In case you didn't already know, my name is Danny Picard. I am from South Boston. And my journey in the sports media industry is a difficult one to describe.
Here is where you can find most of my recent work: podcasts, livestreams, video highlights, columns, blogs, and more.
I graduated from UMass Amherst with a Journalism degree in 2007. Since, I've worked at The Boston Globe, Comcast SportsNet New England (now known as NBC Sports Boston), NBC Sports Radio, and WEEI, just to name a few.
I'm currently a sports columnist for The Boston Metro, and podcast host of "The Danny Picard Show." I also host a weekly livestream called "dPs LIVE" and a gaming series called "PIC-up YA STICKS." And I co-host a weekly pro wrestling podcast called "TAKE A BUMP."
On top of all that, I also help manage a local neighborhood newspaper called "South Boston Today." Needless to say, I have a lot going on.
You might know me for breaking news on ROger Clemens' return to baseball in 2006 when I was a College reporter for The Massachusetts Daily Collegian. Perhaps you know me for breaking news on the Houston Astros getting caught Spying on the Boston Red Sox in the 2018 ALCS. or you might've seen me in the hit youtube street hockey documentary that I wrote/directeD, "363: The Road to the Southie 3-on-3." It's possible you know me (Judge Me? Hate me?) for my boston accent -- it seems to be a fairly popular google search. Or maybe you don't know me at all.
For years, I've proclaimed to be waiting for my "title shot." I guess you could say that's still the case. However, we live in a do-it-yourself media world, and I'm just a content creator attempting to make my own breaks in an industry that certainly hasn't given back the same that I've put in.
