Westwood One Podcast Network launches the first episode of "My World with Jeff Jarrett," the newest addition to the Conrad Thompson family of podcasts focused on professional wrestling. Future episodes will be available each Tuesday and takes listeners on a journey through Jarrett's Hall of Fame career from an in-the ring, main-event professional wrestler to a promoter and company owner.

Co-host Thompson talks with Jarrett, wrestling's self-proclaimed "King of the Mountain," about his family history in the sports entertainment business, which dates to 1946, his personal accomplishments (with more than 80 championships in promotions across the world) and his foray into company ownership with the creation of NWA Total Nonstop Action (now known as Impact Wrestling) and Global Force Wrestling.

"For years I've been asked, 'If I could do a podcast with anyone in wrestling today, who would it be?' And I've always been consistent that one of those names is Jeff Jarrett," said Thompson. "If Jarrett's life was a movie script, nobody would believe it. I can't wait to dive into Jeff's story and hear directly from one of the most accomplished and controversial people to ever be in the wrestling business. My World is a can't-miss podcast."

"The King of the Mountain and the Podfather finally coming together," added Jarrett. "I've been aware of Conrad for quite some time now, and he's obviously a skilled interviewer with great passion for the wrestling business. He not only does his homework but asks the questions the fans really want to know the most."

"Conrad Thompson does it again, delivering another unmissable show with a wrestling superstar," said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Marketing at Cumulus Media and President of Westwood One. "Jeff Jarrett is wrestling royalty and has lived a fascinating life -- our listeners will devour the stories he shares on his new podcast."
