Change in StarNews coverage
Hey everyone, it's Alex Riley over at the StarNews. Just wanted to drop you a note as we're having a shift in where "blog" material goes. Last school year, everything went to Facebook Notes on our page. It's now reverting back to the The Dub Hub blog. So, with that in mind, head to The Dub Hub for all the blog stuff. Everything I write for the blog or regular website, as well as videos, photos and anything else, will still be available on the Facebook page so don't forget to visit there or find me on Twitter - @AlexRileySN. Thanks and talk to you soon.

RE: Change in StarNews coverage
I really enjoy the Beat and the Beard! Y'all are terrific. I enjoy the UNCW sports talk, especially UNCW hoops and baseball and also where to eat segment. Some of it was really entertaining. I especially liked the episode when the Beard was talking about going to a place at Wrightsville Beach and having a good time, but had concern that the bar area was very close to where families were also there too. It bothered him that they were pounded some beers with small kids around. It was an interesting dynamic that was slightly uncomfortable reliving, but one that all of us have encountered as a young man that was out and about. It's cool to here about how y'all feel about things in general. I like hearing the fight song to begin. And, you really need to expand how y'all feel about the WWE and other wrestling stuff...that's always good.

UNCW is very blessed to have such good programs such as men's hoops and baseball. This is a special place that for some reason rises UNCW's programs to levels that other similar programs seem to never get to. Yes, the location does make it special,no doubt, but there's more to it. Growing up in Wilmington and in the shadow of such great basketball and baseball programs, there's always been a hunger and I really think that has an impact on the passion that the fans have. It's a really crazy place, the only game in town and it makes for a great experience.

Keep up the "Beat and the Beard" will you? Its a cool show. The CAA baseball tourney focused on "Superfan Beard" when he was doing his crazy dance about the 7th inning. That was fun to see and it was cool that he had a sidekick along with him. The announcers couldn't believe it, but we could, we're all in and glad to have such cool and great fans!

We're not going anywhere. Head over to Facebook.com/StarNewsUNCW on Wednesday at noon. Mike and I will be talking with the new strength and conditioning director. We're also going to record the audio and put it in the podcast.

RE: Change in StarNews coverage
I'll be brutally honest here, I live out of town as most of you already know. Going to some of those Facebook links or even Star News links through this site sometimes that require a subscription... not happening. As much as I love Seahawk sports, I give to the Seahawk Club and that's about it for that. I have four little mouths to feed, and I'm not gonna drop money on an out of town local newspaper subscription.

I loved all of Alex's fb live feeds. Hope stuff like that continues during the season as well.

RE: Change in StarNews coverage
To be fair - I want you to subscribe to the StarNews, at least digitally. But, if an out of town paper doesn't work, subscribe locally. Might not be any UNCW content, but at least you'll keep my fellow scribes from starving. #SupportLocalMedia (And yes, the Facebook Live pregame/postgame stuff will be back for basketball season)

The star news is not a good paper.it does not cover the local area news and sports very good and I have come close to dropping the paper.

I also feel the same way about local tv stations.1 1/2 hrs news or more at night and they should cover more local events instead of repeating what is on national news.

RE: Change in StarNews coverage
To be fair the Star News has always done a tremendous job with UNCW basketball and Alex is carrying on that tradition

Look at other teams in our conference. Outside of Charleston and the VA duo the local coverage they get is pretty much zilch. Most mid majors would love to get the local attention we get
