Last February, I had the great honor of becoming a member of the Professional Hockey Writers Association (PHWA; for more on that, see Indulge Me For A Few Moments) and just seven months later, another honor has come my way.
Roderick has all the connections and gets all the inside scoops on what’s happening behind the scenes at all the radio and television stations here in the Los Angeles area as well as at all the local newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and all the papers owned by MediaNews Group, including the Daily News and Long Beach Press-Telegram, among others.
In short, if you want to know what’s happening behind the scenes in our local media, LA Observed is the first web site you should check out.
Although I have never met Roderick (despite the fact that we both happen to work at UCLA), I do know that he follows hockey and he took the time to mention various hockey-related blogs/web sites in town, including Frozen Royalty.
Indeed, while it is not on the same level as becoming a member of the PHWA, being mentioned on Roderick’s site is an honor nevertheless, and it provides greater exposure for my work.
Thank you to Kevin Roderick for recognizing Frozen Royalty!
