Hey, I'm Noah Pransky, one of the 10News investigative watchdogs. I love rooting out government, corporate, and community abuses.
I'm a native of Needham, Mass. and went to Boston University, where I split my time between broadcast journalism and a side job as the school's mascot.
Prior to joining 10News in 2009, I worked in sports, covering the Georgia Bulldogs for a CBS station in Northeast Georgia, then the football and spring training stories of Southwest Florida for the ABC and NBC affiliates in Fort Myers.
Since then, I've maintained the Shadow of the Stadium blog, providing perspective on Florida sports business & stadium stories. The site has been a mainstay on Forbes' list of "50 Must-Follow Sports Business Twitter Accounts."
At 10News, I've been honored with four regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for news and sports reporting, including national recognition in 2013 for exposing safety issues on youth soccer fields. And I've won 10 Emmy Awards for investigative stories, plus the national George Polk & Columbia-duPont awards in 2014 for exposing red light camera abuses.
The red light camera series not only launched a national conversation about the technology's fairness, but got many injustices fixed. Florida saw a multi-million-dollar drop in fines after the state lengthened yellow light intervals, and the improved signal engineering should help to prevent accidents at tens of thousands of intersections statewide.
When not competing for the best investigative stories in Tampa Bay, I like to dabble in competitive triathlon racing. But I've found more success as a competitive eater, winning more than a dozen pepper-, hot dog-, and tater tot-eating contests.
I loves Tampa Bay for its "big city" benefits without "big city" headaches (except I-275)...and I'd love to know what issues you think local watchdogs need to shine a brighter spotlight on!
