Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA - The Tri-City Americans, in partnership with KNDU/SWX, announced today a joint agreement on a monthly Americans Coaches Show for the upcoming 2012-13 season.  The half-hour show will air once a month, starting in September and running through March, and will be broadcast live across the region on KNDU's over-the-air digital channels 25.3/23.3 and Charter Channel 287 in the Tri-Cities and Yakima.

The show, hosted by Craig West and Jim Foley, will be broadcast live from Kimo's Sports Restaurant starting at 7:00 p.m. and will feature in-depth interviews with Tri-City Head Coach Jim Hiller, players and other hockey operations staff, as well as a Hockey 101 feature.  Additionally, fans in attendance will have the option to submit questions to be asked on-air.  As an added bonus, fans unable to watch in person or on TV can watch the show live on their smartphones by downloading the free Syncbak app, available on Android and iPhone devices.

"We're very excited to expand SWX programming with the Americans Coaches show," exclaimed Christine Brown, KNDU-TV General Manager.  "The addition of Kimo's as our restaurant partner offers a fun, live location.  You'll get behind the scenes information about the Americans directly from Coach Hiller and players."

"In celebrating our 25th Anniversary, we are thrilled to be working with KNDU/SWX on this new opportunity for our fans to connect with the team and staff," said Americans' VP of Business Operations and Marketing Communications Dan Mulhausen.  "This show promises to provide an informative and interactive look at what is going on behind the scenes."
