Pittsburg reporter honored for arts coverage

PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — A longtime reporter for the Pittsburg Morning Sun has been honored by the local theater community for her coverage of the arts.

Nikki Patrick began covering theater and other arts events for the southeast Kansas newspaper in 1967. It’s a career that has given her a seat in the house to cover nearly every dress rehearsal of local performances.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports (http://bit.ly/16UmsO6 ) that practice is so well known that it is referred to locally as “Nikki Night.”

On Wednesday she was invited to the opening of “Steel Magnolias,” where the Pittsburg Community Theater presented her with a special award thanking her for her dedication.

The city of Pittsburg’s Memorial Hall also will have its green room renamed in Patrick’s honor.
