Leadership Luncheon

    For 18 years, the PTA has hosted a Sports Leadership Luncheon as its first member event of the year. It has featured a nationally recognized sports personality, athlete or newscaster. This is also the event at which PTA members can purchase tickets to San Francisco Giants home games.

    This year, we are delighted to feature KTVU Sports Director Mark Ibanez, who will speak on "The Sporting Life," which is his nightly sign-off and a description of his remarkable 40-year career in sports broadcasting. 

    Raised in Marin County and a graduate of the University of Idaho, he joined KTVU in 1979 and as both a reporter and anchor, has covered numerous Super Bowls and World Series and visited every major sports venue in the country.

    Ibanez—a three-time Emmy winner—will give insights on local sports teams and the changing landscape of sports coverage and news reporting.

    Noon to 1:15 pm
