North Carolina news organizations have recently featured Elon University faculty members whose research or teaching interests are with the business of professional sports.

Mark Cryan, an instructor in the Department of Sport & Event Management, was an April 3 guest on "The State of Things," a statewide radio show on NPR-affiliate WUNC. Cryan had recently published a second edition of a 2008 book on minor league baseball in the Tar Heel State and spoke with host Frank Stacio on the very day that minor league teams opened their season across the United States.

Tony Weaver, an associate professor in the same department, had been featured a few weeks earlier in a segment on WFMY News 2 in North Carolina's Triad region. Weaver spoke to News 2 about the secondhard sales market for NFL playoff tickets.
