Sam King http://redriverradio.org en Veteran sportswriter Sam King brings 'Tiger Beat' to Shreveport http://redriverradio.org/post/veteran-sportswriter-sam-king-brings-tiger-beat-shreveport <p>The Baton Rouge newspaperman who covered LSU football and basketball for 35 years is coming to Shreveport. From Sam King’s beginnings in the mid-50s at the "State-Times" before it merged with "The Advocate," he’d spend night and day hammering out stories. His signature cigar in his mouth. He’s the author of&nbsp; "Tiger Beat." It’s an illustrated history of LSU’s football and basketball programs through King’s eyes.</p><p></p> Thu, 22 Aug 2013 17:52:50 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 32406 at http://redriverradio.org Veteran sportswriter Sam King brings 'Tiger Beat' to Shreveport
