In 2012, ExWHUEmployee created an account as a dare to prove to his mate that he could be more reliable than anyone with news on the club because of his various sources. His reliability was quickly noticed and his following started to rapidly increase as he began to be recognised as the most reliable ITK out there.
As a result of his accuracy, he started to write for a number of West Ham related websites and was even approached to write for national newspapers such as The Sun, The Mirror, The Metro and the Standard. It was from this that he decided to create the West Ham Way website.
In 2016, the West Ham Way Podcast was launched with his close friend Dave Walker and the following year saw the birth of the West Ham Way pre match event, both of which are extremely successful.
Ex has also appeared many times on LoveSport, BBC 5 Live, Talksport and a host of football podcasts.
He is a 4 time nominee for the best social media account at the Football Content Awards with the podcast also being nominated twice.
