Mountain West To Host Virtual Media Days
Los Angeles will no longer host Mountain West media days.
Get ready for a virtual media day
In a move that is not surprising at all, the Mountain West announced that its football media day will be held virtually on July 16th and 17th. The conference was to have the event in Los Angeles as SoFi Stadium is the home to the new league bowl game which will feature the Mountain West champion.
This is the right move as no one knows how long COVID-19 will be an issue across the country as each region has been hit differently and will be for at least the next few months.
This does allow for more media to be involved and as the release says to promote the league to a broader audience. Expect this move to be replicated by the other conferences.
The Mountain West wants to proceed to a schedule that is as normal as possible and hosting media days virtually is one step in doing that and keeping people safe.
