Mike Golic's new venture with DraftKings is officially underway.

On Wednesday, the company shared the name of his all-new show with Jessica Smetana, which will "cover the intersection sports, news and pop culture."

"Today, DraftKings announced its newest originally produced sports-centric show 'Golic and Smetty' featuring [Mike Golic] and [Jessica Smetana] will debut tomorrow," they tweeted.

"'Golic & Smetty' brings you a breakdown of everything in the headlines of sports, pop culture and news from a football player who isn’t sure if it’s a social media app or the sound a clock makes and a woman who had to ask how to dial on a rotary phone," the site says. "Catch Mike Golic and Jessica Smetana every week for their thoughts on everything from football to fashion."

Just over a year ago, Mike Golic left ESPN after rising to fame as one half of "Mike & Mike," dating back to 1998. Now for his second act, he's doing a once-a-week, hour-long video podcast with DraftKings.

A former Notre Dame lineman, Golic's new partner also bleeds green; Smetana graduated with the Golic's daughter, Sydney, from ND a little over five years ago. It's also in the cards that Mike Jr., eventually joins the DraftKings family after exiting from ESPN himself.

The company continues to grow its media outreach.
