NewzBreaker Management Team
In 2004, Berkwitt launched his first web site www.ringsidereport.com and over the years, he has taken the online Boxing Magazine to the top of the rankings. “Bad” Brad always had a boxing background and during his childhood, he fought as an amateur boxer for three years (80-83) out of North Miami Beach, Florida. He also is the successful Author of the boxing book: Boxing Interviews Of A Lifetime.
Berkwitt retired from the US Navy (September 2006) with his 20 years of Honorable Service to our country, and was honored in a Retirement Ceremony held in the Pentagon.
On top of his CEO duties at NewzBreaker and RSR, “Bad” Brad appeared from 2000-2012 , as a boxing analyst on News Channel 8 Sports Talk TV Show with Host Glenn Harris that is viewed in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
His nickname “Bad” came from fellow Author and Boxing Ring Announcer, Henry “Dis-com-bob-u-lating” Jones in 2000 and has stuck ever since. In Henry’s words, “I gave him that nickname because he always stands up for what he believes in, and the fighters truly respect him for being so positive in all of his interviews.”
Berkwitt’s love of not only boxing, but entertainment, which is in his blood since his late Father Alvin Berkwitt acted and instilled in him an understanding of the goings – on – in Hollywood, came up with the idea to parlay the success he had in boxing with a brother site to RSR called NewzBreaker.com. NB will be your one stop Online Magazine for Entertainment, Interviews, World News, and many more diverse topics as the months go by.
“Bad” Brad is an old time movie and music buff who was probably born in the wrong generation. His love of the classic singers along with the newer ones such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Dame Shirley Bassey, Rod Stewart, Chuck Brown, Rick James, Al Martino, Paul Williams, Dean Martin, and French Diva “The Little Sparrow” Edith Piaf to name just a few, truly do set him back in a time where singers really sang some great standards.
In 2013, “Bad” Brad followed in the footsteps of his late father, Alvin, starting an acting career that has already seen a level of success. Berkwitt has acted in HBO’s VEEP, House of Cards, several shows on the ID Channel and in Industrial Videos. You can check out his acting website at www.badbradberkwitt.com
Grim X. is a child of the 60’s and no doubt when you meet him with his laid back way, you will see he came from the right generation. A boxing-fitness nut, he has competed in body building contests and then went into boxing. The design you now see on NewzBreaker is a Grim X. production. Grim X. is an advisor on many web issues to the CEO of Newzbreaker and Ringside Report.com “Bad” Brad Berkwitt. He also is the proud owner of Grimz Gym in Sacremento, California.
