Our Story

The SkyBoat was formed to help military veterans and college students gain experience in news and media. Launched in 2012 by founder Adrian Beecher, The SkyBoat seeks to give back to the community and expose others to the multitude of opportunities available in the sports industry.

Beecher, a military veteran, hopes SkyBoat can serve as a platform to help others overcome struggle, depression, and confidence while allowing for a creative space where people can achieve their dreams.
