Over the past few years during the Hoop Historians travels, the media has taken note of this elite group.  During the 2002 Final Four in Atlanta, the Journal-Constitution newspaper interviewed several Hoop Historians and the below article ran in the April 2, 2002 edition of the paper.  The Historians again were featured in 2008, with a front page spread in the sports section of the Daily Herald Newspaper out of suburban Chicago.  The article ran on Saturday of the Final Four games -- April 5, 2008.  One year later, in 2009, the Hoopsters were spotted walking on the streets of Detroit and were interviewed by WXYZ-TV.  The Action News piece became the lead story of the 11:00 p.m. newscast on Thursday night of Final Four Week -- April 5, 2009.    In 2015, a pair of Hoop Historians were interviewed about their past Final Four experiences. Brian Burmeister was interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel for a piece that ran on March 27, 2015 and Dennis Mishko was interviewed and videoed for an April 5, 2015 segment on the Scranton Tribune-Times media group.  In 2016, the Houston Chronicle interviewed Hoop Historian Bren Petar and his wife Kitty on the streets of Houston.  Listed below are links to those media moments.
