Brad Senkiw Bio (@BradSenkiw)
Wherever Brad Senkiw goes, winners seem to follow. When he was the Clemson beat reporter at the Anderson Independent Mail, the Clemson football team went 28-2 and went to the national championship game in back-to-back seasons, winning it all in 2016. Senkiw was there.
Before that, the Gamecocks enjoyed their greatest run in football history with three consecutive 11-win seasons. Senkiw was there. When South Carolina won back-to-back national titles at the College World Series earlier this decade, Senkiw was there.
Senkiw has interviewed hundreds of coaches and players throughout the years. He understands the relationship between the media and fans and brings the passion of sports to life through words.
While he grew up reading box scores out of the newspaper, radio is in his blood. Senkiw’s father was a broadcaster who began his career in North Carolina before working in Greenwood and Anderson before his son was born.
A native of the Palmetto State, where he’s lived his entire life, Senkiw has spent the last two years as a weekly guest on Road Rage with Walt Deptula and has filled in as a host on Out of Bounds.
