Strack receives ECHL Outstanding Media Award

PRINCETON, N.J. – The ECHL announced on Monday that Jordan Strack of WTOL TV in Toledo, Ohio has been selected as the 2018-19 recipient of the ECHL Outstanding Media Award.The award is determined in a vote of league media members, media relations directors and broadcasters.

“I am truly humbled and honored to win this incredible award. I fell in love with the sport of hockey because of the ECHL,” Strack said. “At 6-years-old, my dad and I had season tickets to watch the Toledo Storm at the old Sports Arena. When they won the Riley Cup in 1993, we all ran on the ice and celebrated with the team. It was one of the coolest memories of my childhood. I remember sitting in the stands and announcing the games from the seats. Toledo is an absolutely incredible hockey town. The passion this city has for the Walleye is remarkable. At WTOL, we recognize the love this city has for the franchise and our coverage hopefully reflects that. Thank you again to everyone from the ECHL for this amazing honor.”

Strack is the Sports Director at WTOL 11 and has been with the station since November 2008. He grew up in Northwest Ohio, attended Maumee High School and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Bowling Green State University. Strack lives with his daughter Kennedy and their two dogs.
