“Bad” Brad Berkwitt retired from the US Navy (September 2006) with his 20 years and 28 days of Honorable Service to our country, and was honored in a Retirement Ceremony held in the Pentagon.
During his childhood, he fought as an amateur boxer for three years (80-83) out of North Miami Beach, Florida. He also is the successful Author of the boxing book: Boxing Interviews of a Lifetime. Brad’s passion for boxing which he credits his late Father Alvin Berkwitt, started in 1975, and to this day, is just as strong. In 2004, Berkwitt started Ringside Report “The Heart of Boxing” to bring a different approach to the sport which many sites were not doing.
“Bad” Brad has always had a deep respect for the fighters of the past who didn’t always get the credit they deserved and his goal in 2004 and still to this day, is to ensure all boxers get the respect and credit they deserve. That fact has never been more evident than when you read one of Berkwitt’s hundreds of interviews, over the last 16 years with some of the biggest names in boxing from yesteryear and present day.
On top of his CEO duties, “Bad” Brad appeared as a boxing analyst, from 2000 – 2012, on News Channel 8 Sports Talk TV Show with Host Glenn Harris, that is viewed in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
He also has been a guest on ESPN Radio and various other radio shows throughout the country.
His nickname “Bad” came from fellow Author and Boxing Ring Announcer, Henry “Dis-com-bob-u-lating” Jones in 2000 and has stuck ever since. In Henry’s words, “I gave him that nickname because he always stands up for what he believes in, and the fighters truly respect him for being so positive in all of his interviews.”
In 2013, “Bad” Brad followed in the footsteps of his late father, Alvin, starting an acting career that has already seen a level of success. Brad has worked in film and TV to include, HBO’s VEEP, House of Cards, several shows for the ID Network, industrial videos and live dinner theater. Like all actors, he is looking for that career defining role that puts him on the fast track to Hollywood.
In 2015, “Bad” Brad took his 17 plus years of conducting interviews with some of the biggest names in Boxing and Hollywood, and created The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show which has in a short time, become a “Hit” Web TV Show in the state of Oklahoma and around the world.
Outside of boxing, he is an old time movie and music buff who was probably born in the wrong generation. His love of the classic singers along with the newer ones such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Dame Shirley Bassey, Chuck Brown, Rick James, Al Martino, Dean Martin, and French Diva “The Little Sparrow” Edith Piaf to name just a few, truly do set him back in a time where singers really sang some great standards.
Debbie Edwards eats, sleeps and talks football…. She is the true definition of a “Football Mom”. Her love of football actually started early in her life. As a youngster flipping through channels, fate would stop it on a football game. She beheld a sight that would stick in her mind for years. There was no particular play or opponent, but a running back Edwards would come to know as John Riggins would ignite a passion for football in her that would remain for decades. That Washington Redskins team, along with successive teams that included Darryl Green, Russ Grimm, Art Monk and many others hold a special place in her heart.
Somewhere along the way in these decades of watching football from the sidelines and in the stands, her knowledge grew bigtime. You should hear her on a Sunday yelling plays at the big screen TV or even more vocal at an actual game, which it doesn’t matter if it is at the high school, college or the professional level.
Being a Louisiana Native, her love for all things Louisiana, including the Saints and LSU keep her entertained at this, her most cherished time of the year. Adding to this, she has had the privilege of watching her own little football player blossom into a senior defensive end/fullback at H L Bourgeois in Gray, Louisiana.
Defense schemes and the importance of adhering to blocking assignments on offense have not escaped her. She is combining that knowledge with another love… Writing! Of course, she’s opinionated. And has her favorites. But what she hopes to do is bring her perspective of a game that she loves to everyone who reads her columns on Ringside Report.
In 2015, Edwards took over the filming for The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show on the RSR YouTube Channel.
Grim is a child of the 60’s and no doubt when you meet him with his laid back way, you will see he came from the right generation. A boxing-fitness nut, he has competed in body building contests and then went into boxing. First to stay in shape, then to go on and train fighters. If he is not in the gym, he is working his magic on many websites which he does for a living.
