We came at this from a woman’s perspective and soon realized that the content we created filled a void for both men and women. We want to bring both sexes together to enjoy sports with the same passion for the game that Robin and I enjoy. We understand that you can be a girl’s girl and one of the guys at that same time – and that’s a lot of fun.

Fantoo, Inc., founded by Carol Doroba and Robin McConaughy, was created as a lifestyle brand for the sports fan. Through its media offerings including the Fantoo Girls Podcast, television content, terrestrial radio and its web site, Fantoo seeks to become a resource for the sports fan by delivering entertainment, opinion and education in a format with which all fans, beginners to face-painters, men and women, will connect.
“As sports fans, we felt there was a need for an alternative to the current sports programming available, which tends to be either very stat-oriented, or too focused on the negative stories that swirl around the sports world. We feel that people become more avid sports fans when they have a reason to care about the athletes and the game. Our aim is to provide a perspective to the sports fan that is truly fresh, interesting and fun while always staying focused on keeping the fan up-to-date on the sports issues of the day,” said Robin McConaughy, General Manager of Fantoo, Inc.
Fantoo also carries a unique apparel line designed exclusively for women who desire a higher-end alternative to the standard sports apparel available. Fantoo apparel is sold on the company’s website, http://www.fantoo.com, as well as at select boutiques and sporting apparel stores nationwide. Prices start at $32.
Carol Doroba, Head Coach of Fantoo, Inc. added, “We came at this from a woman’s perspective and soon realized that the content we created filled a void for both men and women. We want to bring both sexes together to enjoy sports with the same passion for the game that Robin and I enjoy. We understand that you can be a girl’s girl and one of the guys at that same time – and that’s a lot of fun.”
