You may have been wondering who that guy was doing Facebook Live videos on Pickleball518. That is Mark Vinciguerra, president of Capital Region Independent Media. I have partnered with Mark and his talented team to increase the reach of Pickleball518. Mark and I worked together at the Albany Times Union, where he was director of audience development. He is also a pickleball player – you may have seen him at Impact.
Mark comes from a racquetball background, and once served as director of media outreach for the International Racquetball Tour.
Mark and the team at Capital Region Independent Media will be selling advertising and sponsorship opportunities in the Pickleball518 newsletter and website. So if you own a local business or are planning a pickleball event and want to promote it, reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 518-859-6353.
Announcements about pickleball activities will always be free on Pickleball518, but it you are looking a little more, contact Mark.
