days, and it's easy to see why. Who doesn't like to get a little scared in the safety of their own home? The fact that the stories are said to be true just adds to the decadence. Haunted, which recently released its third season on Netflix , brings its offering of the genre in an enjoyably unique way.
Instead of a talking head telling their story to a producer, Haunted puts the narrator/storyteller in a sitting room surrounded by family and friends, not unlike gathering around a campfire. In some cases they're telling their story for the first time. In other episodes, the retelling seems to serve as validation of what they've been through, and possibly a chance to move on. The terrifying tales are accompanied by intense re-enactments, and Haunted uses the old adage of "show, don't tell" to its full advantage. Take a look at the six episodes I've chosen as the scariest of the three seasons currently available on Netflix.
6. The Mimic (Season 2, Episode 1)
After Becca and Jared moved into a new house, they began to be haunted by an entity in the basement, dubbed The Mimic, that could take on the voice or likeness of their friends. Their buddy Brandon, who had moved into the basement, tells of a night when the entity came into the basement in the likeness of Becca, seducing him. As they started kissing, The Mimic disintegrated right in front of him. They all moved out of the house after a nasty tentacled monster crawled out of the basement and attacked Becca.
Scariest moment: Brandon pulling rotten flesh out of his mouth is not a moment I'll soon forget.
5. Haunted by Henry (Season 3, Episode 2):
As kids, Wyatt and Jessica were haunted by the ghost of Henry Croft, who used to run the town's mining business. Both children saw the ghost, who would smoke a cigar and lure Wyatt into dangerous situations. The ghost pushed him down a staircase and caused him to step on fishing tackles, which had to be surgically removed. One night when the kids were at the house with some friends, Henry's ghost trashed the house, overturning furniture and throwing plates as the children tried to run to safety.
Scariest moment: During the interview, a technical difficulty caused all the lights in the studio to go out, clearly rattling the siblings, particularly Jessica, who was describing the guilt she carried after her friend died in a car accident that night after witnessing what happened at the house.
4. Spirits From Below (Season 2, Episode 4)
Elle told a story about a tall man, an old woman and little girl haunting her family's home. Elle's parents wouldn't allow her to talk about the spirits, saying, "If you don't look at it, it won't scare you." The children could hear their dolls laughing, and the girl ghost set their house on fire, burning down half of it. As Elle grew older, the haunting continued, and the spirits tried to drown her toddler nephew and got her to attempt suicide. Elle moved out after she became possessed and tried to kill her husband.
Scariest moment: Elle's mother had known of the evil spirits all along and their intent, as she told Elle before she died, "Too bad they want to get you," as she looked up at the three ghosts standing at the top of the stairs.
3. Gift of Evil (Season 3, Episode 3)
Emily got a music box and locket as birthday gifts from her godmother that were haunted by the ghost of a little girl, also named Emily, who had been killed. The rotting corpse ghost started appearing to Emily, once trying to drown her in the bathtub and another time biting her in her sleep. When Emily moved in with her boyfriend and his daughter, they also started feeling the effects of the music box ghost, and the daughter was attacked, causing her boyfriend to end the relationship. A medium told Emily the ghost doesn't want to leave her.
Scariest moment: The creepy warped song from music box that signaled the ghost's arrival, and the little girl hanging from the ceiling watching Emily.
2. Born Cursed (Season 2, Episode 6)
Oscar's mother was a believer in black magic, but despite a cleansing when she was pregnant with him, there was an evil entity that followed him. "The Hangman," as Oscar called him, would sit in Oscar's room every night and watch him, which kept Oscar from sleeping. As he got older, the situation got worse. The Hangman started beating him in his sleep and threatening to kill his brother. Oscar attempted suicide, after which the haunting seemed to stop. But lately, Oscar said, his children have been starting to see things.
Scariest moment: On a family vacation in Mexico, a troupe of clowns was run over at a parade. One was a creepy Twisty-like clown with a wide grin, who revealed himself to be The Hangman. The clown later appeared to Oscar, his brother and a cousin at their grandparents' house, chasing them and killing their dog.
1. The Woman In White (Season 1, Episode 1)
Jason's family moved into an apartment when he was a kid, where just a week earlier, a woman had killed her two children and hanged herself in the closet. The woman began appearing to Jason, jerkily crawling out of his closet with the noose around her neck every night for six years. After they moved, the haunting stopped for a while. But then the Woman in White appeared when Jason was riding his bike with a friend, causing him to get hit by a car. They rushed back to his friend's house to get help, and the ghost had inhabited his friend's mom, who told Jason, "You're supposed to be dead."
Scariest moment: A few days before coming to film the show, the Woman in White was standing by Jason's bed when he woke up, and he had to tell his family that he can't evade death much longer.
Most of the stories in Haunted focus on ghosts or possessions of some sort, though there are a few episodes that tackle aliens, an evil cat and even gay conversion therapy (i.e. torture). But whether it's the subject matter, the format or a combination of things, the show always left me super weirded out.

Pat McAfee Shatters Old TV Rules and Shows How Much ESPN’s Game Is Changing
McAfee shouldn't be able to do what he's doing on ESPN. But he will (for now).
By Brian Steinberg

- Skydance Investors in Talks to Gain Control of Paramount Global Via National Amusements Takeover 2 days ago
ESPN has been giving one of its newest show hosts a lot of rope despite a years-long policy of keeping talent on a very short leash.
Pat McAfee has generated reams of unwanted publicity for the Disney-backed sports-media giant in recent days, allowing frequent guest Aaron Rodgers to spread misinformation about vaccinations; insulting Norby Williamson, an influential ESPN executive who manages many studio shows and tries to keep a tight rein on them, and accusing him of working to sabotage his show in talks to media outlets; and giving Rodgers room to call out Jimmy Kimmel, the ABC late-night host who is one of the most high-profile employees in the Disney empire.
But McAfee’s antics fill a need in an era when more of the cable customers who pay billions in fees to ESPN are leaving for streaming-video frontiers. “It appears ESPN is willing to tolerate a lot to have this level of attention,” says Nicole Kraft, director of Ohio State University’s Sports & Society Initiative.
ESPN on Wednesday seemed to gain new control over McAfee, who told his viewers that Rodgers, a regular guest who is paid for his appearances, would stop appearing while this NFL season is in play. No one said Rodgers would not return.
In the past, ESPN has demonstrated a near zero-tolerance for similar antics, even cutting off some of its most prominent personnel. ESPN in 2017 yanked a new show called “Barstool Van Talk” off the air 10 days after launching a partnership with Barstool Sports, the one-time upstart sports-media site that delivers raunch and outrageous commentary. Barstool staffers had taken to social media to criticize longtime ESPN staffer Sam Ponder after she took issue with Barstool articles online. Last year, ESPN parted ways with Sage Steele , a veteran anchor and host who came under management’s scrutiny in 2021 after making comments on an outside podcast about getting vaccinated and criticizing ESPN’s coronavirus policy, saying that “it’s sick and it’s scary.”
During his short time on ESPN’s schedule, McAfee has managed to trip similar sensibilities, yet his show remains intact. The company in recent days has issued statements noting that Rodgers’ quips about Kimmel were “dumb and factually incorrect” and “should never have happened.” As for McAfee’s on-air targeting of Williamson, whom he accused of trying to undermine his program by disseminating ratings information to media outlets, ESPN said, “No one is more committed to and invested in ESPN’s success than Norby Williamson. At the same time, we are thrilled with the multi-platform success that we have seen from ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ across ESPN. We will handle this matter internally and have no further comment.”
ESPN did not make executives available for comment.
Some damage appears to be done. Many observers agree Tuesday’s McAfee broadcast, during which Rodgers was given free rein to rant about vaccinations, was not ESPN’s finest moment. Williamson may remain under an industry microscope, as those who do business with ESPN monitor whether the company continues to back him. A person familiar with the matter suggested executives would focus on getting both McAfee and Williamson to work through any perceived issues and think more about the company’s overall success.
Under the aegis of Jimmy Pitaro , Disney’s current sports chief, ESPN has tried to tamp down employee commentary about politics and cultural issues. The executive’s predecessor, John Skipper, tended to allow staffers to sound off more often, then would issue disciplinary measures depending on public reaction. Pitaro is less a fan of punishing people in public view, choosing instead to work things out through internal discussion.
“We are not a political organization. We are a sports-media company. And our focus is on serving the sports fans,” Pitaro told Variety in 2018, just after he was elevated to lead ESPN.
To be sure, some sports fans thrive on debates around the wider world of sports. McAfee’s hire in some ways reflects that, as ESPN seeks to keep current with aficionados who can find any number of outside podcasts, videocasts and audio programs that chew up the issues of the day that have little to do with touchdowns, home runs or free-throw percentages. Fox Corp. in 2021 bought Outkick , a sports-and-commentary site led by conservative pundit Clay Travis. Two popular former ESPN personalities, Dan Le Batard and Pablo Torre, now hold forth on shows backed by Meadowlark Media, founded by Le Batard and John Skipper.
In a different era, people who left ESPN were consigned to new obscurity. But in an era of mobile video, subscription-based digital sites and social media, anyone can launch their hot take into the sport-o-sphere. You don’t have to be on Disney to hit a sports-media home run.
Enter Pat McAfee. ESPN is essentially licensing his program over a five-year period and is said to be paying $85 million. No one is building a new program around McAfee, but rather adopting one the host has already built. McAfee’s show is produced by his own staff, not by ESPN employees, so the network has less control over its daily ebb and flow. But the younger viewers who like McAfee’s stuff are what the network needs.
“The Pat McAfee Show” runs on ESPN’s YouTube properties as well as on ESPN+. McAfee seems able to bypass norms on profanity and subject matter, and appeals to a younger viewer who craves more authenticity in a media personalities and less of the artifice of one-to-many broadcasting that has been the norm of the medium for years.
“There’s a lot of of yelling in sports now,” says Kraft. “That’s what people like to engage with. That’s a very popular model. That’s what fans seem to be looking for, is real aggressive engagement.”
Even so, it doesn’t take a Bob Costas or Dick Schaap to understand that anti-vax rages and on-air rants about ESPN executives that few average viewers recognize don’t make for professional TV. McAfee may care only for the sports fans who tune in to this program, but there are other audiences to think about, including advertisers and investors. Those are two constituencies that ESPN — and Disney — can’t afford to ignore.

Ivory Coast vs. Guinea Bissau live stream: How to watch AFCON 2023 live online, TV channel, prediction, odds
The host elephants kick off africa's main international tournament in abidjan.
Hosts Ivory Coast get the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations underway on Saturday against Guinea Bissau in Abidjan with the Elephants favorites to win at Alassane Ouattara Stadium in the Group A opener. The Djurtus have never progressed from the group stage and will hope to do so for the first time but Jean-Louis Gasset's home side are overwhelming favorites for this one. The Ivorians opted to go through qualifying despite being guaranteed a spot as hosts and finished second, level with Zambia on 13 points with just one loss from six. This is Guinea Bissau's fourth shot at getting out of the group and they are yet to even win a game since their 2017 debut at this level. Baciro Cande's side finished second in their group and stunned Nigeria – there is a 54-place gap between these two coming into kick-off.
Here's our storylines, how you can watch the match and more:

- Date: Saturday, Jan. 13 | Time: 3 p.m. ET
- Location: Stade Alassane Ouattara -- Abidjan, Ivory Coast
- TV: beIN Sports USA | Live stream: Fanatiz
- Odds: Ivory Coast -500; Draw: +450; Guinea Bissau +1400
Ivory Coast: Simon Adingra and Sebastien Haller are doubtful heading into this one while Eric Bailly, Wilfried Zaha and Nicolas Pepe did not make the cut. Franck Kessie, Seko Fofana and Ibrahim Sangare should still be a slid midfield, though, capable of bossing many sides at this level.
Potential Ivory Coast XI: Fofana; Aurier, Diomande, Ndicka, Konan; Kessie, Fofana, Sangare; Krasso, Boga, Bamba.
Guinea Bissau: Cande favors a 4-3-3 but often switches to three at the back against the big guns so expect that here. Mama Balde should lead the line while Nanu is a doubt for the Djurtus and Edgar Ie is also part of the squad after switching international allegiances from Portugal.
Potential Guinea Bissau XI: Mendes; Cande, Mane, Djalo; Mane, Semedo, Cassama, Rodrigues, Quizera; Gano, Balde.
This one should be straightforward enough for the Ivorians as they open the tournament on home soil and need to avoid a shock if they are to not worry about Nigeria in Group A. Guinea Bissau look set to battle with Equatorial Guinea for third place despite having recently shocked the Nigerians themselves. Pick: Ivory Coast 2, Guinea Bissau 0.

How to watch Buffalo Bills vs Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's AFC wild-card game
ORCHARD PARK - The last time the Buffalo Bills played a home playoff game at Highmark Stadium, the only thing more miserable than the weather was the final score.
Last January in the divisional round against the Cincinnati Bengals, a steady snow fell all afternoon and the Bengals were far better-equipped to handle the elements than the Bills and the result was a resounding, season-killing 27-10 loss for Buffalo .
Sunday afternoon, if the weather forecast holds, it’s going to be another cold, snowy, windy afternoon in Orchard Park when the Bills host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a wild-card game.

The prevalent theory is that the Bills will typically have an advantage in snowy weather, but that narrative is false based on how reliant they are on throwing the ball. Snow and wind makes that much more difficult. Plus, there won’t be any weather advantage against the Steelers who have plenty of experience playing in cold, sometimes snowy conditions.
Against the Bengals, Josh Allen completed 25 of 42 passes for 264 yards but also had an interception and led the Bills on just one touchdown drive, one that he capped with a one-yard QB sneak.
“We just got to be sound schematically and within our fundamentals,” Allen said regarding playing in inclement weather. “The wind may move the ball a little bit. Again, having the experience that I do in the stadium and knowing wind patterns, what we will expect them to be at least. Just having a good sense of that and again, just finding ways to get our playmakers the ball on the outside.
“Typically, it’s going to be, with weather like this, a game that both teams are going to run the ball and it’s going to be very possession-limited so we got to make these possessions count.”
Here’s the broadcast and betting information for Bills vs. Steelers:
