WCVO/Columbus (The River) has launched season 4 of “The Rivalry” Podcast. The River afternoon Co-Host Josh (“Jace”) Evans and Social Media Director Josh Pollock host a weekly podcast focused on the Ohio State-Michigan college football rivalry.

We believe this podcast is a perfect example of thinking outside the box and reaching an audience who might otherwise never listen to the station. Our hope is to not only grow the podcast for its own sake, but to grow our station audience as a whole.” Evans also quipped that “It makes being a Wolverine fan in Buckeye country more bearable.”
