Fans can watch or listen to Barn Burner, starring veteran radio hosts Dean “Boomer” Molberg and Ryan Pinder, as well as ex-Calgary Flames player Rhett Warrener.

Molberg joins The Nation Network from Rogers Sportsnet, where he hosted Boomer in the Morning, a daily show aimed at the Calgary sports market.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with The Nation Network and work together to take our show to another level,” said Molberg.

Barn Burner’s launch comes alongside another addition to The Nation Network’s hockey-focused podcast line up: Leafs Morning Take.

This will be hosted by former Rogers Sportsnet NHL contributor Nick Alberga and ex-Toronto Maple Leafs player, Jay Rosehill.

Both Barn Burner and Leafs Morning Take will be clipped and distributed across YouTube, TikTok and various other social media platforms.

Molberg added: “Hockey fans consume content differently today, and we are thrilled to have the freedom and flexibility to create things where, when and how we want.”

Ultimately, these new series represent The Nation Network, and by extension, Playmaker’s ongoing commitment to hockey-focused content and digital media more broadly.

In fact, Playmaker stressed how important podcasts are to its content roster, calling them a “key element.”

“Podcasts are quickly becoming a primary segment of overall digital advertising spend, with US podcast advertisement projected to grow more than 31% in 2023,” Playmaker commented.

These shows will also see Playmaker double down on two key Canadian demographics, hockey fans in Calgary and Toronto.
