PITTSBURGH – For the second year in a row, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ media relations department has been nominated for the Pete Rozelle Award for Pro Football Writers of America.
“Under the leadership of Director of Communications Burt Lauten and his team of Michael Bertsch, Angela Tegnelia and Alissa Cavaretta, the Steelers’ communications department continues to rank among the best in the business,” the PFWA wrote.
The award is given to media relations staff who âconsistently strive for excellence in their media relationsâ.
For the second year in a row, the Steelers media relations staff have been nominated for the award. The group has won the award twice in previous years, once in 1991 and again in 2015. They have been nominated four times – 1990, 2006, 2009 and 2020.
Last year, the staff of the Indianapolis Colts took home the award.
Rozelle began his journey in the NFL as public relations manager for the Los Angeles Rams from 1952 to 1955. He became league commissioner in 1960-89 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.
