For what it’s worth my title is Director of the Shore Sports Network which is where all of our sports programming falls under including high school football and basketball, Monmouth University sports, Lakewood BlueClaws baseball and that reason I am especially proud to announce that our own Matt Harmon and Scott Stump will be honored by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association this June.

Harmon, the play-by-play voice of our high school and college sports broadcasts and Tom Williams of Prime Events tied for the New Jersey Sportscaster of the Year Award.  It’s the fourth such honor for Matt and the third year in-a-row he has been selected by his peers.  Meanwhile Stump, who is highly-regarded for his work on our website and in the bi-weekly publication we produce, will share the New Jersey Sportswriter of the Year Award with Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

It’s the first win for Scott who began his career with the Asbury Park Press.  Harmon and Stump will be saluted during the 55th Annual NSSA Awards program June 7-9 in Salisbury, North Carolina along with national winners Mike “Doc” Emerick and Peter King and hew Hall of Famers Marv Albert and Rick Reilly.  Well done guys!
