The founder of Press Box Publishing LLC, Meale has a master’s in journalism from Ohio University, where he wrote his thesis on racial stereotyping among men’s and women’s college basketball analysts. A Cincinnati native, he studied English and writing at Saint Louis University and has been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists for outstanding work.
