Jayson Moy, general manager of U.S. College Hockey Online and radio voice for numerous Rensselaer sports, is the recipient of the 2001 ECAC Ice Hockey Media Recognition Award, the ECAC announced today.
The annual award, which was created in 1998, recognizes a member of the media who via their media coverage and contributions is an advocate of ECAC Hockey. Recipients are chosen from nominations presented by the league’s sports information directors and contacts.
“Jayson is a consummate professional and very deserving of the award,” said Steve Hagwell, Associate Commissioner for Men’s Ice Hockey. “Through his efforts, coverage of ECAC Hockey in all leagues, men and women, has increased dramatically. The award is a fitting tribute to his tireless efforts on behalf of the conference and the sport of hockey.”
Moy has covered the ECAC for U.S. College Hockey Online since the online entity’s inception nearly six years ago. He currently is entering his third season as general manager of USCHO.com. During his tenure as general manager, U.S. College Hockey Online has increased its page views to more than two million per month. The online entity has also realized tremendous growth and coverage of ECAC women’s and Division III hockey during his tenure.
From a broadcasting standpoint, Moy is embarking on year No. 10 as the voice of the Engineers’ hockey program. In addition to serving as the radio voice for hockey, he also handles duties for football, baseball, basketball and lacrosse.
