"As the concept of the show was being conceived back in 2005, we were looking to have Boxtorow air on Satellite Radio," said Donal Ware, founder of DWCommunications, LLC, the rights holder of the show and the show's host. "Thanks to HUR Voices, that day has finally come. I would like to thank H.U.R. Voices, the staff and Jim Watkins for this phenomenal opportunity."

He has also interviewed for Boxtorow rappers/actors Common and Ice Cube, R&B sensation Melanie Fiona, actress Wendy R. Robinson, and gospel recording artist Smokie Norful to name a few.
In addition to sports talk and interviews with sports figures, Boxtorow Lunch with Donal Ware, as the show will be called on H.U.R. Voices, will talk to some of the top entertainers, not only about their craft but about sports as well.
"I am a huge fan of music and entertainment, so I would like to have as guests entertainers and talk sports with them," said Ware. "I want our listeners to get to know them more in depth than what they see on television and to gauge their sports interests."
FROM THE PRESS BOX TO PRESS ROW is the urban sports talk show and is the only nationally syndicated sports talk radio show geared towards the African-American community.
