The SwampDogs are pleased to announce Nick Marek as the voice of the team for the 2013 season.
Nick Marek is a rising senior studying journalism and mass communication at Arizona State University. Despite going to school out west, Marek has lived in Chapel Hill since he was four years old so he understands what North Carolina baseball is all about.
While at Arizona State, Marek co-founded the Walter Cronkite Sports Network (WCSN) with a few of his peers and he is currently the Vice President of the broadcasting department. The WCSN is a group of aspiring sports journalists who cover ASU athletics. The SwampDogs newest broadcaster used his club to produce a variety of print and online sports stories. He is also one of the website managers of Cronkite Sports.
Lastly, Marek is a featured baseball, hockey, and football writer for House of Sparky, a Sports Blog Nation affiliate.
“I am so humbled to be a part of such a prestigious team in the Coastal Plain League and I cannot wait to start working with the Fayetteville SwampDogs,” Marek said.
“We’ve been very fortunate in Fayetteville to have an incredible group of broadcasters in the past,” said SwampDogs general manager Jeremy Aagard. “We have the utmost confidence that Nick will continue that trend and be able to take the SwampDogs media relations to a whole new level. With his experience and positive attitude, we’re looking forward to the best summer yet for our fans listening in from across the country.”
“One of the reasons I’m so excited about this summer is that I will be living out my dream,” Marek said. “I’m not only confident about my career, but that I will be able to bring some new things to this organization.”
Marek will make each home broadcast interactive by accepting emails and tweets from fans. Make sure you don’t miss a moment of the action by logging onto goswampdogs.com and clicking the CPL Webpass link.
