ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University Athletics announced on Tuesday the addition of Alex Marcheschi to its staff for the upcoming 2013-14 academic year. In his new capacity, Marcheschi will serve as the department's feature story reporter for OhioBobcats.com.
Marcheschi, who will begin his senior year in the fall, is currently enrolled in Ohio University's prestigious E.W. Scripps Journalism program. He joins the Athletics' department staff following stints with the sports departments at WOUB and The Post.
"Alex brings a tremendous amount of sports writing experience to the table and we are thrilled with his addition," said Assistant Athletics Director for Media Relations Tom Symonds. "Highlighting the accomplishments of our student athletes is one of primary goals with OhioBobcats.com. I believe our fans will enjoy the increased content and feature stories that come from Alex's writing style."
Marcheschi will publish two articles a week online and will author a sidebar column after each football game and selected men's and women's basketball contests. On Mondays, Marcheschi will publish "The Week That Was", which will recap all of Ohio's sporting from the previous week. On Fridays, fans can expect a "Friday Features" piece that will highlight a different student-athlete story each week.
"I'm very excited to cover Ohio Athletics for OhioBobcats.com and am grateful for the opportunity to publish news and stories for the readers and fans," Marcheschi said.
