WACO, Tex. (March 23, 2020)—SicEm365.com, the leading Baylor sports, recruiting, and fan engagement site, is launching the next level of coverage for members and fans alike with SicEm365 Radio. Leveraging the power of Internet radio and the SicEm365.com website, this new dimension of their fan-favorite coverage is scheduled to launch April 6, 2020.

To launch SicEm365 Radio, the SicEm365 ownership team of Ashley Hodge, Brian Ethridge and Colt Barber have hired David Smoak, Craig Smoak, and Paul Catalina, formerly of ESPN 1660 Central Texas, to anchor the live programming

“We know times are uncertain right now, but what we are certain of at SicEm365, is that we are going to provide Baylor fans and high school football fans with the best coverage anywhere of games, recruiting, coaches, and more,” said SicEm365.com co-owner Brian Ethridge. “There will be no better place than SicEm365.com and SicEm365 Radio to get your Baylor and high school sports information, and we couldn’t be more excited to have David, Craig, and Paul joining the team.”

SicEm365 Radio will bring in a new, enhanced era of coverage for fans in Central Texas and around the country, powered by the SicEm365.com platform. “When I arrived in Waco in 2010, I thought I wouldn’t be around more than a year. But Waco has become my home, and I’m thrilled that it will remain my home. With SicEm365 Radio, I’ll be able to bring the same passion, enthusiasm and professionalism to SicEm365.com as I have through my 38-year career covering sports at all levels. I can’t wait to continue our thorough coverage of Baylor Athletics, but also high school programs as well,” said David Smoak.

Like SicEm365.com’s message boards and published content, SicEm365 Radio will have content that is both free for all access and premium, subscription-only content. “We have built up a fan community that is passionate about Baylor sports as well as recruiting and high school sports all over Texas. From a virtual board where fans can come together, to weekly recruiting chats, to our first-to-know Bear Signal text notifications, we have brought Baylor fans what they want to see as we’ve cheered the Bears to new heights the last several years,” said Colt Barber, co-owner and Editor in Chief of SicEm365.com. “With the addition of David, Craig, and Paul, we are now able to bring our community the next level of coverage—radio.”

The Smoaks and Catalina are well-known around Central Texas and in high school football circles across the state and will be an invaluable addition to the SicEm365 team following their departure from the traditional sports radio format.

“I’m super excited to join SicEm365. When one door closes, another opens. I know we all look forward to taking the site to another level. I can’t wait to get started,” said Paul Catalina.

Founded in 2016, SicEm365.com has rapidly grown to be the largest Baylor sports and recruiting site on the Internet. With more than 27,000 people in the message board community, the site provides coverage of all sports at Baylor, recruiting across Texas and beyond, and hosts a tailgate at Brazos Parking for each home football game.

“I’ve seen first-hand what an incredible community SicEm365 has grown into the last few years,” said Craig Smoak, who started providing content for the site as a contributor in 2018. “I’m ecstatic to be a full-time member of the team and look forward to reaching new heights with what this site can become and provide to fans.”

The radio show will be streamed live directly on SicEm365. In addition, the show will be available live on multiple social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

To become a part of the SicEm365.com community, visit www.sicem365.com. Message boards and stories are available for all fans. Subscribers have access to a premium message board, content, and additional features. SicEm365 can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Adding David and Paul to what Craig was already providing will be a huge asset to the site.

He will do HS segments across all the areas he has covered in the past and will work into new regions as well.

1660's loss is sicem365's massive gain. Sorry, didn't read the whole article. Is the streaming radio only available to premium subscribers?

I was going crazy thinking I would not be able to hear Smoaky, Craig and Paul's weekly interviews with my Baylor Bear's staff. Hallelujah, I'm so pumped I want to run down the street and shake everybody's hand that I see--hell, I'd hug them too. (If I could, of course). Thank you Sicem365, you are awesome(r).

Soo, Do I understand this correctly?
This new service will be a Streaming Only service and NO ability to hear it on my car radio?

If you have a smart phone & bluetooth, it should be possible to listen to podcasts through your car's sound system.

Taking what was free radio information and insight, and making people pay for it now? So, basically, subscription-based podcasts right?

Not my take. Radio is free. Additional premium content will be paid only, similar to what we have now.

This is gonna be good.

No. Radio show is free. David, Craig, and Paul will now handle other pieces for themselves and us under our umbrella. If David does an exclusive interview for the premium side it will be there. If it is for all, it will be there. Radio stays the same.

Are we ever going to hear what went down with ESPN 1660? I love a good, dramatic backstory.

WOW! They were great. I cannot imagine why ESPN would not keep them. This is a win/win situation for all of us: for Baylor fans in general & for them.
