The Noontime Sports Podcast was hosted (and produced) by Matt Noonan, who founded NoontimeSports.com in May 2009.

Our show, which concluded in March 2022, was a mix of solo podcasts to interviews and panels about the ever-changing sports world to go with small college football talk (think D-II and D-III, along with some FCS, FBS) and high schools in New England.

We invite you to replay our various podcasts (listed below) from when we made the switch from WordPress to Anchor in July 2020! Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/noontime-sports/support

    Saying Goodbye to the Noontime Sports Podcast

    Saying Goodbye to the Noontime Sports Podcast

    It's time to say goodbye to the Noontime Sports Podcast -- wow, it has been quite the ride!

    We have been podcasting for nearly a decade, as well as produced roughly 200 shows (maybe a few more?) since the calendar flipped from December 31, 2019 to January 1, 2020. 

    Matt Noonan reflects on the journey, what he will remember most, and if it is possible you could hear him on a future show -- don't rule it out! Additionally, Noonan reminds our fans, followers, and listeners that Noontime Sports is not done or ending -- in fact, our attention will now shift to new ideas for the blog (NoontimeSports.com) and social media. 

    Thanks for a fun journey, everyone -- our shows, both old and new will remain so you can re-listen to them as much as you want!
