For many years he worked as a TV commentator
for the Austrian Broadcasting Company ORF,
and was head of the sports section of the daily newspaper "Kronen Zeitung". In 2003 he became
chief editor of the whole newspaper.
After leaving the "Krone" after 50 years he now works for the weekly magazine NEWS.
Michael Kuhn has also been a long-standing member of the Executive Committee of the Austrian Sports Journalists Association (now Sports Media Austria). Before the death of the legendary Josef "Pepi" Strabl in 1997, Michael was vice president; after Strabl’s passing he was elected as the new president. Now, over fifteen years later, Michael wants to become a candidate for one more period as president in 2013 at the National Congress.
The small country of Austria and Michael Kuhn’s Sports Media Austria were organizers of two AIPS congresses: the 70th Congress in 2007 in Bregenz, and the 75th Congress in 2012 in Innsbruck. At both congresses Michael was chief of the organizing committee, and especially after the second one in Tyrol, AIPS and a lot of their delegates were very satisfied with the Congress.
Michael Kuhn is also honoured by a golden award from the Republic of Austria
("Goldenes Ehrenzeichen für Verdienste
um die Republik Österreich").
He will celebrate his birthday in a traditional Vienna wine house called "Heuriger" with a lot of friends, where everybody will tell him: "Michael Kuhn, you are the best."
