Hello, and welcome to my webpage. I hope you enjoy your visit.
My name is Drew Blevins and I the Vice President of Media Relations for the Carolina Thunderbirds of the Federal Prospects Hockey League. I also serve as the television and radio host for the team, as well as being an account executive.
I am a proud graduated of North Carolina State University with a major in communication media and a minor in journalism.
My passion is for accurate and engaging sports coverage. It is my belief that a well-covered sports team helps create a stronger community, builds fan bases and enhances the positive experience of athletics for everyone involved.
I have had many experiences in sports and sports journalism that have shaped me into who I am today. For four years, I worked at PACKTV at N.C. State serving as “The Voice of Wolfpack Ice Hockey.” While at N.C. State. I also called games for NCAA Division I men’s and women’s soccer and softball as well as other club sports such as baseball, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball and rugby.
Furthermore, at N.C. State I created and developed “The Takeaway” a series of blogs recapping and detailing Wolfpack football and men’s basketball. In my final two years, I started and served as an on-air host for “The Howler” a weekly podcast about N.C. State athletics both past and present
Outside of college, I have served as the Director of Media Relations and play-by-play voice for the Coastal Plain League’s Wilson Tobs and the Assistant Director of Media Relations and play-by-play voice for the United States Premier Hockey League’s Carolina Eagles.
At both of these places I wrote informational game notes and stat packages as well as called the game over the internet. In Wilson, I developed brand identities over social media as well as fostering quality relationships with the local and league media sources.
