One of the most interesting personalities you can ever come across in the sports podcasting industry, even though it is gaining ground recently is, Dan Katz. Who is Dan Katz’s wife, many have asked?
Hold on! There are so many Dan Katz on the internet, but thank goodness, there is a distinction with the one we are talking about and that is his very popular nick, “Big Cat”. Let us introduce you to Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz.
In this article, we would be telling you all you need to know about Dan Katz’s wife, his career as a podcaster, his net worth, and all his eccentricities.
If you are familiar with the Barstool name, then you must have come across Katz. The satires master started as a writer for Barstool when it was still ‘toddling’ as just a sports journal.
He became one of the most important content creators for the sports outlet. We do not know so much about his upbringing, but we know he has so much passion for sports, hence, his popularity amongst sports fans who listen to his podcast.
Early Life of Dan Katz
Daniel Katz was born on the 30th January 1985 in Chicago, Illinois USA, so that puts him at 36 years. We have no idea who his parents are, or his siblings, all we have on the charming man is his catastrophic rise to fame. For the records, Katz is purely American.
Professional Career of Dan Katz
Katz started his career as a podcast host. He and PFT commenter (Eric Sollenberger) are co-hosts of the popular Pardon My Take (PMT) widely regarded as one of the most satirical podcasts about sports in the United States of America.
With this reputation, you expect that the audience of the podcast should be in their thousands. Surprise, surprise, PMT gets over 10 million listeners in a week, which means for each episode, there is a guarantee of 1.5 million listeners.
Did we hear you say massive? That’s right. However, not only do they talk about sports, but they also hold discussions on pop culture and various entertainment platforms. Looks like, there is diversification if you ask us.
The success of the show did not go unnoticed as Dan Katz and his co-host PFT commenter were listed as the #1 sports media talents under the age of 40. Yet another win for the vibrant podcasters.
Aside from co-hosting the PMT podcast, Katz has appeared on several TV sports shows too. He has appeared on The Russilo Show, Pro Football Talk Live, ABC News Nightlife, TV series SportsCenter, Men in Blazer, The Dan Patrick Show, and many others.
Oh, he has also appeared on ESPN, even though it was for just a short time. Here is what happened: ESPN gave the license for the Pardon My Take podcast to be aired, but ESPN’s female staff wasn’t having any of it.
Why? Because of the antecedents of the show’s misogynistic tendencies, so, the show got canceled after just one episode. Life must go on, innit?
Dan Katz’s New Podcast Show
Katz after seeing the success of the PMT decided to collaborate with a professional Baseball player, Alex ‘A-rod’ Rodriguez, to produce a podcast show, named The Corps in December 2018.
In the first season, the show featured several stars including the late Kobe Bryant, Michael Rubin, Barry Sternlicht, Barbara Corcoran, and several other stars.
Is ‘Big Cat’ Married?
Phew! Dan Katz can be very loud about his professional life, but his personal life, lips sealed. To be frank, he is quite consistent with his private life off social media. This is why it is very hard to know if there was ever a Dan Katz’s wife. He is not married but he is in a happy relationship with his girlfriend.
Who is Dan Katz’s Wife?
So, we know he doesn’t have a wife. But, he sure does have a girlfriend. Since we know he has a girlfriend, we, again, for the umpteenth time do not know if they are married.
On March 26, 2019, for the first time in Katz’s life, or perhaps for the first time he got famous, he announced on Twitter that he would be having a child. With whom? We only know the name of the lucky lady is Nichole.
How did we know about his new baby, well, he published an article on Barstool with the caption: “I’m Going To Be A Dad This Summer (On Purpose)”. This singular announcement drove his fans to want to know who his partner is, but, again, lips sealed from Dan.
Dan Katz Social Media Presence
Dan has a lot of followers across social media platforms. He is quite active on Twitter where he has more than 900k followers. His Instagram is not left out too, as he has 648k followers.
His Net Worth
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Katz is worth $2 million. According to a trustworthy source, he receives $175,000 every episode he appears in Pardon My Take. This means he has an annual salary of $27.3 million.
Some reports imply that he owns a business franchise that is worth $100 million. In any case, there is no authentication of these claims, just mere rumors. One thing is certain though, he is a wealthy man.
As private as he is, we know there is no Dan Katz wife at the moment, but there is a girlfriend who has a child for him. If they would be taking the relationship to the next level, is what we do not know. But, we hope they do. Dan Katz’s career shows that hard work, passion and resilience are still needed to scale to the top.
