The IN THE ROOM wrestling podcast first launched as PWI Weekly in 2009, and was part of the Who’s Slamming Who Radio Network. Brady Hicks joined the program just a few weeks in, taking over the hosting duties from his Pro Wrestling Illustrated editor Frank Krewda. DJ, Ray Bogusz, Kevin McElvaney, Young John, Anthony Sarlo, and Jordan Garber joined the show as cast members before giving way to the current crop of cohosts. The show was renamed IN THE ROOM in August 2010, becoming part of The TBH Network. This network merged with the VOC Nation Radio Network in 2014, and absorbed it entirely in 2015.
