I have worked closely with Dan Angelo and Mark Fogg and consider them with the utmost regard both personally and professionally.

Many parents of female and/or male high school athletes can thank Angelo and Fogg for media coverage in newsprint and on the air. They tirelessly scheduled and arranged for reporters and broadcasters to travel throughout the six adjacent counties (and beyond) bearing in mind that a team with a 0-6 record deserved just as much coverage as a 6-0 team.

Angelo and Fogg not only lived and worked here, but were also tremendous fans of our teams. Their reporting may have been objective, but their true feelings (often enthusiastically at the office) rooted for our sons and daughters. They have felt the elation of victories and the pangs of defeat along with us for every sports season throughout the years.

Moreover, Angelo and Fogg were very loyal to its citizenry and they hired locally. Both believed that any good story should be written and told better. They represent all that is good in sports media.
