HALL STEPS IN AS FWAA'S SECOND VP

DALLAS (FWAA) Roanoke Times sports columnist Jack Bogaczyk has resigned as the second vice president of the FWAA in 2001. He is leaving the Roanoke Times on Aug. 11 to become the Media Relations Director for the Roanoke franchise in the new National Basketball Development League.

"I was really looking forward to working more intimately with the FWAA," Bogaczyk said. "But this was too good an opportunity to pass up."

Bogaczyk will be replaced by long-time Arkansas Democrat-Gazette sports columnist Wally Hall as an FWAA officer behind current FWAA president Dave Sittler of the Tulsa World and first vice president Kelly Whiteside of USA Today. Whiteside will be the FWAA president in 2002, and Hall will assume the reins as the FWAA leader in 2003.
