Pittsburgh Sports Now is pleased to announce the launch of “Just Buckets,” the latest addition to PSN’s ever-growing podcast collection.
“Just Buckets,” co-hosted by Pitt basketball star Jamarius Burton and Pittsburgh Sports Now writer George Michalowski, is a first-of-its-kind show that will give fans a unique point of view before and during the Pitt basketball season. The NIL-compliant show will be distributed across Pittsburgh Sports Now’s multiple social media platforms, with the full shows posted on Pittsburgh Sports Live’s YouTube Channel.
“This podcast is very exciting because in my own free time, I watch podcasts often and I listen to famous people and people in my profession who have done what I aspire to do,” Burton said. “I feel like there is a lot of information out there in podcasts. To be able to host one and provide my knowledge and my experiences for people to see and become inspired by, it’s a beautiful thing. I’ve been inspired by podcasts that I have listened to, and I just feel like it allows me to showcase skills. Communication skills, broadcast skills, as well as being able to connect with all of my guests and bring awareness to issues and things that I deem important in the world that need to be discussed.”
Burton is returning for his second season at Pitt after spending time at both Wichita State and Texas Tech earlier in his career. Last season for the Panthers, the 6-foot-4 guard averaged over 12 points and three rebounds per game. In December, Burton hit a game-winning shot over St. John’s to take home the victory at Madison Square Garden in one of Pitt’s top moments of the season. Burton is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Marketing after graduating from Pitt in 2022 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications.
“For me, NIL just allows me to showcase my skills,” Burton added. “I am not really in it for the money, but just for an opportunity. With our podcast and many new deals in the future, it is nothing but an opportunity to showcase my skills and to gain some that will hopefully prepare me for the future.”
