St. George News Sports releases new podcast with focus on local athletics

ST. GEORGE — St. George News sports is proud to announce its newest venture, a local sports podcast. The show can be found wherever you listen to podcasts, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher and more.

On the St. George News Sports Podcast, hosts Ryne Williams and Mark Musgrave will fill you in on all of the latest and greatest of the sports world from around Southern Utah. A new podcast will be released every Tuesday, and topics like Region 9 sports, Dixie State University and Southern Utah University athletics, and even some professional sports will be discussed.

While keying in on those topics, the podcasts will also have interviews with some of the top athletes and coaches in the area.

“We are really excited to try and expand our sports department and give people a new way to enjoy the content we are putting out,” Williams said. “We hope that the podcast will spotlight local coaches, players and teams in a different and engaging way. With the Raiders coming to Las Vegas this year, we are also looking forward to expanding and talking about professional football and the NFL in the near future.”
