Maybe the Greatest (Central New York) Story Ever Told

Columnist Sean Kirst explains why he tell stories at the TEDx Syracuse Conference.

Columnist Sean Kirst explains how one story becomes another story at TEDx Syracuse University.

We’ve seen him speak to community groups and interview celebrities, but deep down we think Sean Kirst is a griot, a storyteller. As a columnist/writer Kirst is a great mix of Gay Talese, Bob Greene and Pete Hamill, but at tonight’s TEDx event, he would have given six-figure keynote speakers such as Malcolm Gladwell a run for the money. In 20 minutes Kirst told what we think is possibly the most memorable tale (minus scandal) we’ve heard pertaining to this region.

ESPN announcer and SU grad (’84) Sean McDonough spoke at Newhouse School of Communications on Friday.

Veteran sports journalist Sean McDonough has covered everything from the Olympics and The Masters to the World Series. On Friday, he advised SU students to get as much practical experience as they could on the Hill and early in their careers. And although he graduated 30 years ago, he still finds himself rooting for SU when they are televised (but not when he’s doing play-by of course).

McDonough called today’s SU v. Miami game with Kara Lawson.
