Miller Park in Milwaukee in 2018.

Usually when we call up Keith Strudler, director of the school of communication and media at Montclair State University and WAMC’s sports commentator, it’s to get his thoughts on a major moment in sports. Right now, the biggest story in the world of sports is the utter absence of sports during the coronavirus outbreak.

It started with the NBA, and has affected everything from baseball to the Masters to the Kentucky Derby. What are sports fans going to do with all this extra free time?

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
