Rocky “Rock-T” Turner
Professional baseball player turned DJ and radio personality, Rock-T aka Rocky Turner, has a heart to motivate people to stop making excuses and get it done. After his career as a baseball player ended, Rock-T set his eyes on becoming a radio DJ. After being rejected 5 times, he made the station an offer they couldn’t refuse. And it paid off! He is currently a sports analyst and member of the hilarious nationally syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show. He has also appeared on the television shows Dish Nation and Rickey Smiley For Real.
Rock-T has taken his powerful and motivational messages to Universities, non-profits, and Fortune 500 Companies including McDonald’s, AT&T, and the NFL. He & his wife Krystal’s Podcast “The Perfect Pair”, is a series of fun, engaging content, designed to give couples a place to rekindle the “fun” in their relationship. His passion for giving back has led Rock-T to create many initiatives including Stomp Wars, the nation’s largest youth step competition; Dream Job Freedom, an organization that has helped thousands reach their goals of finding a dream job; and ROCKTEEN, A Youth Program that continues to serve thousands of youth.
