Sportscasters & Sportswriters HOF Inducts Bob Costas, John Feinstein

Bob Costas and John Feinstein last night were inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association's Hall of Fame in Salisbury, N.C. In addition, the NSSA also honored ESPN's Dan Shulman as National Sportscaster of the Year and longtime columnist Joe Posnanski as National Sportswriter of the Year. Former NBC Sports Chair Dick Ebersol was on hand to introduce Costas, calling him the “most complete broadcaster in sports history on television as a host, as a play-by-play man, as an interviewer extraordinaire, an essayist and a humorist.”

Costas closed his remarks by noting the constants in a changing media landscape. “There are values that are, or at least should be, timeless. There is value in words. There’s value in craftsmanship. There’s value in dedication to quality and to truth and to fairness. If it’s good, it’s good, whether it is written with a quill pen on parchment paper or posted on a blog.” Feinstein addressed the evolution of sports media in saying, “The news print business may be dying, but there will always, always be a place for great reporting and great writing.”
