It’s been an exciting year for Salt City Hoops. 364 days ago, Spencer Hall announced he had been hired as the News Director at KSL.com, and chose myself as successor to the Salt City Hoops Managing Editor position.
In the last year, we’ve made a lot of changes to the site. Spencer and I immediately hired a staff of writers to provide daily content, and they’ve done a fantastic job.[ref]Seriously, thanks to Dan, Laura, David, Ben, Clint, Denim, Scott, Kyle, and the rest for your time and your writing. I have been informed and entertained, and I know from our readers that I’m not alone.[/ref] We’ve posted over 400 articles in the last year on all sorts of topics in Jazzland. We’ve also expanded our coverage: we sent a writer to interview players and coaches at every home game last season, and are sending SCH writers to cover other big Jazz events. [ref]For example, myself and SCH Saturday Show host attended the MIT Sloan conference, and Dan Clayton will be attending the Draft Lottery tomorrow and the Draft itself on June 26th.[/ref] In the winter, we released a new site design, hopefully making our site better looking and easier to use.[ref]Here’s what Salt City Hoops used to look like.[/ref] We also made T-Shirts.
Last Friday, I went on the Bill and Hans Show to announce a new partnership with ESPN700, the ESPN Radio affiliate in Salt Lake City. The gist: ESPN700 will be highlighting Salt City Hoops with a new radio show, a new podcast, and featuring Salt City Hoops writers on other ESPN700 shows. You’ll be able to find our content on both Salt City Hoops and ESPN700’s website, and we’ll be able to use their studios for recording, meaning much better audio (and soon video!) quality. More info on this (including show times) will be coming, but we’re very excited.
Tomorrow begins Year 2 of Salt City Hoops 2.0, and in a continuing effort to make SCH the best Jazz site on the Internet, I’m looking to you, our readership, for feedback.
Please, please, comment below and let me know what you think. If you’d like to keep your feedback private, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. With your help, we can make Year 2 of Salt City Hoops 2.0 the best it can be.
