Richard Immel stops by to talk about the marketing of wrestling

A little bit of free form conversation on Episode 594 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast as Richard Immel of SportsEngine stops by and is the first “in Speakeasy” guest in New Brighton. Richard's career in wrestling media started at Flowrestling as an intern before he landed a job at USA Wrestling and then was thrust right into the Save Olympic Wrestling movement.

After leaving wrestling briefly, he returned to work in marketing in the Twin Cities with SportsEngine, the parent company of Trackwrestling. We'll talk about preview guides, beer, UWW and USA Wrestling's marketing efforts, the upcoming 7in7 kickoff party before the NCAA's, how awesome our wives are to let us work in wrestling and some general nonsense as well.

7in7 NCAA Kickoff Party
We’d like to let our listeners know about an NCAA Kickoff Party called “7 in 7” that will be co-hosted by Trackwrestling and JROB Intensive Wrestling Camps on Wednesday, March 18 at The Barn at Cowboy Jack's in Downtown Minneapolis. Emceed by Big Ten Network commentator Shane Sparks, the event will feature 7-minute interviews with 7 high-profile guests from the wrestling community. Dan Gable is the first booked guest, and more will be announced soon. Tickets are $15, and proceeds from the event will be donated to TakeDown Cancer. A limited number of tickets are available, so visit soon to reserve your spot.
