And while more and more people are turning to these platforms to share their messages, it’s also getting harder and harder to cut through the sheer volume of content on offer and be heard.

That’s why securing compelling talent to interview on your podcast, video series or blog is so important.

That’s exactly what the hosts of netball podcast The Goal Circle did. They used Pickstar to book netball stars Natalie Medhurst, Kate Shimmin and Abbey McCulloch to appear on their show across three episodes. The women brought star power to the series, helped build listener numbers, and provided expert insight into the Suncorp Super Netball competition.

Podcast series We Are The World We Create, presented by iconic whiskey brand Glenmorangie, also used Pickstar to book talent for their episodes.

The series features incredible personalities pushing the boundaries in their respective fields, and with that in mind presenters were able to use Pickstar to book former Wallaby Ben Darwin, media personality Tiffany Cherry and former AFL player, high performance coach and Pickstar founder James Begley.

Sports stars are often a perfect fit for this type of content, because they not only bring a ready-made fan base, they have great insight into leadership, teamwork, resilience and high performance as well. These themes will not only benefit your listeners, they’ll also reflect positively on your brand.

Sports stars can also share uplifting or funny stories from their careers and have often received media training, which means they are good communicators and can keep the interview flowing with ease.

A lot of talent enjoy sharing their stories, so securing the right sports star for your show might not cost as much as you think.
