Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
I met Kacy Standohar when she was working media with the National Pro Fastpitch Chicago Bandits. My introductory interview with her is at On the Beat With Kacy Standohar. During the pandemic, I got an update Zoom interview with her which is at On the Beat With Kacy Standohar 2020.
I have since seen Kacy while covering Loyola's Women's basketball and the Chicago Dogs. Kacy is seemingly everywhere! Most recently, she works at CHGO Sports, a fun media company.
Kacy is a perfect fit for CHGO Sports. She unquestionably knows her stuff, but she is also a lot of fun. She strikes the right balance and makes it enjoyable for the viewer.
A little while back, former Chicago Bulls champion Bill Wennington was a guest on a CHGO Sports show. Kacy got a great picture with Bill. I had to shae it here and it gave me a chance to spread the word on a fantastic media person and a great friend.
Find Kacy on social media and look for her at CHGO Sports on twitter. I follow her there, but hope to see her soon. It's been too long.
