Despite being a relatively new medium, podcasts have exploded in popularity as a source of entertainment and information. With the tendency to put a tighter focus on subjects and subject matter, the specialized nature and convenience of access gives audiences a virtual
smorgasbord of topics, formats, and options to satisfy their episodic appetites.
Yet even with the competitive nature of the podcasting world, Rochester native Tanner Lee has managed to carve out a niche’ that has enabled him to share his love of sports with an ever-expanding audience. Making time around his full-time job as a Marketing Specialist for the locally based First Federal Savings Bank, Tanner lends his distinct raspy voice to sharing his knowledge and passion to three popular podcasts:
“It inspires me when someone tells me that they love listening to one of my podcasts, or, when someone contacts me seeking my advice or opinion for something sports related.”
The Tan and J-Man Show, in which he covers a variety of sports with co-host Josh Mundt.
The Tan and J-Man Show, co-hosted with partner Josh Mundt, is recorded live every Monday night from 6:30-7:30 p.m. It airs on the ISC Sports Network which can be seen on 9
different TV providers around the state including RTC (channel 122), the ISC Sports Network, Facebook and Twitter pages, the free ISC Sports Network app, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, etc.)
