Atlantic Records President of Promotion Andrea Ganis Looks Back, and Ahead, at Her Legendary Career

Click here to read the full article.

Few music industry vets approach the level of royalty in the radio world that Andrea Ganis, Variety‘s Hitbreaker of the Year, inhabits. She rose through the ranks at Atlantic Records until they had to create a new title for her: president of promotion.

“Atlantic was a powerhouse then as it is now, so I got to work legendary acts throughout my career,” says the New York native. “My early years began with the Rolling Stones, Bette Midler, Abba, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Phil Collins, U2, Stevie Nicks and so many more, including songs that I forgot I promoted until I hear them in a store and point up and say, ‘I worked that record!’”

That streak has continued over the years, particularly with the remarkably consistent current regime of co-chairs Craig Kallman and Julie Greenwald, who have steered the ship since 2004.

Y’all must’ve forgot: Five legendary moments from Roy Jones Jr.’s boxing career ahead of the Mike Tyson fight

On Saturday night, two of the all-time great fighters in boxing history will step into the ring to face off in an exhibition fight when Roy Jones Jr. does battle with Mike Tyson. Few athletes in history have reached the heights of fame — and infamy — of Tyson. Despite Jones never reaching Tyson’s level of notoriety, it’s almost without question that Jones is the better fighter in a historic context.

Jones is the only fighter ever to start his career at junior middleweight and go on to win a heavyweight world championship. He won world titles along the way at middleweight, super middleweight and light heavyweight and was ultimately recognized by Ring Magazine as Fighter of the Decade for the 1990s.

Ahead of Jones’ clash with Tyson at Staples Center in Los Angeles, let’s take a look back at five of the most memorable fights of his storied career.

Doc Emrick Reflects on Legendary Career and Ties to Pittsburgh

He called all three of Pittsburgh’s Stanley Cup championships in 2009, ’16 and ’17, along with the most magical moments of Sidney Crosby‘s career, like his Golden Goal at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

In addition to that, Emrick has a number of neat ties to the city of Pittsburgh. He began his career covering the Penguins in the 1970-71 season as a freelance reporter with the Beaver County Times while teaching at Geneva College, and of course, has been a passionate Pirates fan ever since he was a kid.

So after Emrick, 74, announced his retirement last month following a magnificent 50-year career, he received a number of messages from members of the Penguins organization. Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang all sent texts, with Mike Sullivan even writing a short letter that he mailed to Emrick’s home in Michigan.

“He’s just had such a huge impact on

‘Legendary’ University of Minnesota law professor C. Robert ‘Bob’ Morris dies at 92

Bob Morris loved nothing more than to mingle with his fellow University of Minnesota faculty and take promising law students under his wing.

Morris taught torts, property, corporations and business law for 36 years at the U’s law school. He dedicated his life to academia and treated those around him like family. He and his wife, Sandy, regularly attended faculty dinner parties and invited colleagues and students to their home. He also was a staunch advocate for his peers, representing faculty in tenure cases and advocating for the law school as a member of the U’s faculty senate.

Morris, a champion for fairness and equality, died peacefully Oct. 16. He was 92. In his late years, his health declined because of Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia.

“Bob just loved teaching. But he also loved being a part of the university community,” said Sandy Morris, his wife of 50 years.

This Notre Dame vs. Boston College game has eerie similarities to legendary 1993 upset

Notre Dame beat the No. 1 team in the country for the first time since 1993 last week.  

Now, the Irish are hoping history doesn’t repeat itself.  

Notre Dame, now ranked No. 2, pulled off a thrilling 47-40 double-overtime upset against top-ranked Clemson at Notre Dame Stadium on Nov. 17. It was the first time the Fighting Irish beat No. 1 since the legendary 31-24 upset against No. 1 Florida State in the “Game of the Century” on Nov. 14, 1993. 

Of course, Irish fans know what happened the following week. That might be why seeing Boston College on the schedule again is causing some anxiety. The Eagles upset Notre Dame 41-39 on Nov. 21, 1993, in one of the most infamous losses in Irish history. Seriously, just say Glenn Foley out loud and see where that conversation goes.  

There are some interesting similarities to this year’s game.

Masters 2020: Kirk Herbstreit said no to THREE separate Augusta National invites from a legendary college hoops coach | This is the Loop

As every golf junkie knows, there are a handful of invites you simply don’t say no to. Invites that make you drop everything you’re doing to get on a plane or hop in the car with your sticks. Invites that flip your entire world on its head. Augusta National is one of those invites.  

Kirk Herbstreit, co-host of “College GameDay,” which will air live from the Masters this Saturday, apparently doesn’t share that sentiment. During a Zoom call with a handful of reporters on Wednesday afternoon, Herbie admitted to committing one of the gravest sins a golfer can commit: saying no to an Augusta National invitation. As if that wasn’t enough of a gut punch to those who dream of an invite inside ANGC’s gates, Herbstreit made an even more stunning admission—he said no THREE times. 

The level-headed folks reading that may be thinking, “hey, Kirk’s a busy man. I’m

Tom Heinsohn’s legendary NBA career spanned decades

Tom Heinsohn is one of only four people to be inducted twice into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Mike Gorman, longtime Boston Celtics play-by-play announcer, had a line that always delighted his partner Tom Heinsohn, to the point he would nudge Gorman to drop it on any fresh audience they could find.

“Everybody 60 or over knows Tommy as a player,” Gorman told NBA.com back in December 2010, when they were just 30 years into their 40-year relationship calling Celtics games. “Everybody 40 or over knows Tommy as a coach. Everybody 20 or over knows Tommy as a broadcaster. And everybody 10 or under thinks he’s Shrek.”

Throwing 10 more years on that pile clinched it, the number of people growing exponentially who thought of Heinsohn – who died Tuesday at age 86 – as the boisterous, lovable color man for his beloved Celtics. He was your loud,

Bill Belichick addresses Frank Gore’s “legendary” career

The debate regarding Jets running back Frank Gore‘s candidacy for the Hall of Fame already should have been over. If not, it should now be.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has chimed in on Gore’s career, and it’s clear that the greatest coach of all time believes that Gore belongs in Canton.

“[I have a] tremendous amount of respect for Frank,” Belichick told reporters on Friday. “He’s had a great, great career — incredibly durable, tough, consistent. He has a great playing style. I know he gives great leadership and toughness to the teams he’s been on — I mean, that’s really legendary. But, yeah, I have a tremendous amount of respect competing against him. He’s had one of the great careers at his position in the National Football League. Just very, very impressive.”

Gore, through years of consistency and determination, has become No. 3 on the all-time leading rusher list.
