Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis was interviewed by XM radio this morning. For those of you unfamiliar with him or new to this blog, Leonsis is very supportive to Caps bloggers in the DC area and allows many of them full team access, equal to what professional journalists enjoy with the team. When asked about his bloggers and blogging in general, the electronic savvy owner was quick to defend his strategy concerning the new media.
During the interview he was quoted as saying, "I think any teams that disregard bloggers do so at their own peril." Strong words, but who am I to argue with the media mogul? Thanks to Kukla's Korner, you can listen to the interview here. Mr. Leonsis also has his own blog, "Ted's Take" which is linked here.
