The Origins of Sports, Inc.

Sports, Inc. started as just the idea of two college freshman talking about sports for an hour once every week. Now it has become the reality for three young men who love sports.

Sports, Inc. was created by RJ Royster and I originally as a radio show for Coastal Carolina University’s WCCU Radio. But, it was so much more than just a hobby for the both of us. It meant something to us. It could be the stepping stone we needed to start our professional careers.

RJ and I went live on the air waves for the first time on February 1st, 2018. Sports, Inc. was a some of the most fun I’ve had in a long time. We were on the air for four months, but all good things must come to an end because in May of 2018, as we were nearing the end of our freshman year of college, we were coming to the end of the Sports, Inc. radio show. But the new chapter of Sports, Inc. had only just begun.

Shortly after May, 2018, RJ and I toyed with the idea of taking the radio show to the internet, but we just did not have the means to turn it into a website as that in itself is a daunting task to some people, let alone two college kids. So, the idea was put aside for later until when or if we wanted to continue Sports, Inc. past college.

Then, in mid-December of 2018, RJ, my friend Connor Pittman, and myself decided to finally turn Sports, Inc. into a website. It was finally happening! We were taking the radio show and bringing it to the internet. Within a few days, the website was set up and ready for the public. Now, here we are, Christmas just days away and we are finally doing what some people can only dream of: writing about a subject that you love and care about so dearly. Sports, Inc. has truly been a dream come true. We can only hope that you enjoy this website half as much as we enjoy creating and managing it.
