This year has been the most amazing and rewarding professional year of my life. Just several months ago I was still running a Boston sports website (if that’s what you wanted to call it) and now I am in charge of a national sports platform. I went from building up a relatively well-known Boston sports podcast to going back to zero and watching this platform slowly but surely build as well with the most watched episode of the year coming yesterday. I went from just being on iTunes to being on SoundCloud, Stitcher, Acast, TuneIn Radio, Overcast and Otto Radio. And if that wasn’t enough, this was the most visited year ever in year four of SWN:
While I can continue to sit here and write about accolades, I most importantly feel that you have truly helped me become a better person and broadcaster.
This experience has allowed me to get a scholarship at a college, the position of ‘Podcasting Director’ at a major college newspaper and more next year that I can’t talk about yet – that may involve radio and TV but I can’t talk about it…shhh.
With next year set to be the busiest year of my life, I wanted to take several days to reflect, rest and regroup for 2018. With that said, I will be off starting tomorrow (December 27th) till December 31st when I return with the usual Sunday programming/NFL coverage. I can’t thank everyone enough who has supported me over the four plus years I have been doing this, and can’t wait to announce and see what 2018 has in story. Talk to you Sunday!
