Billy Derrick, Founder/Host

Chad Withrow, radio host at 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, praised the young journalist, “Billy had the passion and foresight to start his own podcast at the age of 12, and had the talent to turn that podcast into a success. I’m confident that we are all witnessing the start of a productive career in sports media.”
