Dynasty Athlete Representation Sports Agents

Darren Heitner Interview With News Talk 800

At around 5 p.m. yesterday, I got a call from one of Dynasty‘s baseball agents, Bryan Swalley, asking me to be a guest on a West Virginia based sports radio show.  The interview was to be conducted an hour from receiving the notice.  Next time, give me some advance notice, Swalls!  Anyway, I am happy that I went on the show, because I was able to engage in a great conversation with the show’s host, Paul Swann.  Swann is the Program Director/Sports Director for News Talk 800 WVHU 1600 WZZW and Fox Sports 1230 WIRO & 1420 WTCR.  The interview was live on all those stations.  If you missed it (you would have only known about it if you were following me on Twitter), no need to worry.  The clip is available in its entirety, below.

Listened to the show. Wanted to call in and ask your thoughts on Oliver v. NCAA. I’m writing and article on it and came across some of your blog posts about it. Good to hear some good sports law talk on West Virginia radio.
