By Ray Hamill — It’s been a fun ride so far and long may it continue.
This week Humboldt Sports is celebrating its fifth birthday as we continue to bring you the best local sports coverage on the North Coast.
Humboldt Sports was launched in late August 2018 and five years later we’re still going strong and continuing to grow.
What better way to get your name in front of close to 120,000 readers a month.
In particular, a BIG thanks to Murphy’s Markets, Local State Farm Agent Traci Day, Humboldt Countertops and Surfacing, St. Bernard’s and DelReka Distributing, all of whom have been BIG sponsors of our local sports coverage for years now.
It’s no surprise to see those company names and banners — and indeed many of our other sponsors as well — regularly displayed at multiple local sporting events. These companies support many local teams and sporting events.
Also a big thank to you to all of our other sponsors, including Porter Street Barbecue, The Redwood Acres Raceway, The Humboldt Fence Company, Maples Service Plumbing and Heating, College of the Redwoods, The Stove Doctors in McKinleyville, Edward Jones Financial Advisor Meagan Curtis, EG Ayers Distributing, The Humboldt Crabs, The Humboldt Eagles, Supervisor Rex Bohn, Glenn Franco Simmons Photography, Scott Pesch of Coldwell Banker Commercial, Morenos Services, Coast Central Credit Union, Bear River Casino and Mendes Supply, all of whom have been generous in their support as well.
And a big thank you to all of our readers and the coaches who play a key role in getting information to Humboldt Sports, as well as the athletes, without whom none of this would work.
It’s been a fun five years, and here’s to many more!
