2010 National Sportscasters And Sportswriters Association Award Winners

nssa

The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association is an organization of sports media members based in Salisbury, North Carolina. It was formed in 1959 to honor local sportscasters and writers, but eventually branched out nationally. There’s been an annual awards program since 1960, the year Lindsey Nelson and Red Smith took home the first awards for sportscaster and sportswriter of the year, respectively. Each year, the 700 NSSA members elect the winners for each award. Over the years, the likes of Vin Scully, Dick Enberg, Al Michaels, John Madden, Peter Gammons, and Bob Ryan have all collected awards from the NSSA.
