Coach Mike Bianco | 2022 Ole Miss College World Series Championship

Since joining Ole Miss Rebels Baseball in 2000, Coach Mike Bianco has proven that diligence definitely pays off. Synonymous with the national pastime, the winningest coach in the program’s history has solidified his place in history, alongside other baseball legends. Now in his 22nd season, after two Hall of Fame inductions from Seminole High School and Indian River Community College, two appearances in the College World Series, and named Collegiate Baseball National Coach of the Year twice for 2020 and 2022, the number 2 has somewhat proven itself to be a divine digit for the Ole Miss Rebel baseball team. With the bases loaded, he is here to talk about his life, his passion for the game, what the future holds and why he’s as rare as a triple play.

James Meredith: Breaking the Barrier | Celebrating the 60th Anniversary

James Howard Meredith, American civil rights activist, writer, political adviser, and Air Force veteran, inspired by President John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, was the first African-American student admitted to the former racially segregated University of Mississippi. Today, we’re celebrating the diamond anniversary of his enrollment at Ole Miss with a few of the contributors from his newest book, “James Meredith: Breaking the Barrier” - Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Meredith’s 1962 enrollment at the U of M. The book, edited by Ole Miss journalism professor, Dr. Kathleen W. Wickham, features contributors: Dorothy Gilliam, the first African American reporter hired by the Washington Post and Sidna Brower Mitchell, former student-editor of The (Daily) Mississippian whose editorial calling for calm, received a Pulitzer Prize nomination. Marshall sits down with each of them, to discuss the book and their own contributions connected to this historic paradigm shift in Mississippi and U.S. history. Marshall Ramsey, a nationally recognized editorial cartoonist, shares his cartoons and travels the state as Mississippi Today’s Editor-At-Large. He’s also host of a "Now You're Talking" on MPB Think Radio and "Conversations" on MPB TV, and is the author of several books. Marshall is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a 2019 recipient of the University of Tennessee Alumni Professional Achievement Award.
