Major Broadcasting Cable Network's Sports Lifestyles, hosted by former
Major League Baseball all-star Cecil Fielder, has won an award in the sports
category for broadcast news in the 2002 National Association of Black Journalist
Awards.

The segment that won the award featured an interview with Bo Jackson, the
first two-sport (baseball and football) all-star athlete. In a rare
behind-the-scenes interview, the 1985 Heisman Trophy winner talked candidly
about topics ranging from parenting to sports.

'I am proud that the NABJ has bestowed this honor on Sports
Lifestyles
. When you receive recognition from the professionals within your
industry for your hard work and effort, it makes the win even sweeter,' Fielder
said.

MBC will reair the award-winning episode Friday, July 26 at 8
p.m.
