Rodney Hartman was all things to sports journalism: informed and knowledgeable writer, editor, teacher, biographer, mentor, sounding board and confidant. When the news came on the morning of the 19th of May 2010 that he had lost his long battle with cancer, tributes began to pour in from all who had known and respected him. Rodney ('Rodders' or 'Harters' to those who knew him best) had an indelible influence on South African sports journalism and, indeed, journalism as a whole. Collected in Rodney Hartman: The Show Must Go On are some of Rodney's best columns from his time at The Star, pieces which editor Moegsien Williams describes as 'essential reading for anyone interested in sport and a master class for aspiring young journalists'. With a Foreword by Ali Bacher and Essays by Archie Henderson, Kevin McCallum and Kevin Ritchie.
