The Dauphin Kings are moving into a new era of managing its hockey club, and are thrilled to announce the hiring of their first full-time Director of Marketing and Media Relations. Christian Laughland will join the club on May 1st.
Laughland is no stranger to the sport community in Dauphin. In his capacity as the Sports Director with local radio station, 730 CKDM, he has been the ‘Voice of the Dauphin Kings’ since he moved to Dauphin in 2010. He has made a name for himself in the industry as a talented commentator, but also with his skill in public relations and passion for the game. It was these assets that made him a great choice for the Kings.
“Getting Christian on board is a great step for our organization.”, commented Marc Berry, Head Coach and General Manager of the Dauphin Kings. “His passion for the game, the Kings and the MJHL is contagious. As an organization we want to make sure we surround ourselves with good people. I know Christian will do a great job working with our sponsors and enhancing our game day experience. We’re looking forward to having him get started.”
Laughland is also eager to get to work, stating, “The Dauphin Kings organization is one of the top Junior A organizations in Canada and I couldn’t be happier to be joining a group of people that have such a great passion for the game of hockey and winning. The fact that I have lived in Dauphin for the past six years will definitely make the transition much smoother for myself. I’d like to take this chance to thank 730 CKDM Radio for the opportunities they have given me over the past six years and I wish them all the best in the future and look forward to working with them in maximizing the coverage and exposure of the Dauphin Kings across the Parkland, Manitoba and Canada.”
