Sabres Owner Terry Pegula Gives Rare Public Interview, Continues To Back GM Darcy Regier
Published June 19, 2013
SOCIAL STUDIES: In Buffalo, John Vogl writes the Sabres hiring new Social Media Manager Craig Kanalley is a "coup" for the team. He generated a "substantial following as the founder of Breaking Tweets, a blog that focused on how breaking news was analyzed on Twitter." Kanalley "parlayed that into a job with the Huffington Post, which has more than 3 million Twitter followers." He said, "It was really like a no-brainer to be honest with you. I think everything kind of prepared me for this step, so I'm excited." Vogl notes Kanalley "isn't planning immediate, sweeping changes to a Twitter feed that includes everything from game updates to plugs for singers on owner Terry Pegula's record label." He promises to "listen to a vocal fan base that can be extremely critical" (BUFFALO NEWS, 6/19).
