In addition, the New York Daily News will feature video and audio content produced by RotoExperts’ sister property, FNTSY Sports Network, the world’s first and only television network dedicated 24/7 to fantasy sports.

The new partnership will continue with co-branded podcasts, audio and video productions, written content and crossover of New York Daily News and RotoExperts talent across their digital, print and television platforms.
