Today, Tuesday, August 5th, 2014, The Helena Bighorns held their first annual Media Day hosting an official Press Conference, introducing Jon Jonasson as Head Coach and General Manager of the Bighorns to the Helena Community.
ABC/FOX, KXLH channel 9, Beartooth NBC, ESPN Radio 94.9, the Helena Independent Record and hockey blog “Biscuits and Breezers” were in attendance for the media, the strongest showing of press support in years.
This was a private event that also saw the 2014-’15 Brand Partners turn out in great numbers as well. Over 25 sponsor members had front-row seats to the biggest media event the Bighorns have held in quite some time.
Following the Presser, all members of the media stayed to have one-on-one interviews with Jon as Brand Partners enjoyed food, beverages and networking.
“It was good”, said Coach Jonasson. “Great turn out; (it is so) good to see such support for our organization. I’m very excited!”
After the event, Bighorns social sites were buzzing as post after post showed photos of the event, as well as a link to the raw video of the presser itself.
Media Day continues tonight on your local newscasts; the event officially closes with the Helena Independent Record feature in the paper tomorrow morning!
