The leadership of the Pro Football Writers of America has changed after PFWA president Jim Trotter accepted a position with NFL Media.
PFWA rules limit membership to journalists working for independent media outlets, which means our friends working for league- and team-owned media have not been eligible. Jim is an outstanding journalist who has served the PFWA with distinction. We thank him for his service and professionalism. Vice president Bob Glauber of Newsday will serve as president for the remainder of Jim’s term. We will hold an election for president at our regularly scheduled annual meeting before the next Super Bowl.
Statement from Jim Trotter:
“It has been an honor fighting for access and fairness on your behalf, so it is with regret that I submit my resignation. I hope to be of assistance in the future, even if it’s not as an official member.”
Statement from Bob Glauber:
“A big thank you to Jim for his efforts over the years and best of luck in the new job to a long-time colleague and friend. Jim will always be an ally and trusted resource. I am passionate about the role our organization plays in advocating for our membership, and will continue to promote our interests in covering the NFL. I believe the PFWA can remain a positive force and resource for all of us.”
