Kevin Sparks’ broadcast debut a hit

Two weeks ago, radio-internet enthusiasts throughout the country were given an outlet to laugh out loud, exchange banter, and indulge in off-the-hook raucous sports dialogue. They were introduced to the newest brand of talk-radio at ntnradio.com with “The Sports Syndicate,” starring Colonial Beach native and former sports star, Kevin “Sully” Sparks, and Warrenton, native, basketball coach, Marcus “Mook” Washington. It’s sports talk with a jolt of off the hook humor.


From the moment the show airs on National Talk-Radio Network (ntnradio.com/shows/sports/sports-syndicate/) listeners are taken on a sports journey through the eyes of Sully & Mook. Throughout the experience, listeners will be entertained with interviews, commentary and a humorous perspective on topics that range from baseball to the Superbowl. Nothing related to sports is taboo.

“We want our listeners to feel like we’re all talking in a living room together, having fun, and talking sports,” Washington said. “We talk about everything from big time collegiate sports to boxing, hockey or basketball. If it’s a sport, we’re going to talk about it.”

Like Washington, Sparks has had the sports bugs throughout his life. During his high school years as a Drifter center and nose guard, he earned the honor of All-Conference, while leading his team as their captain during his sophomore, junior and senior year. He continued his football career at Bridgewater University as a center during his freshman and sophomore years.

Sparks returned to his high school alma mater in 2007, and 2008 to coach the offensive line. His coaching expertise helped the Drifters become Region-A Champions, and rule the Tidewater District as champions twice.

Now a central figure on The Sports Syndicate, Sparks is thrilled to return to the world of sports with his co-host as a broadcast personality. “What we do on the show is fun, because we both have a unique personality,” Sparks said. “We’re not another boring talk show, because we keep the topics flowing with fun, and light with jokes, as we interact with the audience.”

After Monday’s debut, that featured San Diego Sports Junkie broadcaster Booker P, the feedback from the show’s twitter account quadrupled. In fact, the Chantilly-based show featured former University of Tennessee, and Tampa Bay Buccaneer gridiron standout, Steven White. On the following Monday, the show will feature a special Superbowl report from Bleacher Report NFL lead journalist, Matt Miller, and starting Kansas City Chief tackle, Brandon Albert.

The Sports Syndicate is broadcast Mondays from 8–10 p.m. Other broadcasts featured on ntnradio.com include: Dawghouse Radio, Monday, from noon to 1 p.m.; No Philter, Monday, 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.; BT Sports, Tuesday, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.; The Hater Nation, Wednesday, 9 p.m. – 11 p.m.; Conservatively Speaking, Friday, 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.

If you’re seeking to get your sports fix on a Monday evening, after a long day at work, the Sports Syndicate is guaranteed to revitalize your appetite for factual, on-target analysis. Mook and Sully will be waiting to take your calls.
