Barstool Heartland: McAfee’s media empire
The headquarters of Barstool Heartland, Pat McAfee’s offshoot of Barstool Sports, will be a 10,000-square-foot studio and “will have a multimedia center, radio studio, editing rooms and an entertainment area. There will also be a basketball court and golf simulator in the open-concept loft-style space with 30-foot-high ceilings and skylights.” McAfee said Barstool Heartland will create podcasts, videos, blogs, movies “and any other form of entertainment you can think of.”
“Our goal is to attract the best talent not just in Indianapolis, but from across the country to come and work with us,” McAfee said. “We needed to create a space that encouraged the highest level of creativity.”
