National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association

The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA) is an organization of sports media members in the United States. It constitutes the American chapter of the International Sports Press Association (AIPS).

The purpose of this organization is to recognize the sportscasters and sportswriters of the United States[1] for their leadership, devotion, contributions in developing integrity of character, sportsmanship, and physical fitness among both the youth and the adults of this and other nations. Salisbury, North Carolina, serves as the headquarters for NSSA, which is responsible for the organizing and counting of all the ballots for the National, 50 States plus D.C., and the Hall of Fame winners. There are now more than 80 inductees in the Hall of Fame.[2] The organization plans and funds the Annual Awards Program, and it will ultimately fund the NSSA Hall of Fame.
