Special Tuesday Event -- Becoming the Story: Turning Torment into Triumph with "Fanaticus"

Tuesday, March 15, 2016 - 6:00pm

Emmy-winning investigative journalist and ESPN producer Justine Gubar discusses her new book, "Fanaticus," on sports fandom that draws upon her two decades of experience on the front lines of production at the "Worldwide Leader in Sports." The special Tuesday "Must See Mondays" talk is moderated by Cronkite Assistant Professor Sada Reed.

For almost two decades, Gubar has worked as a television producer for ESPN, where she has covered major sporting events, including NBA, MLB and NFL playoffs, the Final Four and the Olympics. She has produced stories, shows and news coverage for a variety of programs, including “Outside the Lines,” “SportsCenter” and “College GameDay.” During her time at ESPN, she has covered a wide range of off-the-field issues including performance enhancing drug use, domestic violence and homophobia in sports.

Gubar will be signing and selling copies of her book following the talk.
