Athletic Media Relations
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State athletic department on Friday named John Manuszak assistant director of media relations. Paul Kowalczyk, Director of Athletics, made the announcement.
Manuszak will head the publicity efforts and serve as a media liaison for Colorado State’s volleyball, men’s basketball and track and field programs, all of which are nationally prominent. The volleyball team just earned the right to host an NCAA regional this fall, while the track program recently tied a school record with five All-America performances at the NCAA championships.
He joins the Rams from the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association, where he has worked in the team’s communications office since 2002. He played a behind-the-scenes role as the club advanced to the playoffs in each of the last three seasons, including the 2007 NBA Finals. In addition to writing and editing game notes, the annual media guide and press releases, and managing the team’s staff of interns, he also arranged media interviews with coaches, front-office personnel and players, including LeBron James, the first overall selection in the 2003 NBA Draft.
Manuszak worked three years as a student assistant in John Carroll University’s sports information office. He also completed an eight-month communications internship with the Ohio Athletic Conference. He graduated in 2003 from John Carroll with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a minor in business.
A native of North Canton, Ohio, Manuszak and his fiancé, Kelly, have plans for a wedding later this year. A graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Louisville, Ohio, he officially will begin his duties at Colorado State on July 21.
