The Fairfield County Sports Commission announced today that its 2015 Bill Gonillo Local Media Award winners are radio legends Len Gambino, Leo Motyka and the late Bob Ritzert. They will be honored at the 11th annual SportsNight dinner Monday, Oct 19, at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich at 6 p.m.
When News 12 Sports Director Bill Gonillo passed away suddenly at the age of 44 in September 2008, the Fairfield County sports community lost one of its greatest treasures. To recognize the outstanding job he did for 12 years at News 12, the Fairfield County Sports Commission created an annual award in Gonillo’s name. The Commission recognizes members of the media that emulate Bill's passion for local sports, and provide a supportive voice for the sports community in the county.
