Cameron Teague Robinson, new entertainment reporter for Dispatch

On March 31, I was walking through downtown Minneapolis on my way to dinner with a few friends.

It was day 10 of a 12-day work trip covering the Louisville women’s basketball team’s Final Four performance, and I was looking forward to the Old-Fashioned I was about to enjoy. However, at the moment I was thinking.

For me, covering the Final Four was a dream come true. I grew up in Cleveland in a family full of Browns fans, but basketball was king. Everyone played, and watching the NCAA tournament became a family tradition. We watched as many games as we could, from the first round to the family party we planned for the national championship game.

So covering the Final Four was a special feeling for a guy who knew he wanted to be a sportswriter as early as third grade. But it was also a strange feeling. At that moment, everyone around me knew that I was leaving the Louisville Courier-Journal to take a job at Columbus Dispatch as a new features/entertainment and “things to do” reporter.
