  • Phantoms hire Owen Newkirk

    Amid all the coaching buzz on Tuesday, I* confirmed with team*co-owner Rob Brooks that the Phantoms have hired Owen Newkirk as their public relations point man.

    Newkirk held that job, as well as the*radio play-by-play duties*with the Albany River Rats, for the last few years. Albany laid him off as a budget cut following last season.

    As I wrote here a few months ago, this is one of the most common sense hires the Phantoms could make. Newkirk did a good in Albany, wanted to stay in the area, and has plenty of contacts in the*local media. He’s also a strong play-by-play voice. This is a good get for the Phantoms.

    More on this and other things going on with the operational end of the team soon.
