Miller receives ECHL Outstanding Media Award

OK, so any of you who really know me, know that there’s not a falsely modest bone in my body.

I’m a legend in my own mind, just ask my wife and kids.

But truly humbled by the award I got today, especially considering who has won it in the past.

Still got a Q&A scheduled with ECHL commish Brian McKenna after the Kelly Cup finals are done, which looks like soon with Reading being up 2-0.

I was going to ask him about, among other things, expansion and why the ECHL doesn’t have a schedule more in line with the NHL or AHL. Let me know if you’ve got any questions you’d like for me to throw his way.

I want to thank everyone who has sent along their congratulations, especially from colleagues and friends who have taken time out to give me such a hard time and to try and keep my ego in check.

In case you missed it on the multi-media levels I’ve sent out today. …

The ECHL announced on Monday that The Post and Courier’s Andrew Miller has been selected as the 2012-13 recipient of the ECHL Outstanding Media Award.
The award is determined in a vote of league media members, media relations directors and broadcasters.
“We are proud to present Andrew with the 2012-13 ECHL Outstanding Media Award,” said ECHL Commissioner Brian McKenna. “He has provided Stingrays’ fans with top-notch coverage for well over a decade, and is certainly well-deserving of this award.”
Body: Miller has worked at The Post and Courier for more than two decades and has covered the Stingrays since 1998.
“It’s an incredible honor to be given an award like this, especially considering some of the past winners like Christine Troyke (Gwinnett) and Doyle Woody (Alaska), two journalists I truly respect and admire,” Miller said. “I couldn’t do my job without the tremendous support and hard work from my colleagues at The Post and Courier. My job is made so much easier working with everyone in the Stingrays front office, especially team president Rob Concannon and head coach Spencer Carbery. A special thank you goes out to my broadcast partner and Stingrays media relations director Joey Zakrzewski, who makes coming to work every day a pleasure.”
In addition to covering the Stingrays, he also is the paper’s beat writer for the College of Charleston and Charleston Battery soccer team and has covered everything from high school sports to the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League. He also provides color commentary for the Stingrays’ home broadcasts. Miller is from Chicago, Ill., and graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1986 with a degree in journalism.

  1. Congratulations, Andrew. A most deserving award to seemingly the lone Rays supporter on the Post & Courier staff. Thank you for all you have done for Lowcountry hockey.

  2. Congratulations, Andrew. It is well deserved. Keep us informed during these long summer months. See you this fall.

    • Thanks to everyone out there who has sent along their congratulations the last couple of days.
      It’s been a good couple of days.
      Ego getting out of control.
      I did forget to thank one group of people — the Stingray fans and our P&C readers. If not for you guys I wouldn’t have a job. It’s something I try not to forget.
      Thanks for your interest in the Stingrays.

  3. I would like to know if the All Star format is going to change back. I liked the old way. More guys that deserved being All Stars should be able to participate. I will make a difference is their careers..I would also like to see it here as well.
    Congrats again.
