I’m actually starting to warm up to Bill Burt.
Burt has been on the sports media scene for nearly 25 years now, and has spent his entire career at the Lawrence Eagle-Tribune where he is now the Executive Sports Editor for the paper.
He joined the paper right out of college, and has covered events such as Marvin Hagler fights in Las Vegas, the Patriots Super Bowl trips, and even tried out for the Manchester NH Arena Football League team for a story. He also does the Burt Talks Sports blog for the paper. For a while, the blog was squatting on the BradfordonBaseball.com domain after Rob Bradford left the Eagle-Tribune, but now the domain has been transferred back to Bradford and points at his Boston Herald blog.
He has gotten most of his biggest exposure in the region as a result of his appearances on WEEI’s Big Show, where he is forced to play a bumbling, forgetful role to make Glenn Ordway look smarter. Burt has also hosted a weekend show with Lenny Megliola on the station, one which resulted in a Pete Gustin skit which is actually funny.
He recent Celtics columns and coverage has been top-notch.
