More than a decade ago, my late colleague Conrad Fink began laying the groundwork for a sports journalism program at the University of Georgia. Nine years ago, we hired Vicki Michaelis to launch it. Today, we officially opened the John Huland Carmmichael Sports Media Institute.
Fink’s vision was clear, Michaelis’ has been focused. Proud to have been able to call both of them friends, I only wish they could have met each other.
