This is the second time in the last year that Gore has been recognized for his work. Gore, who also a part-time news reporter at WJPA and the “Voice of the Washington Wild Things” minor league baseball team, was awarded the Frontier League’s Commissioner’s Award of Excellence in September for his outstanding service to the community. Gore was instrumental in organizing the Wild Things Ovarian Cancer Awareness Night, which is now an annual event at CONSOL Energy Park.

In addition to 11 Associated Press awards, Gore is also a two-time recipient of the Frontier League’s Broadcaster of the Year Award, taking home the honor in 2008 and 2011.

With the North Allegheny Sports Network, Gore has broadcast numerous championship events and title victories for the North Allegheny athletic programs. You can find the current broadcast schedule for the North Allegheny Sports Network by clicking here.
