Jeff White

If you follow Virginia sports, then Cavalier News Beat should be a regular part of your online reading list. As director of news content for, veteran sportswriter Jeff White (Col ’85) produces a steady stream of articles and blog entries about the Hoos. White’s position was created by the athletics department to enhance coverage of UVA sports and to fill a void left by shrinking newspapers.

Though he’s an “in-house” reporter, don’t expect to find sugarcoated information on the site. “Jeff will have a great deal of latitude in covering our sports,” Jon Oliver, executive associate director of athletics, said when the site was launched last summer.

“For two-plus decades, I’ve prided myself on being a fair and responsible reporter, and I have no intention of changing my approach,” White wrote on his first day on the job.
