 USA Today’s Steve DiMeglio will speak on April 24 for MSU’s Media Day

MSU alumni DiMeglio will share his journey from working at The Reporter to becoming Senior Golf Writer for USA Today

DiMeglio will be speaking  at 4 p.m. on April 24 in celebration of Minnesota State University, Mankato’s annual Media Day. This event will be held in Ostrander Auditorium located in the Centennial Student Union.

DiMeglio will speak at his event, “Mickey Mantle’s on Line 1, Steve!” about his journey from the White House to the House that Ruth built to the Home of Golf.

DiMeglio holds a true passion for sports, and an even bigger passion for writing about them. While he was attending MSU, he wrote for the sport section at The Reporter and now dedicates his time as the USA Today’s Senior Golf Writer.

Of his time spent as a student, Professor Ellen Mrja say, “He was absolutely the most dedicated sports editor our paper has ever had. His sports pages were more than sources. They were interesting, informative and consistently outstanding.”

 It is obvious that DiMeglio is an icon to many students. Not only because of his high status at USA Today, but because he has provided coverage for such a large range of public icons Some include:
  • Bill Clinton
  • Tiger Woods
  • Tom Brady
  • Payton Manning
  • Arnold Palmer
  • George W. Bush
DiMeglio’s father, Dr. John DiMeglio, and his mother will be in attendance along with scholarship recipients and other mass media students.

The event is free and open to the public thanks to the Nadine B. Andreas Foundation.
