DALLAS -- Buffalo News reporter Mark Gaughan was named 26th president of the Pro Football Writers of America during the organization's annual Super Bowl meeting today.
The News is the first paper to have three PFWA presidents. Larry Felser and Vic Carucci were the first two. The PFWA has about 250 members.
A 1983 graduate of Buffalo State, Gaughan joined The Buffalo News as a full-time employee in 1984. He has covered the Buffalo Bills since 1988 and became a beat writer in 1992.
Gaughan will serve a two-year term as head of the PFWA, which promotes and fights for access to NFL personnel so that reporters can better serve the public.
