Kevin Durant, Rich Kleiman to Launch New Video Series on Sports Media Network Boardroom

Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman are tapping back into their Thirty Five Ventures-backed platform Boardroom to launch a new stream of content.

According to Variety, in addition to relaunching the platform’s website, the duo is also announcing a slate of new programming with an upcoming video series titled “More Explanation Needed,” hosted by Pierce Simpson.

The new show will offer Simpson’s perspective on all things sports, music, and culture, while featuring a lineup of celebrity guests and business leaders for short interviews.

Additionally, “Risk-Reward” — a sports, business, and finance interview series hosted by sports reporter Ros Gold-Onwude — will also be premiering on Boardroom’s platform later this month.

Boardroom — which brings the best of the sports business directly to fans — is a media network that showcases how athletes, tech moguls, and sports executives are moving the sports world, and culture itself, forward.

The network was launched by Durant and Kleiman’s Thirty Five Ventures as a means to examine the realms of sports, business, lifestyle and culture that we haven’t yet seen before.

“Over the course of the last year, as our team quickly adjusted to working remotely and doubled down on our focus for Boardroom, we were able to launch two podcasts, triple our newsletter subscribers, and launch a Boardroom University program where we can engage with college students across the country,” Kleiman told Variety. “Coming into 2021, we’re excited that we have four new shows coming out with incredible talent that we know our fans will love, a new vertical Boardroom Breakers covering the trading card and collectible industry, and much more unfolding over the coming weeks.”

Boardroom is also poised to roll out Boardroom Breakers — a community about trading cards– and Boardroom University — a series of conversations between Kleiman and executives that are hosted by colleges and universities, continuing its work with an ambassador program for students in sports business programs.
