As the Penguins muddle their way through another game against the Boston Bruins, I’ve made the decision to set up this blog. It seems like everyone is blogging these days, with thoughts on everything from cooking to synchronized swimming. So, what is this blog all about. In short, it’s about things that I’m interested in, either personally or professionally. I’m the Regional News Director for Renda Broadcasting in Indiana, PA, so there will be plenty of posts about local news. The name of the blog, “The View From Ninth” comes from my view every morning at the corner of 9th and Philadelphia streets. But I’ll also be posting my thoughts about the Pittsburgh Penguins (sore subject right now,) Pittsburgh Pirates (ditto) and other local sports. Should be fun, I’m looking forward to it!
