BOXTOROW as it is known airs on radio stations across the country including in the Triangle on WAUG-AM 750 Saturdays at 11 a.m. and on The Buzz 620-AM/99.3-FM/96.5-FM/99.9 HD2 also on Saturdays at 7 a.m. The show also airs in North Carolina in Greensboro/Triad, Elizabeth City/Northeastern, NC as well as on SiriusXM.

All of the above mentioned coaches have all appeared as guests on the show over the almost 12 years BOXTOROW has been on the air.


A nationally renowned media company, the BOXTOROW name derived from the national sports talk show FROM THE PRESS BOX TO PRESS ROW which currently airs on radio stations all across the country as well as on Satellite Radio on SiriusXM. FROM THE PRESS BOX TO PRESS ROW began airing on August 20, 2005 on just five radio stations. While the show gives listeners a personal and intimate perspective through interviews with some of the top sports, entertainment and sometimes political figures of the day, and through talking about some of the hot button topics of the day, at the heart of BOXTOROW is its coverage of HBCU sports.
