New York- NBC Sports has decided to use their platform to talk about equality and inclusion, as well as diverse topics surrounding hockey.
NBC Sports wanted to do more than just talk about racial issues; they wanted to make an impact with action instead of words. Anson Carson, who is the NHL analyst for NBC Sports is pretty excited for this weekly youtube channel to talk and shed more light on diverse stories.
“I’m pumped because there’s a lot of talks and performative activism that’s happening right now, and it’s amazing to see NBC Sports not only talking the talk but walking the walk,” said Carter. “There are a lot of great, diverse stories out there within the game of hockey. Our goal with Hockey Culture is to show the world that the sport of hockey is a place for everyone and not just on the ice, but also off the ice as well.”
Hockey Culture will air on their youtube channel throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs.
