Pittsburgh: Off and running

Glad to hear from SPJ veteran Ginny Frizzi that the Pittsburgh chapter has a packed calendar. She sent the following:

The Pittsburgh Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) will present  “Covering All of the Bases: Sports Journalism in Pittsburgh”

Tuesday, September 24, 6-8:30 p.m.

Mullen’s Bar and Grille, 200 Federal Street, North Side

Pittsburgh loves sports. While there is always plenty to cover, this year has been an especially busy one given the Pirates’ success and Pitt moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), not the mention the Steelers, Penguins and high school football.  What is the current state of sports journalism in Pittsburgh? How are reporters able to cover all of the stories? What challenges do they face? Find our when a panel of Pittsburgh sports journalists discuss their work covering local sports.

Moderator: Steve Greenberg, Chair of the Marketing, Sports Marketing, Supply Chain Management and Entrepreneurship Division, Duquesne University and former Vice President of Marketing, Pittsburgh Pirates.

Panelists: Jim Graci, program director, KDKA Radio and “The Fan” (KDKA-FM); Tom McMillan, Vice President of Communications, Pittsburgh Penguins; Dan Potash, anchor/reporter, ROOT Sports; Rob Rossi, Sportswriter, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Great line-up, Pittsburgh. Wishing you a great turnout.
