South by Southwest 2016
UNINTERRUPTED, the innovative content network spearheaded by Maverick Carter, continues to make its mark on the media and sports landscape, this time by participating in this year’s SXSW Interactive Featured Sessions. This renowned event brings together some of the biggest and most influential figures of our time to discuss some of the most transformative ideas shaping our future. Maverick and several UNINTERRUPTED athletes will join names like Adam Silver (NBA Commissioner), Biz Stone (co-founder, Twitter), Kerry Washington (actress and philanthropist), Mark Cuban (Mavericks owner and billionaire investor), Ken Burns (award-winning filmmaker) and Secretary Anthony Foxx (US Secretary of Transportation) at this year’s event.
Maverick and UNINTERRUPTED athletes Ronda Rousey and Odell Beckham Jr. will join Bleacher Report President, Rory Brown, for a featured sports-themed session, “Direct from the Source: Athletes Unfiltered.” This panel will discuss the importance of player access and the benefits of athletes being able to provide their perspectives so fans can hear it unedited and unfiltered. The conversation will highlight the significance of athletes being able to communicate directly with their fans, while providing never-before-seen content and insight into their lives. UNINTERRUPTED has become the go-to platform for athletes to do just that by giving some of the biggest names in sports a place to go to amplify and share their stories straight from the source.
