Lisi Partners with JAR of Hope Philanthropy for “Go For The 2 Hosted by Joe Lisi”
New Jersey native Joe Lisi has inked a deal with the Yahoo! Sports Radio Network, bringing his college football expertise to a national platform that will include more than 85 different radio stations throughout the country. The show, entitled Go For The 2 with Host Joe Lisi, has also partnered with JAR of Hope philanthropy to assist the organization in its mission to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
"It is an honor to be associated with a great company like the Yahoo! Sports Radio Network and Gow Media. I look forward to making Go For The 2 the best college football radio show in the country,” Lisi stated. “I am also excited to partner with James Raffone and JAR of Hope. They are a great organization, and we will help bring awareness to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy through our national audience, along with helping to find a cure for Team Jamesy.”
Lisi is a former ABC Sports college football researcher who has been heavily involved in the sport throughout his professional career. Currently, he is a member of both the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and the Maxwell Football Club. He has also been featured on the Yahoo! Sports Radio Network, The Sid Rosenberg Show (640 AM Sports South Florida), Sirius XM and the FNTSY Network. Lisi also owns and operates GoForThe2.com, which provides interviews and expert analysis.
Go For The 2 Hosted by Joe Lisi will begin on Saturday, August 1st, airing as a weekly Saturday show from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM EST. The program will provide listeners with the perfect opportunity to prepare themselves for the upcoming slate of games during the college football season, as well as in-depth analysis when the season concludes. Additionally, the show will be produced on location at Moore’s Tavern in Freehold, New Jersey, and listeners in the area are strongly encouraged to check out the live show in person.
“I am incredibly enthralled to go forward on our joint venture with Go For The 2 on the Yahoo! Sports platform,” said James Raffone, Founder of JAR of Hope. “This is a huge step for the Duchenne community in being part of a national broadcast, especially with someone of great character like Joe Lisi.”
Started by Raffone in 2013 after a diagnosis of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy with his son, Jamesy, JAR of Hope was created to find a cure for the muscle wasting disease that has roughly 300,000 worldwide cases. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy aggressively attacks the human muscular system, and JAR of Hope has a dedicated mission to provide funding for medical needs and outside the box treatment methods. Among the ways that JAR of Hope seeks funds for its mission is through Push-Ups for Dollars, a nationwide cause that sees people of all types do 10 push-ups for a $10 contribution to the foundation.
