ABOUT THE PUBLISHER
In February 2010, Andrew Chiappazzi became the publisher of PaPreps.
Born and raised in Erie, Chiappazzi endured the hearty lakeshore winters by immersing himself in the daily sports pages and in weekly sports magazines. By age six, he was memorizing sports scores to regal his kindergarten classmates with the weekend's events.
Pursuit of sports journalism took him to Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, where he spent four years working towards his diploma holed in the campus television station. He earned recognition from the Communicator Awards and Society of Professional Journalists for his work as a host of a weekly campus sports show and as a news reporter for the station's news program. Chiappazzi also became the TV voice of the Colonials, broadcasting home football, basketball, and hockey games. In his senior year, Chiappazzi helped launch the brand new online campus radio station with a regular sports talk show.
In August 2008, Chiappazzi hooked up with the Beaver County Times as a correspondent. Starting off as a preps reporter, he's expanded his role to include high school sports, Robert Morris football and basketball, University of Pittsburgh football and basketball, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
His featured assignments as a reporter include the 2004 Presidential Election, 2004 Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C., the 2008 and 2010 NFL AFC Championship games, the first and second rounds of the 2010 NCAA Tournament in Providence, R.I., the 2010 U.S. Women's Open at Oakmont Country Club, and the 2011 NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field.
Chiappazzi still writes for the Times alongside his duties as publisher for PaPreps. He also runs Colonials Corner, an independent site covering Robert Morris sports. He lives in Moon Township and can be reached at email@example.com
