MANKATO, MINN.— Minnesota State University, Mankato’s mass media department will host its media day with guest speaker, Steve DiMeglio. Graduating from MSU in 1987, DiMeglio is coming back Tuesday, April 24th to speak at the annual scholarship celebration.

DiMeglio’s address, “Mickey Mantle’s on Line 1, Steve!” will be held in the Ostrander Auditorium from 4 to 6 p.m.

Once the sports editor for the MSU Reporter and intern for the Mankato Free Press, DiMeglio’s ambition at MSU did not go unnoticed. The Senior Golf Writer for USA Today received MSU’s Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award in 2010. Professor Ellen Mrja, DiMeglio’s former advisor for the Reporter says,

“He was absolutely the most dedicated sports editor our paper has ever had. His sports pages were more than scores; they were interesting, informative and consistently outstanding.”

DiMeglio’s pursuit to success has bid him opportunities to provide coverage on legendary presidents and athletes such as:

  • Bill Clinton
  • George W. Bush
  • Jack Nicklaus,
  • Tiger Woods
  • Tom Brady
  • Payton Manning
  • Arnold Palmer
  • Derek Jeter

Thanks to the Nadine B. Andreas Foundation, this event is free and open to the public.

Follow Steve DiMeglio on Twitter and attend Media Day on April 24th to welcome him back as he revisits his journey from MSU to the White House, to the house that Babe Ruth built, and to the Home of Golf.
