New website for National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association

Just in time for its annual awards weekend on May 14-16 in Salisbury, North Carolina, the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association has launched a redesigned website, www.nssafame.com.

The Salisbury Post reports, “The organization’s partners at Indiana University redesigned the site to simplify members’ registering, paying for membership and voting. The Salisbury-based NSSA expressed thanks to Andrew Koop, who did most of the work on the new site; Kurtis Beavers, who oversaw the project; Tim Franklin, director of the National Sports Journalism Center at Indiana University; and Brad Hamm, the dean of IU’s Ernie Pyle School of Journalism.”

During the the NSSA’s annual awards weekend, Brent Musberger, Bob Uecker and Bob Ryan will be inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame.

Update: Trump Fired As Indy Pace Car Driver

In the wake of fan displeasure over Donald Trump‘s role as pace car driver for the upcoming Indianapolis 500, race organizers have reportedly delivered the irony-rich line, “You’re fired!” to the billionaire real estate investor whose recent political rantings — particularly the allegation that President Obama was not born in the United States — rubbed a lot of race fans the wrong way.

Deadspin reports, “A source affiliated with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway tells us Donald Trump will not be the driver of the pace car for this month’s 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 after fans complained he was too politically-motivated.

We’re told a meeting is taking place right now to determine precisely how the Indy speedway folks will enforce the decision. They may replace Trump outright with another celebrity pace car driver, they may ask him to pull out (although a Trump spokesman earlier today said he had no plans to do so), or they may keep Trump involved with the race, but change the pace car to another Chevrolet vehicle and bring on another driver to drive it.”
