IN THE ROOM in its current form launched in April 2009 as PWI Weekly, a part of the Who’s Slamming Who network. Brady Hicks (Pro Wrestling Illustrated Contributing Writer) joined the program a few weeks in, taking over for his PWI colleague Frank Krewda.
In 2010, the show was renamed IN THE ROOM and made the flagship program of the new TBH Network on thebradyhicks.com after the success of interviews with stars such as AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, and Austin Aries that same year.
In 2011, Brady was added as a co-host on the VOC Wrestling Nation, as heard on WNJC 1360 AM in Philadelphia, and sat in that capacity for about a year prior to its own jump to the podcast realm.
In 2014, Brady’s TBH Network merged with the VOC Nation Radio Network in a 50-50 partnership, and the rest was history!
While Brady’s crew on IN THE ROOM has changed considerably over the years, the team’s mantra has always remained the same: to provide great discussions about wrestling and life, fantastic banter, and the hard-hitting interviews for which Brady would become known.
IN THE ROOM’s cast members have included WCW performer Stro Maestro (2015-Present); longtime wrestling friends Kathie Fitz (2013-Present) and Derrick McDonald (2012-Present); Ray Bogusz (2013-15); his college friends DJ (2009-10, 2013-14) and Matt Grimm (2016-current); PWI writers Kevin McElvaney (2009-11), Steve Anderson (2018-19), and Mike Bessler (2012-13); Anthony Sarlo (2013-14); and Young John (2011)!
