Hawkeye Nation Media Day Blitz

HawkeyeNation.com's coverage of Kirk Ferentz, Chad Greenway, Abdul Hodge and Ed Hikel at last week's Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon from Chicago had no rivals, online or in print. Iowa's Annual Media Day event is Monday, and the HN.com staff will be even greater in numbers than we were in Chicago...learn more of what you can expect this week...and beyond.

We promised you more multimedia coverage of Hawkeye athletics this year, and as we showed you last week, we are delivering.

In all, we had over 20 content items related to that event, with many of those items being audio files so that you could actually listen to the players and coaches being interviewd.

Our coverage of Iowa's media day will dwarf that effort, as we will have no fewer than six representatives on hand (and maybe more) conducting interviews, taking pictures, shooting video and more.

But don't just think that this is a big bang and then it all goes away.

Last year we produced the most words related to the Iowa football program on a weekly basis & in the most timely fashion. We will be taking a 'Media Day' team approach to each and every game week all season long.

At the 2004 media day, our readers told us that they wanted more photos from Hawkeye events. We were clearly lacking in that area.

We certainly listen to our subscribers & value your opinions, so this year our photo galleries will be shot by professionals with professional grade equipment..the last thing you want or need are Jon or Rob shooting pictures with out decent (yet inadequate) digital cameras.

We will also provide some video footage from Media Day, and as we did last year, we will have weekly chats, and likely more than one.

Some of these items will be free for all users, but the majority will be for subscribers.

This is always the best time of year to jump on board for the best Hawkeye subscription value in existence today.

Our highest level subscription is $99 per year. For that, you get every story on our network and access to our 'Members Only' message board. In fairness, another online network does the same thing for the same price.

But with an annual subscription to HawkeyeNation.com, you will also receive 10 issues of Hawkeye Nation, the magazine, the only glossy stock magazine of its kind related to the Iowa Hawkeyes. 48-pages an issue, plus you will receive TWO Scout.com Recruiting Yearbooks.

For a limited time, call 888-501-5752 and tell them that you want the Hawkeye Nation special annual package that includes an annual subscription to The Sporting News as well as a free copy of the book Tales from the Iowa Sidelines by Ron Maly, a 196 page book featuring Iowa football.

Well over a $200 value, it's all yours for the same $99 per year.

Plus, you get to sample everything we will be covering on media day for FREE for seven days, knowing that this is how things will be each and every week of the Hawkeye football season.
