Sept. 10: Randy Patrick--Sports Director-WKRG Channel 5
Randy Patrick Sports Director We could tell that Randy is a high energy guy, as he described the fast-paced nature of the TV news business. Friday nights are especially hectic because Randy and his team cover High School Football in Mobile County, the surrounding area, and Baldwin County, the largest county east of the Mississippi. At the beginning of his 30-plus year career at Channel 5 news, the recording tapes of local sporting events had to be carried by planes and automobiles to get to the station to meet the news report deadlines. Now, all transmissions of sporting events are carried over the internet. While this expedites the timing of coverage, it imposes faster preparation of reports and tighter deadlines. But, Randy conveyed his enthusiasm for the task without reserve. He clearly likes his job and the WKRG News family. Sporting events in the Mobile area have expanded considerably over the years of Randy's coverage. This is highlighted by the success of the Senior Bowl, University of South Alabama and the Bay Bears sporting competitions. Many home-grown athletes have cut their teeth on Alabama sports teams and have gone on to success in the college and professional ranks. So,if you have a question about Alabama sports, Randy Patrick is the walking encyclopedia to ask. The members of the Gulf Coast Athletic Club enjoyed learning more about sports broadcast business, sports in Alabama, and getting to know Randy a little better.
