It wasn't too many years ago when the morning after a Nashville Predators game that you would have to hunt in the Nashville Tennessean to find out what happened the night before. That is no longer the case.
Thanks to Kevin Wilson, the Predators' Manager of Hockey Communication, with the support of the Pred's management and ownership groups, there has never been more coverage of the team than there is this year.
Being a "non traditional market" where the main stream media has a long history of being focused on football 24/7/365, the Predators looked for new ways to reach fans. Last season, they reached out to the Internet media with the official establishment of "Blogger's Row."
Their efforts have blossomed this season with a large stable of writers covering games and practices to produce a quantity and quality of stories that are unprecedented in franchise history.
