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.
