R.I.P. "Hoot" Gibson

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Jul 5, 2013.

  1. Longtime Martins Ferry (Ohio) sports writer, columnist Richard "Hoot" Gibson died after a fight with lymphoma. He was 60.
    He spent 32 years on staff at the Times Leader and covered a lot of stuff. He was pretty well-known in the area.

    Knew him from working down there. Remember him crowing about hitting the entire Final Four at a Wheeling Thunderbirds game when Mississippi State made it around 20 years ago. I was in the pool and though I was good b/c I had three out of four.

    RIP, Hoot.
