Leroy Irvin

Growing up in a sports town, Boston, MA, Leroy became interested in sports at a young age. He was always checking stats, listening to the great sports radio talk shows and reading the sport pages. One of his other great passions is music. At the age of 5 years-old he started playing the drums. In 1999, Leroy began his engineering and producing career, working for AXIOM and 24/7 Entertainment. He was living in Atlanta when he heard the sports talk radio show, 2 LIVE STEWS and thought “I could do that!” Leroy moved back to Boston and teamed up with Cerrone Battle to create Playaction Sports Radio.
