January 19th Program
All About the Ice Hogs
     Our January 19th program will be "All About the Ice Hogs".
     David Costello is in his second season with the Rockford IceHogs and currently serves as the Manager of Marketing, Digital Content, and Community Relations. In his role, David oversees the external marketing for the IceHogs as well as the development of digital content for the team’s website and social media platforms. In his community relations role, David leads the strategic plan for fundraising efforts for the IceHogs Community Fund, supported by the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation, and helps coordinate the organization’s community appearances and donation requests.
     Prior to the IceHogs, David worked in Public Relations and Marketing for Rock Valley College for nearly 15 years, and his career began in sports as he worked in Public Relations and Marketing for seven years with two affiliated Minor League Baseball teams in Rockford and Beloit.
     David is a lifelong resident of the 8-1-5, was born and raised in Rockford, and currently resides in Roscoe with his wife Becky and their son Elliott (5).
