An Evening of Sport Journalism Excellence – 2021 Ring Lardner Awards Ceremony

On April 29th, we were joined by 100 virtual attendees to celebrate EXCELLENCE IN SPORTS JOURNALISM in support of Union League Boys & Girls Clubs and the critical programming and services our Clubs provide to our more than 15,000 Club youth.

The evening ran smoothly thanks to our event’s Emcee extraordinaire, Alex Maragos (Reporter & Weekend Anchor at NBC5 News). During the evening, guests heard our honorees acceptance speeches, commentary from the award presenters, and enjoyed a special panel discussion with the honorees and presenters as they shared great stories about their personal experiences as sports journalists.

Ring Lardner Awards honor broadcasters and writers who exemplify the wit and warmth of Lardner’s writing. Ring Lardner was renowned as a sportswriter, humorist and satirist. We are celebrating journalists in three categories: Broadcast, Print, and Posthumous.
