“I initially created ScubaRadio as an excuse to go diving on company time while working at a radio station in Orlando. While it quickly evolved into the more noble mission of promoting diving to the masses, 12 years later we still focus on having fun and DEMA is the perfect venue to showcase this fact….it’s still a blast doing it too!“ Greg Holt – producer/host of ScubaRadio.

ScubaRadio airs every Saturday from 3-5pm EST on approximately 40 radio stations throughout the US and worldwide at The weekly show is streamed live, archived and Podcast at a rate of over 2000 downloads a day.
