“The media roundtable features a chance for the media to learn about important CHSAA initiatives and meet new Director of Digital Media Director Brad Cochi, as well as Assistant Digital Media Director Dan Whitaker, who are now overseeing media relations,” said Commissioner Rhonda-Blanford Green.
All participants in attendance wearing game jerseys/uniforms and will be available for interviews including both time on the podium and one-on-one opportunities.
