Barring an in-game tour by preschool students, Howie Magner is routinely the shortest person in Milwaukee-area press boxes. Still, the University of Tulsa grad spent 15 years covering sports for newspapers in Oklahoma, Ohio and Michigan, winning more than a dozen awards for everything from spot news to features to columns. He joined Milwaukee Magazine in 2007 as an associate editor and soon began his Sports Nut column, which was honored in 2009 and 2010 by the Milwaukee Press Club. He's often a guest, and an occasional guest host, on SportsRadio 1250, and he talks sports once a month on WUWM's "Lake Effect." He also tweets sports regularly as @howiemag and enjoys acting, history and travel. Finally, when interviewing Bucks players, he hopes they're sitting down.
