from Jon Wiener, VP/ Executive Producer
You may have noticed a stream of new special content and a few fresh faces recently at Bash Brothers Media.
We certainly hope you did 🙂
- There was our ‘Featured’ profiles by Torsheta Jackson on coaching greats Thomas Billups and Lafayette Stribling.
- Our podcast and post series on Mississippi’s takeover of the NFL Combine, driven by new guy ’Insider Joe’ Simeone.
- Wall-to-wall special coverage of the state basketball tournament at The Big House.
- The weekly ‘Take Five’ installment: from the MSU women to saving Devin Booker, freshman pitching studs and big-time golf, it’s all there.
It’s all another part of our goal to give Mississippi sports fans and beyond the quality content they deserve in the digital age. Last fall we released our first two feature documentary films, “The University of South Panola (USP)” and “The Vet,” as part of the ‘Between the Pines: Mississippi’s Greatest Sports Stories” series. We are thrilled about the positive response and ratings, and excited about the next ones. (Stay tuned!)
But we want to connect and tell our stories on a more regular basis. So we have expanded our team and operation this year to deliver quality multimedia content all the time, direct to you. We won’t be covering beats or breaking news. We simply want to provide special content about Mississippi sports and more — top stories, big events, important people, untold tales — that informs, excites and entertains.
You can watch, listen and read it all on “The Hard Drive powered by Waterview Hotel and Casino” at bashbrothersmedia.com/theharddrive and of course our social media platforms. We will be launching a redesign of this page within days, but you can enjoy the content right away. (Shoutout to our terrific graphic designer Alex Gant – alexgant.net).
Be on the lookout for a few other exciting productions set to launch in the coming days: a new podcast, “Up Front with Robert Chapman,” whose first guest is WWE wrestling great “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, and “The Sports Lounge,” a weekly online video show with me and former WAPT sports director Ray Coleman.
Then there’s our special March Madness promotion: Mississippi’s Greatest March Madness bracket! It’s the bracket contest you’ve been waiting for.
We know you will like the content and our new contributors, and hope you’ll check it all out and share with your friends.
