The Sports Objective began in March of 2018 with original hosts Dave Richmond and Dave Shepherd. Unfortunately, Dave Shepherd passed away on Father’s Day of 2018! His spirit and passion for sports will always live on. Kyle Barber started as a contributor to the show for all ECU related topics. Bubba Rosenbaum started working on social media and behind-the-scenes things at first in the spring of 2018. In July of 2018, Kyle and Bubba joined the team as permanent co-hosts of the show. So far, it has been a great ride! In August of 2019, Brennan Shapiro became part of the team. He helps with social media content and covering practices for football, basketball, and baseball. Brennan is currently a junior at East Carolina University.
The show primarily focuses on ECU Sports, but also discusses hot topics of sports as well! We appreciate the support that the Pirate Nation and beyond has given the podcast! There will be many great things to come in the near future!
