The Chicago Blackhawks announced today the hiring of veteran journalist Bob Verdi as Team Historian, a newly created position. In his role, Verdi will use his five decades of sports journalism for periodical feature stories on the team’s website and in its publications along with a variety of other roles.

"We are privileged to add such a true Chicago sports legend in Bob to our staff," Blackhawks Senior Vice President of Business Operations Jay Blunk said. "As Team Historian, he will give our organization perspective and depth in a number of different roles, which includes contributing on chicagoblackhawks.com. His 40-plus years of sports journalism in Chicago will serve as a great link to our franchise’s rich history."

A native of Brooklyn, Verdi served as a staff writer and columnist for the Chicago Tribune from 1967 to 1997 before freelancing for the newspaper as a contributing columnist over the last 12 years. He also served as a senior writer for Golf Digest and Golf World. In 2004, Verdi received the PGA of America Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism, which honors members of the media for the steadfast promotion of golf, both locally and nationally, throughout their career.
