Mike Calamusa

Went 168 MPH at Sears Point Raceway. Swam with sharks in Lake Nicaragua. Inducted into the Rte. 66 Hall of Fame

I’ve played baseball, basketball, football, tennis and rugby since I was a kid. Now I’m a golfer and a runner. Oh, and a car guy! It’s kind of natural for me to want to play in the sports industry, so I have fun at SportStars. Professionally, I have more than 30 years of media company experience including roles as CEO, president, publisher, sales manager and executive board member. All that and I still don’t have a hole-in-one!
