Poquoson in the news...
 
     Former Poquoson wrestling announcer/Daily Press writer Jason "Twinkie" Bryant begins new wrestling media venture
If there’s a media void in the world of wrestling, Jason “Twinkie” Bryant almost surely will fill it. That began in the late 1990s, when, barely out of Poquoson High, he ranked Peninsula-area wrestlers in each weight class for the Daily Press for an Internet creation he named “Mat Talk.”

Upon graduation from Old Dominion University, and a stint as a full-time designer and wrestling writer for the DP, Bryant moved on to work for a number national wrestling publications. Ultimately, he served as a social media director, podcaster and magazine designer for USA Wrestling in Colorado Springs, before family considerations took him to Minnesota.

It is there that Bryant recently began his latest venture, a quickly growing business podcasting wrestling news and features. He has named it Mat Talk, after reacquiring the name, and is filling a void that college sports information departments do not have the time or manpower to fill.

For instance, Bryant is contracted to interview wrestlers, coaches and others at Virginia Tech, Old Dominion and Maryland, then posts the podcast roughly every other Tuesday around noon. He moderates three other podcasts — a national wrestling show, a youth wrestling show and a college coaches show — and is just getting started.

“It’s something no one else is doing, but it is something the niche fan base of these programs really wants,” Bryant said while at the Virginia Duals recently. “I’m pleased with the response and very happy with where this is going.”
