LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Omaha Productions today announced that “Cousin Sal” Iacono and Mush Media are partnering with the Omaha Audio Network presented By Caesars Sportsbook.

He’s built a great reputation by delivering fans content in a fun and authentic way,” said Omaha Productions Founder Peyton Manning. “Having the opportunity to team up with him and Jimmy to create original audio and video is an exciting next step as we continue to build Omaha.”
