Chuck Bloom

Chuck Bloom is a retired former award-winning community journalist who was active in Texas journalism for almost 30 years.

Born and raised in Detroit, Mich., he attended the University of Michigan during tumultuous times (Class of 1974), was assistant sports editor of the Michigan Daily and spent 2 ½ years a student assistant in the U-M sports information department.

He arrived in Texas in 1976 to begin his journalistic career as sports editor/columnist of the Conroe Daily Courier in suburban Houston and worked for newspapers in the Texas Gulf Coast, Hill Country and suburban Dallas.

He also owned and operated several small community newspapers in South Texas for almost 14 years.

Health issues forced his retirement, but he wrote a monthly column for the Collin County Opinions section of the Dallas Morning News and maintains a somewhat consistent blog – chuckbloom.blogspot.com.

During his career, he has earned more than 75 first-place state and regional press awards, four times as the state’s top columnist in his division and four times his papers were named best in Texas. In his career, Bloom penned more than 1,500 columns.

He also exclusively interviewed a host of celebrities and politicians, from boxing legend Muhammed Ali to actress Farrah Fawcett (in her “Charlie’s Angels” halcyon days), tennis legends John Newcombe and Rod Laver, football greats like Earl Campbell and Bum Phillips, golf superstars like Lee Trevino, former president George W.H. Bush and former Texas governor Ann Richards.

In addition to his newspaper career, Bloom served as a city councilman in Nixon, president of his chamber of commerce, as a member of the Lancaster Charter Review and Downtown Revitalization Commissions, president of two Texas regional press associations, director of Texas Press Association and president of the Lancaster Lions Club. Today, he is actively involved in the annual North Texas Irish Festival and as a volunteer with the Samaritan Inn, the only homeless shelter in Collin County, Texas.

In 1985, he was named Citizen of the Year by the Nixon Area Chamber of Commerce.

He is the father of three children and grandfather, and has been married to his wife, Jodie, for nine years.

His passion for U-M (sports) started around the same time he first realized he liked to write: early on in high school. In his freshman year at Warren De La Salle — that’s right: Shane Morris’ DLS — was 1991. The Fab Five were freshmen that year too, just about an hour north of his Macomb County home. He wanted to be Mitch Albom, as he read his columns each week in this old-timey thing called the newspaper.

As for Wolverines football, his first crystal memory is unfortunately a bad one — he was working in the bottle room of the local grocery store (old man alert: this was before bottle machines. He had to count your bottles and then separate them himself!) and it was a Saturday afternoon shift. He flipped on the crappy little radio back there and heard Beckman’s voice. Michigan was playing Colorado. 1994. Fall of his senior year. He knew he wanted to go to U-M and he knew they were playing a big game that day but he could only watch the first half because of work. Well, he tuned in just in time to hear the fateful, heartbreaking ending in the Big House.

But he has no complaints because just three short years later, it was the happiest of emotions as he — now a junior at the Greatest F-in University on Planet Earth — leapt from the first row of the student section down onto the grass field (yes, it was still real grass then) and celebrated with a sea of fellow fans our first perfect regular season in nearly half a century. Michigan 20, The Enemy 14. Nothing, obviously, has ever been as good since as a fan.
