Two entities will launch a vertical channel within the Fire Pit Collective
STAMFORD, Connecticut (July 24, 2021) – The Caddie Network and the recently-launched Fire Pit Collective have announced a content partnership to bring golf and sports fans deep into the world of professional and amateur caddies.
The Caddie Network (www.thecaddienetwork.com) launched in 2018 with the goal of providing golf and sports fans an insider’s viewpoint utilizing the expertise of caddies, the game’s greatest untapped source.
It will partner with Fire Pit Collective and its collection of some of the best journalist in the business to go in-depth to explore the unique personalities of those who have carried the bag for some of golf’s biggest name, past and present.
The Fire Pit Collective (www.firepitcollective.com) is a new digital platform headed by former Golf Channel personality Matt Ginella and award-winning golf writer and author, Alan Shipnuck, who are committed to storytelling and authenticity that become a must watch, read and listen.
The partnership between TCN and The Fire Pit Collective will allow fans to get closer to the game with never-before-told, behind-the-scenes stories that can be consumed through podcasts, longform written pieces and video docuseries.
“We have been looking for the right editorial partner to take advantage of the enormous vault of content that comes from more than 200 professional caddies dating back to 1972. With Matt, Alan and team, we believe they will unlock some of golf’s truly memorable storylines that will engage fans worldwide” said Caddie Network Co-Founder, John von Stade.
Ginella commented: “It’s always easy to be in on caddies. The selfless givers who are dedicated to their players and their craft are also treasure troves of stories. To be joining forces with The Caddie Network is an easy decision and makes sense for everyone involved.”
