Journalist To Discuss The Business & Politics Of Sports At JCC

EDISON — On Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m., Evan Weiner will speak on The Business and Politics of Sports at the Jewish Community Center of Middlesex County, 1775 Oak Tree Road in Edison.

From locker rooms to boardrooms to hearing rooms, Evan Weiner has covered the gritty, pragmatic, dollar-driven sports industry since 1971 by asking consistently probing, difficult and controversial questions. He is among a very small number of people who cover the politics and business of sports and how that relationship affects not only sports fans but non-sports fans as well.

Weiner was a contributing columnist for New York Newsday (2001-05); AM-New York, the New York Press, the Bergen, the Philadelphia Metro, Washington Examiner, Orlando Sentinel, Rhode Island’s Sports Journal, and for The Chicago Tribune’s Spanish Hoy! newspapers in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Mr. Weiner has also appeared on programs on the former WBIS, Channel 31 (New York), RNN (New York), the History Channel with Al Michaels and Frank Deford, as well as ABCNews Now’s Politics Live TV show with Sam Donaldson, and the BBC Radio Documentary Sports and Sponsorship. Along the way Evan has won two Associated Press awards for News Coverage, as well as the United States Sports Academy’s 2010 Ronald Reagan Media Award and its Distinguished Service Award for Journalism in 2003.

The cost for attending the lecture is $8 for JCC members and $11 for non-members.

To register, send your check payable to JCC, along with the names of attendees to JCC of Middlesex County, 1775 Oak Tree Road, Edison, NJ 08820 and indicate “Evan Weiner lecture” in the memo section.
