Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan Featured on Premiere Episode
After recently establishing his own coffee and bourbon brands, Eric LeGrand is now stepping to the other side of the microphone to officially launch his own podcast entitled “A Cup of bELieve.” Presented by the Teachers Insurance Plan of New Jersey and produced by Malka Sports, the podcast features LeGrand speaking to athletes, entertainers and other notable individuals as they share stories of trials, perseverance and success.
“I am extremely excited to start a new endeavor where people will get to see more of who I am,” said LeGrand. “Starting a podcast gives me the platform to dive into stories of some inspirational people in my life, while opening up and being vulnerable myself. My goal with this podcast is to give our viewers and listeners another reason to bELieve.”
The premiere episode of A Cup of bELieve Podcast is now live, featuring former New York Giants Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan. Since stepping away from the game of football after the Giants defeated the previously unbeaten New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, Strahan has become one of the most recognized media personalities on television. The Giants Ring of Honor member currently serves as a co-anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America and features on the desk for FOX NFL Sunday. Additionally, the former co-host of Live! with Kelly and Michael and Daytime Emmy award winner has even stepped into the game show space as the host of Pyramid.
The first season of A Cup of bELieve Podcast will feature six episodes, with shows being released every other Thursday at 5 PM ET. Coming up next, LeGrand will speak with award-winning actor Bryan Cranston, which will be followed by episodes featuring Premier Lacrosse League co-founder Paul Rabil, two-time FIFA Player of the Year Carli Lloyd, and Super Bowl Champion and Pivot Podcast host Ryan Clark. The first season of the podcast will then conclude with an interview of legendary pro wrestler and WWE Chief Content Officer, Triple H.
A Cup of bELieve Podcast is available in video format on YouTube, and the audio version is available on all major audio platforms. The presenting sponsor of A Cup of bELieve Podcast is the Teachers Insurance Plan of New Jersey, and a special highlight in each episode surrounds a question by LeGrand where guests share a story about a teacher or mentor who positively impacted their lives.
In October 2010, LeGrand sustained a spinal cord injury at his C3 and C4 vertebrae while playing football for Rutgers University. Since that life-altering incident occurred, he has become a worldwide source of inspiration whose message of positivity has influenced a countless number of people throughout the world. Additionally, LeGrand has developed an incredible business and professional acumen, becoming an established entrepreneur, motivational speaker, sports analyst, philanthropist and author.
On the charitable side, his philanthropic organization Team LeGrand has raised nearly two million dollars for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. Additionally, the Rutgers graduate was recognized by Sports Illustrated with its 2011 Best Moment Award, and he was also presented with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the 2012 ESPY Awards. Further, he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2017, receiving the Warrior Award.
