More university sports coverage

To the editor: Time and time again there are University of Alaska sports events that are untimely or go totally unreported in the News-Miner. Sadly, this carries over to some local TV channels, perhaps due to their reliance on the News-Miner!?

Is this at the direction of the News-Miner administration? Has Hart Pisani been slighted in some fashion by members of university administration and/or staff that is his way of payback? Is this due to the university athletics? It certainly can’t be claimed that all of this action takes place after the paper’s printing “deadline.” In today’s (Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021) sports section there is not one article or even a mention of any University of Alaska activity and online UAF Nanooks coverage relates to last weekend’s activities! Nothing is current although university teams were active and even set records! This is inexcusable!
