John Flynn

John Flynn is a contributor at Rising Apple since April 2022 and is the host of the weekly Hooked on Sports podcast. A graduate of King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., he contributed to most of its media outlets, such as its paper "The Crown," the WRKC 88.5 FM radio station as program director and talk show host, and in the closed-circuit KC-TV TV studio. On Twitter, you'll find him tweeting about sports games and news, particularly about the New York Mets and the New York Giants, election stuff, and live-tweeting his favorite TV show, "The Bachelor" and other franchise-related shows. So he must ask, "Will you accept my writing?"

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage. From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
