Winnipeg, MB – The Winnipeg ICE announced today that Brian Munz has been named Manager, Broadcast & Communications

“We are excited to add Brian to our organization,” said Winnipeg ICE Head of Operations Mack Heisinger. “When you look at his career, the relationships he has built and how he deals with players, officials, team personnel, media and fans, Brian is the perfect fit for the ICE in how we are continuing to grow our organization.

As Manager, Broadcast & Communications, Munz will be responsible for broadcasting all ICE games on CFRW 1290 AM, iHeartRadio app and winnipegICE.ca. He is also the primary contact to provincial and national media in their coverage of the ICE.
