“I am consistently impressed by the incredible capability and ingenuity of student-athletes! It’s exciting to see this bright community of young athlete-preneurs emerge and promising to learn about the wide variety of creativity and ambition in the NIL space.” -Chloe V. Mitchell
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (PRWEB) May 12, 2022
PlayBooked, a web platform/mobile app designed to help collegiate athletes monetize their years in college sports, launches the PlayBooked Podcast, a new digital radio show on iHeart Radio’s new College Athletes Network.
The PlayBooked Podcast is hosted and edited by Chloe V. Mitchell, 20, a collegiate volleyball player and businesswoman. A nationally renowned TikTok influencer with 2.7 million followers, Chloe made national headlines and sports history in 2020 when she became the first collegiate athlete to legally monetize her name, image, and likeness (NIL). After pioneering the trail for others, she partnered with her father—a former football player at the University of Michigan—and co-founded the PlayBooked App to help student-athletes do the same, but with ease.
Chloe has combed the collegiate landscape to find fellow athlete-preneurs with whom she can connect, collaborate, champion, and conquer the challenges they all experience while navigating the new NIL landscape. In each episode, she dives into each of her guests' experiences so she can provide her listeners with a real-life tactical playbook for NIL success.
“I am consistently impressed by the incredible capability and ingenuity of student-athletes!" Mitchell says of her podcast guests. “It’s exciting to see this bright community of young athlete-preneurs emerge and promising to learn about the wide variety of creativity and ambition in the NIL space.”
The PlayBooked Podcast will roll out weekly episodes for the next ten weeks. The starting guest line-up includes; Princeton soccer player Lexi Hill, Auburn gymnast Derrian Gobourne, Stanford track teammates Dorian James and James Stevens, Duke football player J’Marick Woods, and Duke track athlete Emily Cole.

“My takeaway after interviewing so many talented college athletes, is that there is no one-size-fits-all template for how to leverage your NIL and make money as a student-athlete,” shares Mitchell, who is an admitted outlier in the space. “It’s about, #1, finding trusted partners like the PlayBooked app to walk you through it and, #2, deciding how much time and effort you can and will invest. There are many ways to do that, for athletes of all levels, and listeners can be a fly on the wall as my show guests share details about their own avenues of revenue and creativity.”
