What's it like to be a female sports writer?

If your daughter told you when she was a little girl that she wanted to be a writer, you would probably proudly say that that is an excellent career for a creative young woman.

And then she adds that she wants to write for the newspaper. Your reaction would no doubt be equally positive.

That is, until she informs you that she wants to grow up to be a sports writer.

There was a time in the news business that that would have been impossible, but now, the door has been opened. Not wide open, mind you, but open enough for Paola Boivin to walk through and make a career at The Arizona Republic.

About the Author

He's done it all -- and keeps doing it. His career in local Arizona radio and television dates back the late 60s. Pat always stimulates with his thought provoking, opinionated, and entertaining commentaries on the Arizona Morning News while hosting award-winning talkshows like "The McMahon Group" and "The God Show."

"The McMahon Group" features an unpredictable all-star panel where three people from the community get together and give their thoughts on the news of the week. He also hosts "The God Show" on Sunday's where he talks about all aspects of spirituality.

Pat is also well known outside of radio because of his multifaceted career as an actor, producer, recording artist, writer, broadcaster, and one-third of the legendary comedy team that was on TV for 35 years in Arizona, "The Wallace and Ladmo Show."

Through the many experiences of his professional life, Pat has been richly rewarded with 7 Emmys, major national and international radio awards as well as numerous civic, educational, religious and humanitarian awards. Pat was also a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Ottawa University, the Arizona Broadcasters Lifetime achievement Award, and has his bronze likeness hanging in the rotunda of the Herberger Theater in recognition of his contributions to Communications & The Arts.
