About Us

Five Reasons Sports Network (Five Reasons Sports Podcasts, Inc.) is a podcast and social media network, founded in spring 2018 in South Florida and initially consisting of more than a dozen free downloadable podcasts featuring more than 50 contributors.

The roster of talent consists of media pros such as Ethan Skolnick, Steve Goldstein, Seth Levit, Simon Clancy, Jason Jackson, Alex Donno, Larry Blustein, Windy Dees, Chris Joseph, Ricardo Montes de Oca, Sha Tabb, Alejandro Villegas and Josh Darrow; former prominent athletes such as O.J. McDuffie and Chris Chambers; new voices Alphonse Sidney, Josh Appel, Bill O’Rourke, Chris Mattox and Andrew Ivins; plus the most passionate and knowledgeable fan-alysts such as Chris Kouffman, Nekias Duncan and Christian Hernandez doing cutting-edge analysis.

We are credentialed with the Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes, Miami Marlins and Florida Panthers, among others.

We have created a menu of intelligent and entertaining content on demand, for commutes, workouts and more.

Every podcast in our network has its own dedicated Twitter feed, revolving around the @5ReasonsSports hub, which alone generates roughly 10 million tweet impressions per month; plus, we have a growing presence on Instagram and Facebook.

Now, with this website, we plan on being a full-service sports content company, eventually expanding beyond South Florida to other markets.
