Hosted by Dave Duerson
This will be the second consecutive year that VoiceAmerica hosted a live event from PNE. VoiceAmerica is one of three companies that the Player Networking Event has chosen to feature. In attendance will be World Talk Radio President Jeff Spenard, VP of Broadcast Operations Ryan Treasure, VoiceAmerica Sports Channel Director and former Philadelphia Eagle Ray Ellis; along with our featured VoiceAmerica Sports Hosts including: current Chicago Bear Dez Clark (host of Sportsmanlike Conduct), former Baltimore Raven Nick Murphy (host of Murphy’s Law), former Arizona Cardinal Kwamie Lassiter (host of Kwamie Lassiter’s Sports Talk), and former Chicago Bears and Super Bowl Champion Dave Duerson (host of Double Time with Double D). The Player Networking Event (PNE), a sanctioned NFL Super Bowl event, helps active and former NFL players with their transition from football to their business careers. Each year active and former players attend the PNE to network with business executives and corporations. Working collaboratively with the NFL and its member clubs, their goal is to help players explore and identify post-football opportunities that are realistic and meaningful.

“Success Ends Where Satisfaction Begins, So NEVER BE SATISFIED!”
The show will focus upon the NFL and the game, but will dig deeper into what happens in the locker room, in the mind of the player, when they are away from the field, and after the game ends…what’s next? This will not be football 101!
We’ll do in-depth interviews with current players and past greats, and “where are they now” segments, focus upon discussions on “the hot topics” within “the game” at the moment, and we’ll take your live questions. We will not shy away from the tough questions!
We’ll also focus upon positive messages to kids and parents to never be satisfied!
