JIM STEELE - HOST
"The Man of Steele"

Award-winning sports writer Jim Steele is your host of 'The Pressbox'. Steele has won over 40 state awards for sports writing, photography and design at five different papers. He's been named Tennessee's top sports writer by the Tennessee Sports Writer Association, his sports section was judged best in the state by the Tennessee Press Association on two occasions, and he won five straight first-place honors for best football section in the state, six times in a nine-year span and runner-up the other three years. He was a finalist for Sports Writer of the year six times, runner-up four times before winning the top honor 2004. He also received the TSSAA's A.F. Bridges Award and the J.A. Abernathy Award from the McKenzie Touchdown Club.

Steele has covered a variety of sports at a variety of levels from Little League all the way up to the Big Leagues. He has interviewed such notables as Michael Jordan, Peyton Manning, Ozzie Smith, Jack Buck, Mark McGwire, Rick Pitino, Pat Summitt, to name a few. His work has appeared in almost every major daily newspaper in Tennessee, on regional and national radio as well as ESPN television. He has been involved with sports media for over 30 years and has been a part of radio, TV, newspaper, magazine and Internet media in that time. Steele is a fan of the Cincinnati Reds, Miami Dolphins, the Tennessee Vols (when they don't stink) and Duke basketball and the Boston Celtics. He is a fan of all sports, but lists baseball, tennis, football and basketball among his favorites. Thumbing his nose to Father Time, he's always looking for a tennis game or a batting practice partner.
