Hawkins was then given the opportunity to work with local news radio station, WINA 1070am, which included a feature titled Inside The Hawk’s Nest Show. The show provided in-depth analysis and insight on upcoming sporting events and debate hot topics weekly, that involved collegiate and professional sports.
In December of 2014, Hawkins was offered the opportunity to create and script his own sports/hip hop show on 92.7 KISS FM, The Home of Old School Hip Hop and R&B. The show consisted of a 4 hour blend of the hottest songs, old and new, plus sports commentary segments. Hawkins was in charge of each song played and each daily segment that was discussed. This was the birth of The Ball Hawk Show. The Ball Hawk Show was something the city of Charlottesville had ever heard of on the radio. Hawkins would provide expert analysis for all sports and used his personal professional experiences to keep the audience glued to the radio. Hawkins provided jokes and also would perform a freestyle rap at the end of each show, to recap all the topics discussed, just in case listeners didn’t have the chance to listen for the entire 4 hours.
