Writing

I was the shipping correspondent in Greece for the ​​Reuters news agency of the United Kingdom from January 1997 to December 1999. Among the articles I wrote were sea pollution threat unity and acting Piraeus head criticizes sell-off (May 11, 1998), Piraeus privatization attacks interest-paper (May 12 1998) and Greek dockworkers call strike (May 26, 1998).
From 1981 to 1985 I worked as the correspondent in Greece for The Irish Press Group Ltd. under Michael P. O'Kane, Chief News Editor and later Dermot MacIntyre, Head of Editorial Services. The Dublin-based group consisted of The Irish Press, Evening Press and Sunday Press.
From February to July 1987 I was the Athens correspondent for the ​​​London Daily News which was launched by the Mirror Group Newspapers Ltd. of London, England.Unfortunately, the newspaper lasted only five months but I had the opportunity to write a number of articles including the general labor strike in Greece (February), strike threat by Greek clergy (March), snow in Athens (March), European Cup Winners Cup football final (May 13), pair held for AIDS (May 15), Greek basketball wins European finals (June 14-15), Britons murder - 2 held (June 30), Corfu death fall (July 2), colossus hand may be a fake (July 10), Greek soccer club signs Biley (July 16-17), Eggar visits Athens (July 29), Greek paper angry at British court (July 29) and Ecclestone supports Greek paper (July 29).My contact at the newspaper was Mike MacLachlan, Chief Sub Editor (Foreign).
I was the Greece and Eastern Mediterranean correspondent for the ​​​Birmingham Evening Mail from 1978 to 1980 covering all the major events in Greece during that time period. The newspaper owned by The Birmingham Post & Mail Ltd. at the time was the largest in the country outside London with a circulation approaching 350,000 and readership of one million.It had 10 editions a day between 10:30 a.m. and about 5 p.m.The newspaper had 40 foreign correspondents then on a freelance basis and my boss was B. T. Bangsberg who was Foreign Editor. His foreign news section had the theme "Around the World, Around the Clock."I filed my stories with a telex machine from the United Press International office in downtown Athens headed by John Rigos.
I was a sports writer for the daily newspaper ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Home News in New Brunswick, New Jersey from October 1970 to September 1974. The newspaper was owned by the Home News Publishing Company.The sports I covered were football, swimming, basketball, rugby, lacrosse, soccer, track and field, wrestling, golf, fencing, baseball, softball, rowing and archery. Mostly area high school and college teams.I also wrote for the newspaper non-sports articles.I would have never thought that starting a career in journalism I would first have to go through delivering coffees, picking up mail and buying Havana cigars for the boss.Yet that was the case when I answered a classified ad for the position of copy boy at The Home News back in the summer of 1969.
Wow, I thought, this was my opportunity to make it into professional journalism, just having graduated from New Brunswick High School where I worked two years on the monthly school newspaper (Brunswick Highlights) as sports editor.Bring me my assignments! I'm ready to take the Pulitzer Prize!But wait, a copy boy doesn't mean that you do any journalism work.First, you have to pick up a sack of mail from the New Brunswick Post Office, then come into the office at 123 How Lane and sort the hundreds of envelopes and deliver to the proper departments.You also have to listen to the WCTC-AM radio newscast in the managing editor's (Ralph Williamson) office and jot down the details for the editor on the shift.Then, once in a while, rip off the wire copy from The Associated Press teletype machines and give them to the proper departments.And later in the evening, take orders for coffees and snacks from all the employees (including the composing room).That amounted to some 30 coffees I would have to deliver from the local McDonald's fast-food chain, in addition to a number of hamburgers, fries, etc.And, not to forget, pick up another 20 or so copies of the New York Daily News from the Albany Street news stand to distribute to my "customers," mostly the composing room staff, and lastly a couple of cigars for Mr. Williamson.Then there was always news copy to pick up from our reporters at the Middlesex County courthouse in New Brunswick and the Somerset County report that was left at the Bound Brook police station.I was doing my job so well, that no one at The Home News had any thoughts of asking me to do any writing.So I took matters into my own hands. It took me more than a year to find enough guts to go over to sports editor Jack Oakley and beg him to allow me to write a story.He gave me that opportunity, and I will always thank him for that.My first byline for The Home News came on October 31, 1970, when I covered the Rutgers University vs. Delaware University freshman football game.I sighed with relief to see my name spelled correctly (I'm sure through the years I gave the composing room people a lot of headaches with that long last name) in my first official byline for the newspaper. I was listed as a Home News Correspondent.From then on, I would be given a number of sports stories to write, including many that I also covered for the Rutgers Daily Targum, the Rutgers University daily newspaper. I was attending Rutgers University from 1969 to 1973 earning my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism.I continued working both as a copy boy (or should it be copy man, now) and a sports writer until midway through 1974.In between doing my copy boy chores, I would rattle away on the typewriter in the women's page department (they usually were not working when I was there) with sports stories, mostly high school football and basketball games.A front page story was written about me in The Home News on July 10, 1965, with the headline "Out-of-Towners Rally to Save Kilmer Home, But City Residents Lag", written by John Pribish.The article began: "The recent publicity of the planned demolition of Joyce Kilmer's birthplace has sparked varied response in the drive to preserve the two-story frame dwelling as a national shrine to the poet-soldier.""Ironically, only one contribution has been made by a New Brunswick resident to the fund aimed at saving the home from the demolition crew."It came from 14-year-old Louis Economopoulos of 276 Delevan St., who donated one dollar."The youth wrote: 'I am a poem lover. Please don't tear down the famous landmark of Joyce Kilmer. I don't want to see it as a parking lot. Why don't you ask all the people in New Brunswick to contribute some money?'"In March 1968 my brother and I happened to come across a head-on car accident in Woodbridge, New Jersey and with my Polaroid camera I snapped a photo which I sold to The Home News .And in June 1969 an article in The Home News was written about high school students looking for summer jobs and I was included.In July 1974, I happened to be on vacation in Greece and to my luck, the invasion of Cyprus by Turkish troops occurred and that was followed by the end of the seven-year military dictatorship in Greece. My journalistic spirit led me to file stories for The Home News from Athens on my experiences, which led to one front-page story. It was difficult explaining to my bosses at The Home News, however, the big telephone bill.Needless to say, I spent all my vacation money on the call, which turned out to be 9,600 drachmas (or $322 then). I was not allowed by the Greek telephone company to call collect, thus I had to pay for the call on the spot.The highlight of my career at The Home News was another front page byline story on Jan. 29, 1971, which appeared with a photo I also took dealing with my personal account of climbing Mt. Washington in New Hampshire in the winter.The sidebar feature came after four Rutgers University climbers were lost (and later found alive) on the treacherous mountain. That month I was presented the publisher's award by The Home News, given every month for the best story, headline, etc.Another highlight was covering the special celebrity charity softball game on July 20, 1973, for The Home News, at which time the singing Carpenters team beat local media staff, which included Oakley. The game was played at Roosevelt Park in Edison.More than 7,000 spectators attended the game, and $9,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society."Economopoulos, if you can't spell it, don't use it!" I would often hear shouted across the newsroom by Oakley (my, how I could have used a spell checker then).Or if Oakley was in a rush to get my story he would shout: "Economopoulos, put a period on it!"While I may have first been hired by The Home News in 1969, fresh out of high school, being a rabid reader of the newspaper all my life I began writing letters to the editor to the paper during my high school days, a number of which were published starting in January 1966, dealing with a variety of issues.My first contact with The Home News came in the summer of 1968 when I was involved in the Middlesex County Fair News, the daily one-sheet newspaper co-produced by New Brunswick High School and St. Peter's High School journalism students for the fair goers.One of the low-lights of my career at The Home News was my June 27, 1971, story on soccer superstar Pele coming to Jersey City to play an exhibition game with his Brazilian Santos team. My byline was printed upside down!I left The Home News, and not because of my upside down byline, but because there was never an opening for a sports writer.That opportunity came in the summer of 1974, when The News Tribune - also known as TNT - offered a part-time job as a sports writer.But more about that in The News Tribune section.
I was a sports writer for daily newspaper ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The News Tribune  (known as TNT for short) in Woodbridge, New Jersey  from September 1974 to December 1978.The newspaper was published by the Middlesex County Publishing Company of Woodbridge.In the summer of 1974 I applied for the job as a part-time sports writer, having four years experience at The Home News, had my interview with Sports Editor Ron Kukulski, and was hired.The TNT sports staff consisted of Kukulski, associate sports editor Chuck Hassol, Wayne Mogielnicki, John Wooding, Bob Wiesner, Mike Balint, Joe Cavone, Rick Malwitz, Barry Levine, Frank Bourke and Kim Muller.I was allowed to cover my favorite sport, soccer, and even my favorite team, the New York Cosmos, which I had been writing about since its inception in 1971 for The Home News.Other sports I covered were football, track and field, cross-country, basketball, wrestling, bowling, baseball, softball, tennis and golf.Just for kicks was my soccer column I wrote regularly in the newspaper.I made a deal with TNT to cover the Cosmos home and away games, which gave me the opportunity to travel with the team to major cities in the United States and Canada for three years.It certainly will be memories I will cherish, traveling with a professional sports team and being on friendly terms with such soccer superstars as Pele, Franz Beckenbauer, Giorgio Chinaglia, Carlos Alberto, etc.As for TNT, it went through a lot of technical changes during my four years there, going from typewriters to IBM electric typewriters with scanners to VDT (Video Display Terminals). All changes which made our job easier.When I left The News Tribune in December 1978 to take permanent residence in Greece, Kukulski wrote a very touching letter:"I greet your resignation from my staff with mixed emotions. On the one hand, I am happy to see you returning to your chosen land of Greece. But on the other, I regret losing a person of your caliber. You have indeed been a credit to the sports department of The News Tribune."Your total dedication to duty has made my job so much easier. I am sure you will succeed during your next step along life's journey. I wish you only the best of everything. A sincere thank you for a job well done during your stay here."The editor of The News Tribune, Charles Paolino, also in a letter of December 1978, wrote about my departure: "On occasions like this I am always reminded rather abruptly that one of my failings is that I neglect to let people know how much I appreciate them."I, too, regret your resignation because in terms of talent and dedication you have been a person of rare value to the newsroom. I'm sure you will succeed eminently in your new position and that you will be happy in your new home. Good luck!"Throughout the years and even up until today, I have kept contact with a number of The News Tribune colleagues, thanks to e-mail.The lowlight for me was on May 27, 1975, when Muller and I were dismissed for "economy" reasons. But the very next day, TNT began hiring the first of at least three summer-relief employees.The North Jersey Newspaper Guild noted that it was inconsistent to be laying off on the one hand and hiring on the other. The guild also argued that the company should have offered the summer jobs to those it was laying off."That would have been the humane thing," said company spokesman David Winkworth, not bothering to explain why The News Tribune chose another course.Needless to say, we got our jobs back, but that was definitely a lowlight in my career (although I must admit I was getting more money from unemployment than when I was working and I also had an opportunity to vacation in Greece that summer).I left TNT not because I was not happy with the newspaper or its staff, but to go to Greece to begin a new career as a foreign correspondent for British newspapers and U.S. media. Choosing a Greek wife had a lot to do with my decision to return to the country of my parents.Through the years here in Athens, covering news events for top world media and local news outlets, I have found my experiences gained at The Home News and The News Tribune have helped me cope with the demands and pressures of journalism.Even if it had to begin with spilled coffees (see The Home News section).
