Media Blitz \'12-13
A long-standing Canes preseason tradition is the annual “media blitz,” where we try to visit a number of local television and radio stations to promote Opening Night.

For obvious reasons, we’re a little more limited with what we can squeeze into an extremely quick training camp, but we’ve already hit a few media outlets in the past week, and we have some more planned. Below is a quick run-down of this year’s blitz. I will edit this blog with any additions to the agenda, as well as links to interviews after they happen.

Friday, Jan. 11

  • G105 – Head Coach Kirk Muller visited G105’s Bob and the Showgram in-studio last Friday. It starts around the 4:30 mark here.
  • 100.7 The River – Muller also visited The River’s Kitty Kinnin in-studio last Friday. Watch that interview here.
