Geoff Ketchum currently runs the website Orangebloods.com.[1] Additionally, Ketchum co-hosted a sports radio talk show on 104.9FM The Horn in Austin, Texas five days a week with Chad Hastings, and has written a book on the history of the University of Texas Longhorns football program titled A Die Hard Fan's Guide to Longhorn Football. While at the University of Texas Ketchum was part of a four-man team that won the 1998 Sports Trivia Bowl. His teammates (David Crabtree, James Crabtree, and Jonathon Muir) had all attended McCallum High School with him in Austin, Texas. Their team, The Knights, is part of the UT Intramural Sports Wall of Fame in the historic Gregory Gym. [1]

Geoff Ketchum's current radio show is called 'Hit Em Up with Ketch'.

In 2014, Ketchum was embroiled in a controversy when he implied a crime in College Station had been committed by a specific member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Football team, on Twitter.[2] Ketchum's implications fueled rumors on message boards and social media, implicating the player by name, which prompted the Bryan Police Department to break normal protocol and comment on an ongoing investigation in order to reveal that the player Ketchum implicated was not in town when the crime was committed.[3] Ketchum admitted on his message board, Orangebloods.com, that he had based his assumption off of unsubstantiated comments that had been made by users on that same message board. Ketchum has also stated that "nearly 20-percent" of the Texas A&M football program was "behind bars", which also was later proven to be inaccurate.
