Ann Liguori

Expert radio and television sports commentator, and author on the game of golf and its stars, Ann Liguori, presented the Ann Liguori Foundation Sports Media Scholarship, now in the 5th year, at the 2019 Matrix Awards. The event, which this year took place at the Sheraton New York Times Square, is held annually since 1970 to honor the most extraordinary women in the communications industry for their accomplishments and contributions.

The Ann Liguori Foundation Sports Media Scholarship supports the study of sports media communications or management and is intended for those hoping to pursue a career in sports broadcasting, reporting, programming or production. Mentorship has always been an important component of Ann Liguori’s world and legacy, and every year she mentors the Scholarship recipient. This year’s winner was Danielle Pluchinsky, currently a sophomore at Ithaca College, where she is a sports media major with minors in journalism and marketing. She is currently interning in her college athletic communications office and was the Assistant Sports Editor and then Sports Editor for her college newspaper.
