Nick Ashooh is a television and sports radio personality in Washington D.C. He’s currently the host of “DC Sports Live” on NBC Sports Washington, as well as host of “Ashooh and Loverro” on 106.7 The Fan
Before DC Sports Live, Nick hosted “Wizards Outsiders” before and after every Wizards game, and has also been a regular contributor with NewsChannel 8 and ABC 7 Sports.
Previous stops include hosting talk shows with ESPN 980, and nationally with Fox Sports Radio. He also spent time with SiriusXM Sports.
This is actually Plan B though, because his childhood dream of playing in the NBA was quickly realized to be impossible.
You know how they say you can do anything? Well that’s actually not true. Not the NBA. Not for Nick.
When an accurate scouting report would say “average height, mediocre shooting ability, below average vertical, and no noteworthy speed”, you know it’s time for Plan B.
So that’s what Nick did. He decided he was better at talking about other people playing sports.
He started off as a programming intern at ESPN 980 while still at George Mason, before becoming an update anchor and fill-in host, as well as the Director of Production for them after graduation.
Nick followed the old saying “be willing to do everything”, and used that to find his way into the sports media business.
Except cleaning toilets. That’s where he drew the line.
