Los Angeles, CA, March 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The InterSports Network is proud to announce the addition of Carrie Milbank, a model and current host of "The Hockey Show" featured on NHL.com. Milbank is also an aspiring television and online broadcaster in the worlds of sports and entertainment, and she recently launched her new web site www.OfficialCarrieMilbank.com on the IS Network.
"Having Carrie Milbank as our spokeswoman for the IS network brings a fun, bright fresh female out look to the sports world," InterSports CEO Lin Milano said. "We are thrilled to have her as part of our network."
One of the main reasons Milbank joined the InterSports team was the opportunity she had to gain easier access to her newest "teammates" - the growing family of athletes who are part of the IS Network, including Hockey Hall of Famer Bryan Trottier, T.J. Oshie, Willie O'Ree and twins Peter and Chris Ferraro.
"Joining the InterSports Network is a thrilling new venture for me because, like the IS Network team, I see enormous potential for online media growth in the world I'm most familiar with, sports & entertainment," Milbank said. "The sky is the limit with this remarkably dynamic team."
"The IS team built my new website from the ground up. They not only hit a home run, they hit the grand slam that won the World Series as far as my little world is concerned."
Milbank is excited about showing and telling the world about a side of athletes they might not otherwise ever get to know. She will be text and video-blogging on the latest juice in the sports world or whatever topic happens to inspire her. In the near future, Milbank said she would also like to set up an open line of communication with her fans and blog about the questions they have for her.
"Whatever they care about, I care about," said Milbank, referencing her fans. "I've never had an outlet to do that before now, so I'm very much looking forward to connecting to the people who are curious about what Carrie Milbank has to say.
"My new site is an up-to-the-minute, interactive, fan-friendly, 'all things Carrie' zone. It features the latest videos I've produced for my current hosting gig 'The Hockey Show' on NHL.com, photo galleries, interviews, text and video blogs, appearances, commericals...basically whatever I'm up to on the career-front."
Milbank is extremely grateful for the chance to work with Milano and her team, and she thinks InterSports will soon become one of the top web sites for sports fans worldwide.
"The creative minds behind the scenes are professional, hip, original, brilliant, speedy, accessible, and best of all a joy to work with," Milbank said. "I am so proud of my site, not only because it spotlights my career And shows off nuances my personality, but also because it stands right alongside IS Network's family of athletes. That is quite an honor for this starry-eyed girl from Texas who started from scratch with nothing but a dream.
"I've been in the 'biz' for less than a decade but getting here has been a lifelong journey. I like knowing that, in teaming up with InterSports, I've become part of something special that I just can't help but spread the word about. I believe we are on our way to becoming the ultimate sports fan destination."
