Mosher earns CIS Media Award

Acadia alumnus and veteran Chronicle-Herald reporter Monty Mosher (’82) is the recipient of this year’s Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Fred Sgambati Media Award.

The award is presented annually to a member of the news media who has made a significant contribution to the development and growth of Canadian interuniversity sport. It was handed out June 8 during the 2011 CIS Annual General Meeting in Victoria, B.C.

Mosher, whose father Don ran the Acadia University Bookstore for more than 25 years prior to his death in March, grew up in Wolfville, attended Acadia and graduated with an arts and education degree. He enrolled subsequently in the journalism program at King’s College, Halifax and, after completing the bachelor of journalism program there, was a summer intern at The Calgary Herald before coming on as a reporter with The Halifax Herald.

Mosher has been a sports reporter for 26 years and dedicated a significant portion of his career to covering university sport. He has covered Atlantic University Sport (AUS) football since 1993 and university basketball since 1996. He is also this year’s recipient of the AUS Media Award and a silver finalist for an Atlantic Journalism Award in sports writing as well.

Fred Sgambati was a well-respected reporter/broadcaster who over a 28-year career was a great advocate for university athletics in Canada. A former University of Toronto athlete and university football official, Sgambati was the radio voice of the College Bowl (now the Vanier Cup) for its first 13 years. His final broadcast before his death due to cancer was the 1979 College Bowl between Acadia and Western.
