Fayetteville’s Noah Washington may be a freshman at the University of Arkansas, but he’s already reached a post-doctorate level when it comes to entrepreneurship.
The son of former Razorback defensive back Charles Washington, who played for the Hogs in the mid-1980s before a run with the Green Bay Packers, Noah is a freshman broadcast journalism major at the University of Arkansas who last year launched an online guest interview show on YouTube.
“The Ridin’ Around Show” entails Noah and his guests driving around Fayetteville and the UA campus while they talk sports, music (including car karaoke), culture, cars and more. His episodes will be posted weekly at ARMoneyandPolitics.com.
Guests generally are linked to the Razorbacks, directly or otherwise, and they open up about choosing the UA, their playing careers and life in Fayetteville. Recent guests have included Hog basketball players Devo Davis, Ricky Council IV and Saylor Poffenbarger; Danyelle Musselman, the first lady of Razorback basketball; and new UA Chancellor Charles Robinson.
Razorback freshman phenom Anthony Black joined Noah for a recent episode, shot over the winter break. In it, the 5-star freshman point guard opened up about why he chose Fayetteville over Gonzaga — he trusted Coach Eric Musselman and his track record of sending players to the NBA, plus “the love here is crazy; no other college I visited is like this” — his all-time favorite player (Kobe), the challenge of being counted on to provide leadership as a freshmen and what it’ll take for him to dye his famous patch of hair red.
“The Ridin’ Around Show” is posted weekly to YouTube and social media, and Arkansas Money & Politics will post links to Noah’s episodes. Watch Noah’s episode with Anthony Black below and be sure to subscribe to “The Ridin’ Around Show” so you don’t miss any of his content.
