Pete CunninghamSports Director Staff
Pete(r) Cunningham is sports director at AnnArbor.com and is originally from Tecumseh, MI. He has been a member of the AnnArbor.com sports staff since the launch of the company in the summer of 2009. Cunningham graduated from Tecumseh High School in 2002 and from the University of Toronto in 2006 with an honors bachelor of science degree in psychology and English. While at U of T, Cunningham learned an honors degree in Canada simply means you had two majors and indicates nothing about academic standing (stupid jokes are how he copes with the awkwardness of writing in the third person.) Cunningham wrote for both The Varsity and The Newspaper: U of Ts Independent Weekly, while at U of T. He illegally voted in the 2006 Canadian General Election for a story on voter requirements. The story received national coverage, but it also led to the Canadian government prosecuting Cunningham on charges of voter fraud. Luckily, a kind and understanding judge dismissed the case. Cunningham's first professional journalism job was as news editor at The Homer Index in Homer, MI. Before working at The Index, Cunningham lived in Lexington, KY where he was a substitute teacher and an assistant wrestling coach at Tates Creek High School (Go Commodores!) On the side, Cunningham enjoys soccer and wrestling. He once held a few wrestling records at Tecumseh High School, but they have all since been broken and he has moved on.
