Ten years ago when webcasting was ‘bleeding edge’ technology, Blomeley Communications, Sympatico/MSN and Bell StartCast teamed up to create and deliver one of the first NHL post game webcasts. An NHL internet first entitled ‘Behind the Bench’. BTB was initially produced following Toronto Maple Leaf home games with reports and interviews with then Head Coach Pat Quinn. The following season we launched the Ottawa Senators version of ‘Behind The Bench’ with Jacques Martin and then a couple of years later with Bryan Murray.
The Ottawa shows were hosted by Gord Wilson, the voice of Ottawa Senators Radio, Don Cherry’s Grapevine, and the NHLA Gala. Gord’s great work on ‘Behind the Bench’ helped to establish him as one of sports radio’s most consistent and versatile personalities.
Today the Ottawa Senators have advanced the IPTV program and have created a great integrated VIP Experience. Fans can purchase VIP seating, with a VIP lounge and dinner, and VIP seating for the live post game All-Access webcasts! www.senators.nhl.com
This 2014-15 season will be Gord’s tenth year as host of the post game webcasts.
