Josh Croup
Josh Croup returns to the sports desk as co-sports editor after serving during the 2016 calendar year as editor-in-chief. Josh has covered a wide variety of news stories at Point Park University from a professor's resignation to faculty union contract negotiations. He began writing for the Globe during the first week of his freshman year as the Rugby Club beat reporter. Croup started his sophomore year with the Point Park Globe as the sports editor and was promoted to the editor-elect position three weeks into the semester. In January 2016, he took over as the editor-in-chief as one of the youngest editors in the Globe's nearly 50-year history. He sill holds his role as the weekly sports columnist and received the Society of Professional Journalists Region 4 Mark of Excellence Award for column writing in 2016. He enters his sixth semester as a Globe staff member.
