Hi there! I'm Eddie Kilroy, and I'm the newest member of the WLIO sports team. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I've had a passion for sports since I could first pick up a baseball bat.Now, I'm living the dream, doing what I love to do!
I graduated in May of 2012 with a Bachelors in Communications from Kent State University. I was a sports reporter and anchor at our college television station, TV2 KSU, where for four years I covered the Mid-American Conference and Northeast Ohio high school sports. I was also the sports director for our college radio station, Black Squirrel Radio, where I was the play-by-play broadcaster for the Golden Flashes football and basketball programs. On top of that, I freelanced for FOX Sports Radio as a college correspondent and worked as a reporter for SportsInk.com, a web site dedicated to covering high school athletics in the greater Akron area.
Between college and WLIO, I worked as a producer for Cleveland's number one sports talk radio station, 92.3 The Fan WKRK-FM. As the youngest staff member of the programming department, I was responsible for producing and board-operating weekend talk show programming.
Aside from being behind the camera or microphone, I also love being out in the community and helping others. As an Eagle Scout from Troop 513, and a division II college football recruit from Brunswick, Ohio, I learned early on that family, hard work, and teamwork are vital to a community's success. That's why I'll give you a 110% effort when covering the sports you care about!
