Fletch’s blog is hijacked

It’s Melanie Hebert- I’m hijacking Fletch’s blog for a moment.  Being the newbie at WDSU and not eligible for any awards myself, I thought it would be most appropriate if I informed you about what happened this weekend to your Offsides Blog moderator here… yes, the other Mackel.  I know he likes to post his personal pictures for you (i.e. running with the bulls, early reporting days, etc) but I didn’t think he would take it upon himself to brag  so I’m hijacking his blog in hopes you will give him a BIG CONGRATULATIONS!  Fletcher won Best Sportscast of the year at the New Orleans Press Club Awards Saturday night!  These awards are voted on by press clubs around the country.  The awards ceremony was hosted by NBC’s Hoda Kotb, no stranger of course to New Orleans.  Fletcher also won 1st place for best sports show along with Richard Kiss and Keli Fulton.  I posted some pictures (courtesy of Lauren Hotard).   Congrats Fletch!  See below for other WDSU winners as well.
