For my first contribution, I wanted to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Mike Corcoran. I am entering my third season as a fully credentialed member of the media covering the Tampa Bay Lightning. I have covered the team for ESPN 1040, Creative Loafing Tampa, and I also am a contributor to The Fourth Period website. On top of that, I also created, co-host, and produce a weekly Lightning podcast.
I thoroughly enjoy every moment that I spend at the rink, and getting to know the people involved with all thirty organizations throughout the National Hockey League.
Becoming the ESPN Tampa Bay Lightning insider provides a great opportunity for me. If you are looking for game recaps, I would suggest that you check out my work at Creative Loafing as that is where I recap each game. Content on this site is not going to be about X’s and O’s, but rather telling my readers about some of the behind the scenes stuff, breaking news, and giving you a very unique access to both the Tampa Bay Lightning and the National Hockey League.
I am always looking for feedback and ideas. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime. My email is [email protected] and my twitter account is @mcorcoran81. Give that a follow because in a lot of cases, that is where I break news before I can get a story up. I look forward to interacting with all of you!
