MCCAGG NAMED TO USOC’S NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Former Radcliffe rower Mary McCagg ’89 has been named to the United States Olympic Committee’s Board of Directors, chaired by former Major League Baseball commissioner Peter Ueberroth.
Unlike the previous board’s structure, in which the presence of 125 members hampered dialogue and decision-making, the panel’s latest incarnation will be limited in size, composed of just 11 directors.
McCagg, who is the assistant publishing manager of Candlewick Press, twice represented the United States in the Olympics, first in Barcelona in 1992, then at the Atlanta games in 1996. On both occasions, the American eight reached the grand final.
In addition to her Olympic accomplishments, McCagg is an 11-time national champion and two-time gold medalist in international competition.
FOOTBALL TO BE CARRIED LIVE ON WWZN UNDER NEW CONTRACT
Harvard and WWZN have struck a deal that will allow all 10 of the Crimson’s games next season to be carried live on “The Zone.”
WWZN, 1510 on the AM dial, is a Boston all-sports station and currently serves as the radio home of the Boston Celtics.
According to the Harvard press release announcing the deal, the 50,000-watt transmitter utilized by WWZN will allow Crimson games to be broadcast to much of New England and not just the Boston metropolitan area.
“I am excited to add Harvard Football to the growing list of local programming on 1510 The Zone,” WWZN general manager Michael Winn said in the release. “It is only natural to have two entities with such rich traditions as Harvard and The Sporting News team up for a program like this, and I’m thrilled to give our listeners and the business community a 50,000-watt radio station for the 2004 Harvard football season.”
Bernie Corbett and Mike Giardi ’94 will stay on as the voices of the Crimson despite the change in carrier.
