"Titansonline.com has grown dramatically during the past two years, and we are thrilled to add a writer of Jim's caliber as our site's lead writer," said Titans interim President and CEO Steve Underwood. "Jim has been a leader in bringing our fans Titans news for years, and he also writes insightful features that tell the story of our team and players. Jim is well-respected by fans and his fellow journalists, and we wanted someone of his caliber to anchor our content for Titansonline.com."
In addition to writing about the Titans and coordinating content for the site, Wyatt will work alongside "The Voice of the Titans", Mike Keith, and Titansonline.com correspondent Amie Wells on a variety of Titans media platforms, including Titans All Access, Titans Radio, and both packaged reports and live productions for Titansonline.com.
