THE Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) holds a special media day apart from its annual press conference ahead of the opening of Season 44 on January 13 at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.
The league launches the season on January 8 at the Conrad Hotel in Pasay City then mounts the media availability event on January 10 over at the Solaire Tent.
“The Commissioner’s Office and members of the PBA management committee as well as coaches and the key players of all 12 teams will be there to answer the queries of the media,” PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said.
“PBA personalities will be made available for photo shoots, on-cam TV interviews, live or taped radio interviews or interviews on whatever media platform. We will give these opportunities for our media friends to convey talks, messages and greetings to the fans,” Marcial added.
The PBA will announce the official rosters of the 12 teams and the conducts of the three conferences in the coming season during the press conference.
Marcial and the 12 PBA governors, headed by league Chairman Ricky Vargas, will also be available for a question-and-answer session.
The coaches and the players could be scrutinized deeper on the media day.
“It’s the first time that the PBA conducts this event, and we hope this could be of help to our media friends and partners on their stories and shows,” Marcial said.
