by Jake Kring-Schreifels

Chris Taggart

It might be easy for Verne Lundquist, who is now in his 50th year of sports broadcasting, to gloat about his long list of radio and television achievements. But that wouldn't be his style.

Truly humbled, and always reverential to his predecessors, Lundquist graciously received the seventh annual Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award at Gotham Hall in New York City on Thursday night.

Tania Grossinger: A Special Friendship with Jackie Robinson

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

In 1997, One on One interviewed Tania Grossinger, now a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, a freelance writer and public relations consultant. As a little girl growing up in her cousin’s Catskill Resort Hotel, she saw many celebrities check-in each day, but it was Jackie Robinson who was most special to her. She is best known for her work “Growing up at Grossinger’s” and currently the author of “A Memoir of an Independent Woman.” Jake Kring-Schreifels caught up with Tania again to discuss her chance encounter with #42, their lasting relationship, and her most recent children’s book “Jackie and Me: A Very Special Relationship.”
