For the past half century, Stan Fischler has covered the Ney York subway scene more intensively than any Big Apple journalist-in print and on radio and television. He began his career as subway editor of the New York Journal-American in 1955 and remained on the transit beat for a decade.
In addition to his writings on subways, Fischler has also been active on the television side. He wrote and helped produce ten features on New York's system called, "Subway Series," which won prizes for writing and production.
Apart from his work in the transportation area, Fischler is renowned in local and national sports circles as "The Hockey Maven," and is recognized as one of the most outspoken authorities on the game of hockey.
Fischler's first job out of Brooklyn College was as Rangers' publicist during the 1954-55 season. It was the first of many hockey-related positions for Fischler, who has since covered hockey either in print or on the air for more than 45 years.
Fischler, who resides in Manhattan with his wife Shirley, holds a master's degree in Education from Long Island University and has taught news and feature writing at Queens College, Columbia University and Fordham University.
