I feel we are a natural fit as a partner. With their team, audience and content machine and my creative ideas & premium content, we feel we're going to be able to make a big splash in the media space”.

Many years later, Tracy's only built on his brand, honing his media skill set and building an empire as an entrepreneur. Together, we're extremely confident we can power enormous growth for Playmaker, Tracy and all of our partner brands."
