World Biography Now: The best Pitt, Duquesne and WPIAL news and recruiting coverage.

Founded by Mike Vukovcan and Joe Steigerwald in November of 2015, World Biography Now has exploded onto the World Biography news scene to become one of the few destination sites for Pitt, Duquesne, RMU and WPIAL fans. Using his insider knowledge and connections, Mike has cultivated a dedicated readership who count on him to deliver breaking recruiting news before anyone else. Not just a “fan” blog, World Biography Now goes beyond the amateur analysis sometimes found in the Pittsburgh blogosphere to deliver news and exclusive interviews not found anywhere else.
