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?"
