If you listened to our podcast on Friday, you heard the news that Scott Brown is moving off of the Steelers beat for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review to cover Penn State and golf for the paper. On Monday it was announced that Alan Robinson will be replacing Brown on the Steelers beat according to columnist Dejan Kovacevic on Twitter.
The name of Robinson should ring a bell as he was the long time area writer for the Associated Press up until January of 2011. Robinson covered all of the area Pittsburgh teams for the AP for well over 25 years according to my research.
I have read the work of Robinson for many years and look forward to his coverage of the Steelers for the Trib now. At the same time, I am sad to see Brown leave the beat, as I consider him a good friend and loved reading his work as well. Best of luck to both in their new positions.
