Regal native wins Emmy award

By Michael Jacobson

Trevor Fleck, who grew up in Regal and graduated from PAHS in 1987, has won a 2002 Emmy from the Upper Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Fleck, a producer at Fox Sports Net, won the award with Dan Trubenbach for nonnews writing for a three-minute segment called Baseball Reflections, which looked at baseball fads in the 1970s and 1980s, including batting rings, uniform colors and styles, and nicknames.

Fleck, the son of Larry and Janet Fleck of Regal, earned a broadcasting degree from Southwest State University and got his start in the industry by doing an internship at WCCO-TV. That led to his working part time with WCCO and the Midwest Sports Channel (MSC). He started full time as a producer in 1994.

He started mainly by producing shows, including pregames, postgames, and coach's shows. He has produced weekly shows for Gophers football coach Glen Mason, for Gophers basketball coach Dan Monson, and Gophers hockey coach Don Lucia.

Now he is a game producer, too, meaning he directs the instant replays and communicates continually with the announcers. He was one of three producers for the Minnesota Twins this summer. Now he is one of two producers for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of two for Gophers hockey.
