Locked On Announces Chad Ford’s NBA Big Board Podcast

NBA Draft Guru Chad Ford Returns to the Spotlight with Locked On

Ford ends his two-year hiatus with a new draft show on the Locked On Podcast Network

Park City, UT – The Locked On Podcast Network, the nation’s number one network for daily, local sports podcasts makes a blockbuster addition to its NBA lineup with draft expert Chad Ford. Formerly of, Ford brings 25 years of NBA draft knowledge to a new, twice-weekly show titled Chad Ford’s NBA Big Board. Ford describes the podcast as, “smart, informed and giving the passionate NBA draft fans a deeper look into what makes the NBA draft one of the most exciting and puzzling events in pro sports.” The show will be even more than that, with guests from all sides – NBA front office, agents and players – to give listeners a 360-degree view of the draft process.

Locked On founder David Locke says, “Chad Ford is among the most thorough and trusted voices on the NBA draft. His deep roots in draft coverage give him the perspective to not only know the players but also behind the scenes dealings with agents and teams. We are ecstatic to add Chad Ford’s NBA Big Board as our fifth national NBA podcast on the Locked On Podcast Network.”

Ford echoes that excitement of joining Locked On, saying, “I’ve known David Locke for 20 years. I fought the powers that be at ESPN to be on his yearly draft show because I always felt like the conversation would be deep, informed and passionate. David has taken his successful podcast and used his model to create great podcasts for every team in the NBA. I’m thrilled to be one of the first national podcasts to focus entirely on the NBA draft.”

Chad Ford’s NBA Big Board will debut on March 30th and in addition to previewing the upcoming NBA draft, Ford will also take a look back. His podcast will attempt to better understand past drafts by debuting a weekly series of re-drafts where Ford and guests will go back in time and take a second look at what went right and what went wrong in previous drafts over the past 15 years.

The Locked On Podcast Network continues to be the leader in NBA podcasts, offering daily, short-form, podcasts on every NBA team as well as a national lineup that includes Locked On NBA, Locked On Fantasy Basketball, Hollinger & Duncan’s NBA Show, Rejecting The Screen and now Chad Ford’s NBA Big Board.
