Garrett Short joined the 9 On your Side Sports Team in September of 2021.
He comes to Eastern North Carolina from Rochester, Minnesota, where he spent two years covering everything from playoff Twins baseball to high school football on Friday nights.
Before moving to Minnesota, Garrett graduated from Indiana State University with a degree in Communication in May of 2019. While in school he announced college baseball, basketball, football and soccer games.
He is originally from a small town located 40 miles south of Chicago. He grew up playing sports year-round, and is happy he gets to combine his love of sports and storytelling into a career.
When away from the sideline or the studio, Garrett likes to travel and is an avid snowboarder. He looks forward to adventuring around North Carolina and experiencing all the Tar Heel state has to offer.
