We go back stage with the Milwaukee Bucks and talk to Johnny Watson, Melanie Ricks and Ryan Kiser about their show.

We are on-site with the Milwaukee Bucks for a special edition of the Gameops.com Podcast. Bucks Director of Live Programming and Entertainment Johnny Watson, along with Melanie Ricks and Ryan Kiser from the Bucks Entertainment Staff.

Johnny talks about his primary role, developing talent within the organization, their philosophy on keeping things fresh, rehearsal schedules, hot time outs, post-game celebrations and more.

Melanie explains the dance team schedule and use, how they are updating their look to match the times, her in-game hosting work, and how she builds special theme nights. Ryan Kiser shares insights from Team Bango.

The Brat-zooka is my other favorite thing. It’s unique and it fits Milwaukee.
