"I guess this is what happens when you've been covering sports in the same state for 32 years," says Korb, who majored in English (composition) as an undergraduate. "Seriously, I was surprised and humbled when I found out. I'm now among a pretty select group of people who have won this award."
He adds, "I've also been lucky to work at a newspaper like the Courier & Press that has allowed me to cover not only high school, college and professional sports, but the freedom to write about them however I saw fit. Since I grew up in Evansville, I've always known this is a city that really enjoys its sports and takes them seriously. Heck, I was one of those people as a kid. Now, for the last 27 years here, I've been fortunate to write about all of it."
Korb's career has also involved stints at Indiana's Lebanon Reporter, New Castle Courier-Times and Evansville Press.
