Noah Pransky is a reporter for WTSP - the CBS affiliate in Tampa. He
traces his broadcasting roots back to the age of 10, when he reported
his first story on Boston's WBZ radio.
Since then, the native of Needham, Mass. has earned a broadcast
journalism degree from Boston University, covered the Georgia Bulldogs
in Northeast Georgia, and more recently, worked in both sports and news
for the ABC and NBC affiliates in Fort Myers. In addition to working
the Red Sox beat during spring training, he's also worked for the
franchise twice. He served as "Wally the Green Monster" from 2000-2001
and as the team's spring training public address announcer from
Noah has been honored for his work in television both regionally and
nationally. His list of accomplishments include four straight
nominations for "Best Sports Feature" by the Florida Associated Press,
consecutive Edward R. Murrow Regional Awards for Sports Reporting, "Best
Sportscaster in Southwest Florida" by readers of the News-Press, and
"Best Sportscast" from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters.
However, not all his experiences in front of the camera have been
positive - he was a contestant on Hollywood Squares in 1999. He lost.
Badly. But despite the disappointment, Noah has since re-focused his
efforts toward achieving his other lifetime goal - appearing as a puzzle
on Wheel of Fortune.
