Ethan J. Skolnick, a respected national NBA writer and a local radio talk-show host, is joining The Miami Herald’s Heat coverage, effective immediately.
It is a homecoming of sorts for Skolnick, who covered the Heat and the Dolphins during an earlier stint at The Herald, from 2000 to 2002.
Skolnick has since worked as a general columnist at the Sun-Sentinel, a Heat columnist at the Palm Beach Post and as a national NBA writer at Turner Sports/Bleacher Report.
He brings with him a national and local following that includes 65,000 Twitter followers, an afternoon-drive radio show on 790 The Ticket (which he co-hosts with another former Herald staffer, Israel Gutierrez) and regular appearances on NBA TV and other major media outlets.
"I'm happy to be back full-time in South Florida, covering the team I've come to know best,” Skolnick said.
