Sports... Yep, That's It

Since October of 2019, I've been studying sportscasting at Full Sail University with the goal of hosting my own sports talk radio show. During my sports media career, I developed the skills that are highly coveted in the industry. I also host my own sports talk podcast, The Jacob Valk Show, which is available wherever you listen to podcasts. Be sure to explore this website to learn more about me and to listen to my on-air work.
