Pewter Report Announces Personnel Changes

Pewter Report announces staff changes for the 2011 season, including the hiring of two Bucs beat reporters that will be joining our contributing writers, and the departure of editor-in-chief Charlie Campbell, who will be leaving to focus on the NFL Draft for WalterFootball.com.
As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers work to configure their roster for the upcoming season, PewterReport.com is doing the same and will have some personnel changes for 2011. Front and center is the departure of editor-in-chief Charlie Campbell, who is leaving PewterReport.com to take a position as a senior draft analyst for WalterFootball.com, a Pewter Report ally.

Campbell, who has worked for Pewter Report for the past three years, the last of which as the organization’s editor-in-chief, will be leaving to cover the NFL Draft for WalterFootball.com at the conclusion of Bucs training camp.

“While I’m sad to lose such a gifted senior Bucs beat writer in Charlie, I know that covering the NFL Draft is something that he has been extremely passionate about,” said Pewter Report publisher Scott Reynolds, who enters his 16th season covering the Buccaneers. “Charlie has quickly grown into an ace NFL reporter and he will be missed. The opportunity at WalterFootball.com is really in line with Charlie’s passion, and now he will get the chance to cover the draft on a full-time basis rather than a part-time basis as he did with PewterReport.com. I know his Bucs draft analysis for PewterReport.com was instrumental over the years in us accurately forecasting the likes of the team selecting wide receivers Arrelious Benn and Mike Williams, safety Ahmad Black and others.”

Campbell’s love of NFL Draft coverage was evident in his Pewter Prospect profiles and his signature PI Quick Hits column, which he created.

“As a good friend of Charlie’s, I am extremely excited for him about this opportunity, and our paths will undoubtedly cross as we collaborate on Bucs draft coverage in the offseason. On behalf of the entire staff at Pewter Report, we wish Charlie well and thank him for his wonderful contributions to our company over the past three years as an important member of our organization.”

“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to work at Pewter Report the past three years,” said Campbell. “I have greatly enjoyed interacting with and writing for Pewter Report’s subscribers. I’m also very fortunate to have formed such great friendships that I have with staff members like Scott Reynolds, Jim Flynn and Kim Roper. I will always be grateful to Hugh MacArthur and Pewter Report for the opportunity to cover the Buccaneers. I’m very fortunate and excited to have the opportunity to work at Walter Football, and I look forward to staying in touch with the PR team and PR subscribers.”

Replacing Campbell as Pewter Report’s regular Bucs beat writer is Mark Cook, a freelance sportswriter, a former Pewter Report subscriber and someone who has followed the Buccaneers since 1976. Cook, who began writing for PewterReport.com during this year’s training camp, has worked with Reynolds on game days back in the Buccaneer Magazine days in the mid-1990s and is ready to work as a day-to-day reporter covering the Bucs.

“We have had great success in ‘hiring from within’ with regards to tapping into our own subscriber base for people that had an appreciation for the type of inside scoop we generate and the necessary skill set to work for Pewter Report, evidenced by the excellent work from Jim Flynn and Charlie Campbell over the past decade,” Reynolds said. “Mark has already been working hard at training camp, getting to know the coaches and players and develop his sources to give our Pewter Report readers and subscribers what they have come to expect from our coverage over the years. I think our readers will enjoy Mark’s Bucs coverage for years to come.”

Cook, who has worked in sports radio on air and behind the scenes, coached six years of high school football in Hillsborough County and is thrilled to be a part of the Pewter Report staff.

“Joining PewterReport.com is a great opportunity for me personally and professionally,” Cook said. “I have missed the game day atmosphere and the rush of getting breaking news out to the public. Growing up in the area, I have followed the Buccaneers since the days of Lee Roy Selmon and Rickey Bell. I look forward to giving my personal insight and perspective of the Buccaneers to the fans.

“PewterReport.com has been a place I would personally go to first when I needed Buccaneers news and now I feel very fortunate to be part of an incredible team.”

Pewter Report will also have Eric Horchy and Andrew Scavelli serve as contributing writers during football season with Eric Dellaratta contributing with draft coverage during the season and the offseason. Horchy, who will be a regular fixture at One Buccaneer Place and Raymond James Stadium during football season, has extensive experience covering high school football for the Tampa Tribune and has been a lifelong NFL fan.

Victoria Horchak will be Pewter Report’s intern for the 2011 season and will assist in editorial coverage as well at One Buccaneer Place.

    Good luck CC. It was good having you on board while it lasted. Not everyone follows their passion when choosing a job, but I respect those who do so. Also, congrads on the new hires; welcome aboard. Go Bucs!

    Progress is always sought, change is not always good, but they both look alike. This is that. Good luck Charlie, and let's keep going Scott. I think Pewter Report is doing fine.

    owlykat: Joe Gibbs was not the offensive coordinator in 1979 when the Bucs shocked the world and defeated the Eagles in the play-offs. Bill Nelson was the de facto offensive coordinator that year since Joe Gibbs left after the 1978 season to become offensive coordinator of the Chargers and ultimately to become head coach of the Redskins. Joe's contribution to the Central Division champions was his recommendation to draft Doug Williams but he had nothing to do with the historical victory. Anyone seen Wolf Heard?

    Charlie, I guess it wasn't a coincidence to run into you and Andy at TC. I ipersonally will miss your presence and your very insightful columns. Great good luck at Walter. I know you'll be a huge success. Gee getting married, new job....what's next? Andy. Congratulations to you on joining the staff. I admire the way you've followed your passion and I look to enjoy watching you develop into a force as a Bucs commentor. Your mom has got to continue to be very proud....good luck to you as well. I almost didn't recognize you at TC you've grown into such a fine young man. Scott. I know you'll cocntinue to publish at the high level we've all come to know and love. Seems like change has been in the air this year for all things football. Thanks again for the good work you are doing for the unsatiables like moi~ lol.

    I wish you great success at Walterfootball.com and look forward to reading your predictions and analysis. Thank you for your great work here. I'll miss you on 1010, too.

    I know first hand that Pewter Report is the best news in town on the Bucs and has been for many years. As far as breaking news this is the most unusual football season we have ever had. The whole spring was condensed into one week. If you read the papers for your Bucs news shame on you, you are not getting the best. I know I read sport pages every day.

    i would agree with JayBuc52, the Pewter Report has slowly become less informative and accurate over the years. Key staff departures and now a $5 subscription makes me question how things are really going. I doubt i'll renew as they rarely have a "scoop" on anything. Reynolds seems more focused on being seen and less on the quality of the product.

    Dear Charlie, You have done such a super job, and I am sorry to see you go. Good luck at WalterFootball! Glad to hear you have hired a former football coach who has followed the Bucs since 1976. I have too, and was sitting in the old sombrero when the Bucs upset the Philadelphia Eagles in their first ever playoff game, when our offensive coordinator (who went on to win three super bowls as head coach of the Redskins, before founding his NASCAR team) surprised Philly by rolling out Williams from the pocket and pulled off a brilliant victory. Mark, welcome aboard!

    Thanks for the kind words owlykat. I have a lot to live up to following Charlie. I remember that Philly game like it was yesterday. Bell sweeping in for the first TD. Bucs scored on thier opening drive if my old mind isn't failing me. So many great memories of those orange (I hate the word creamsicle!) and white uniforms. Anyway thanks for being a follower of PewterReport and please dont hesitate to email me or Facebook me or even twitter(markcook1970). Love discussing the team, current or old. Any suggestions please pass along. Scott has one goal and that is to serve the fans, so we encourage suggestions man.

    Good Luck and Best Wishes, Charlie. The good news is you won't be going far as WalterFootball is my website of choice for draft info. Again, keep up the good work!!!

    Charlie, I hate to see you go. But, congratulations and Godspeed on your new adventure at Walterfootball. Mark, Eric and Andrew, Welcome!!! I look forward to reading your articles about the Bucs. Thanks for all you do.

    While his analisys of the draft on behalf of the Bucs will be missed, perhaps PR will go back to reporting more on current Bucs rather than spending so much time on college players that may or may not become Bucs.

    Charlie, the best to you. All you guys at PR try your best. That's all we can ask. Don't take it personally if an Article is criticize. Go PR!

    Charlie: It's been a pleasure. Semper Fi
