ESPN 980 on-air personality, Washington Times sports columnist and Washington-Baltimore journalism legend Thom Loverro returns to the National Press Club Thursday, December 5 at 7 p.m. in the McClendon Room for another Piano Lesson hosted by the Young Members committee.
Loverro co-hosts “The Sports Fix” from noon to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday on ESPN 980 AM and is back for his second stint as Washington Times sports columnist. Loverro was previously at the Times from 1992-2009 before a three-year stint at the Washington Examiner. Loverro has been a professional journalist since 1977, including eight years as a news editor and reporter for the Baltimore Sun, where he covered government, politics and crime.
Loverro was voted Maryland Sportswriter of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association in 2009 and has won 27 national, regional and local journalism awards over his career, including a first place in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, according to his website. Loverro has also written 11 books, many involving his deep knowledge of the mid-atlantic professional sports scene. Loverro is also passionate about non-mainstream sports like Washington and Baltimore’s boxing and horse racing scenes.
As his running feud with Capitals/Wizards/Verizon Center owner Ted Leonis demonstrates, Loverro is not afraid to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. Bring your career questions and Washington pro football takes Thursday, December 5 at 7 p.m. to the McClendon Room. This event is free for members.
