porterIt’s not easy filling the shoes of a 26-year news veteran. But Kristen Leigh Porter is going to try. Officials for the Indianapolis Star recently announced that Porter has been named to replace outgoing Pat McKee as assistant sports editor/high school, effective July 7.

McKee, who was recently inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame for his high school hoops coverage, announced last month that he is leaving the newspaper this summer to move to Florida.

Porter has been a sportswriter at the Star since August, 2003, working out of the newspaper’s north bureau. In addition to covering high school sports, and coordinating prep coverage for Carmel, Westfield and Zionsville, she also had a stint as the backup Indiana Pacers beat writer and has covered the Fever on two separate occasions, including the current season. Porter came to The Star from the St. Petersburg Times.

There is no word on who will take over Porter’s duties as Fever beat writer. Fever officials have lobbied the Star for increased coverage of the women’s basketball team, and will likely lobby the Star for continued daily coverage of the team during its spring and summer season with at least one beat writer.

  1. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
