Reminiscing on Laz 30 Years of Sports Stories

For NBC 7 Sportswrap Jim Laslavic's last show, U-T columnist Nick Canepa reflects on some of the stories they've both worked on.

Laz has traveled to Super Bowls, the World Series and the Olympics in his role as Sports Director for KNSD.

Most recently, he has been the host of NBC 7’s SportsWrap Sundays following the late news.

Jim Laslavic Through the Years

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my 30 years at NBC 7. I got to work with an amazing group of professionals,” Laz said.

A graduate of Penn State University, Laslavic played for coach Joe Paterno and was inducted in the Western Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.

For the last week, 100 challenged athletes, along with some celebrity supporters — including our own Jim Laslavic — have biked from San Francisco all the way down the coast to San Diego as part of The Dodge Million Dollar Challenge. The ride is an annual fundraiser benefitting the Challenged Athletes Foundation.

He moved to San Diego in 1978 and played as a linebacker for the San Diego Chargers.

Always a good sport, he has been willing to do almost anything for charity from hosting his annual golf tournament to completing a 620-mile charity bike race or twirling on the dance floor with his daughter in a ballroom dancing event. 

NBC 7 Sports Director Jim Laslavic is going out of his comfort zone for his latest endeavor: Ballroom dancing! Jim and his daughter will hit the dance floor at the Hotel Del for a charity event to benefit Sacred Heart School. Watch his smooth moves above.
