Steve SmithMSU Athletics Hall of Famer, NBA All-Star, U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist and NBA TV sports analyst Steve Smith, who was part of the 2000 Olympic gold medal basketball team in Sydney, Australia, will moderate the "SSJC All-Star Panel: Covering the Olympic Games."

WKAR “Current Sports” Host and CAS alumnus Al Martin will kick off the event and interview Smith, asking him to share his experience of winning an Olympic gold medal with the U.S.A. men’s national basketball team at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.

After the one-on-one interview with Smith, four CAS alumni sports journalists will share their experiences covering the Olympics, including the recent Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Members of the panel include Charles Robinson, senior investigative reporter for Yahoo Sports; Rick Gosselin, columnist for The Dallas Morning News; Jo-Ann Barnas, former Detroit Free Press sportswriter; and Craig Custance, senior NHL writer for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com Insider. They each will share their experiences covering the Olympic Games and answer questions from the audience.

Prior to the panel, there will be an opportunity for alumni, faculty, staff and students to have their photo taken with Professor of Journalism Sue Carter's Olympic torch, which she carried during the Olympic Torch Relay leading to the Salt Lake City Winter Games in 2002.
