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.
