The Volleyball Network is a site run by 2008 Olympic Volleyball Gold Medalist Reid Priddy and former Olympian and current volleyball announcer Kevin Barnett. In the winter of 2009, they created the world’s first all-volleyball internet radio podcast. They have been dedicated to bringing listeners great stories and interviews from the volleyball world. Since the show’s inception, they have talked to the giants in the sport. Misty May, Karch Kiraly, Kerri Walsh, Doug Beal, and Hugh McCutcheon have all been on to talk about their careers and the state of volleyball.
Reid is a two-time Olympic athlete and 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist. He is a 12-year veteran of the US Men’s National Volleyball Team and plays professionally for Zenit Kazan in Russia’s Super League.
Reid received his degree in Communications from Loyola Marymount University in 2000. Not knowing how or when his interest in multi-media production would intersect with Volleyball, he always believed there was an untapped potential between the two. He has been outspoken in highlighting volleyballs inability to tell its own story in a consistent and relevant way and has committed himself to being a part of the solution. The Volleyball Network is a strategic step in trying to get volleyball into the reach of those who already love and play the game on a regular basis, which would allow them the access needed to become true - die hard FANS.
He and his wife Lindsay live in Huntington Beach with their son, Caden.
Kevin is a two-time United States Olympian in Indoor Volleyball and founding partner in The Volleyball Network. During his nine years on the US National Team Kevin earned MVP honors twice and was selected to the Olympic roster in 2000 and 2004. Although he didn’t begin playing volleyball until the age of 18, Kevin was fortunate to learn the game from Hall of Fame coaches Marv Dunphy at Pepperdine University and Doug Beal.
In 2006, due to repeated knee injuries, Kevin retired from the National team and transitioned into the broadcast booth beginning with the 2007 World League and 2007 World Cup. Those opportunities lead to his selection by NBC to fill the analyst role for all Indoor volleyball during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He and partner Paul Sunderland called every match for the men’s and women’s Olympic teams including the Gold Medal Finals.
Now residing in Redondo Beach with his wife Arian and two sons Rees, age 7, and Max, age 5, Kevin remains involved in the volleyball community through coaching and broadcasting.
