Sean Giancola, CEO and Publisher of The New York Post, said in a statement:
“Jalen is an extraordinary talent and we’re very excited to have him join our New York Post family. As an industry veteran and highly regarded influencer, Jalen will bring his experience and perspective on a wide variety of topics to our audience of over 100 million engaged sports, entertainment and style enthusiasts. We are looking forward to delivering entertaining and thoughtful content with his credible and unique voice, and creating engaging integrated opportunities for our advertising partners.”
According to a press release, The Renaissance Man will highlight Rose’s many talents and unique perspective as it relates to sports, entertainment, fashion, education, entrepreneurship, technology, food, healthy living, travel, and more.
Through this multi-platform program, Rose will share his own personal stories and lessons learned throughout his NBA career and more that will speak to current events.
The new partnership will allow Rose to combine his varied interests as he speaks with fellow celebrities, athletes, designers, business leaders, and more for the weekly series.
“The Renaissance Man is about celebrating culture, those who create it and advance it, and I am honored to be given this platform to share my insights and speak with people I admire about topics that matter in today’s world,” said Rose in a press statement. “I appreciate the team at the Post for showing me love, believing in this concept and helping bring it to life.”
The multi-platform content program is set to launch this fall with a print and digital column available weekly. Video content for the platform will also live digitally embedded into The Renaissance Man articles and featured on individual landing pages.
