Cammuso CNHI Sports Writer of Year

Brings ‘passion for what he does’

FAIRMONT — Nick Cammuso, sports editor of the Times West Virginian, has been named Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. Sports Writer of the Year, Division 2.

The award was announced this week by the Times West Virginian’s parent company, CNHI, for its annual Best of CNHI contest.

“It’s obvious Nick has a passion for what he does,” said Chuck Jessup, publisher of the Times West Virginian. “He is my main source for my daily sports updates, whether it’s reading his stories or columns, following his tweets or just having a conversation about what’s happening on the sports scene.

“It’s exciting to know that our local sports editor has been recognized as a top writer out of more than 130 communities in 23 states. Congratulations, Nick, on a job well done.”

The Best of CNHI contest recognizes the individual and collective works of the company’s journalists who produce community newspapers, websites and niche publications across the U.S.

Some of the samples of Cammuso’s work selected by the Times West Virginian management as representing the breadth of his work during 2012 included: a breaking sports story when Fairmont State University’s athletic programs announced they would be forming a new all-sports league, and an accompanying column on the issue; an in-depth story about local high school football programs preparing for the drop from Class AAA to Class AA; a feature story about a North Marion High School basketball player who overcame injury and his mother’s death during his senior season, and a column about that same basketball player wearing pink shoes during games in honor of his mother’s battle with breast cancer; and coverage of the soccer and lacrosse teams as they competed for titles in their respective sports.
