The 60th anniversary of the Giants’ first year in San Francisco has been met with a full media blitz by the organization. Not only are they holding multiple special events throughout the year, there’s a poll running via NBC Sports Bay Area to decide the #1 moment (thus far) in San Francisco history. Cody Ross’s two-homer game has been rolling right through that tournament.
Also, and most surprising — to me, anyway, because I didn’t find out about it until 20 minutes ago — they’re running a special interview series with memorable figures from the SF era. And it’s hosted by Renel Brooks-Moon, one of the greatest media personalities in Bay Area history.
SFG Productions, the in-house video production team for the San Francisco Giants, produces original content for in-game entertainment, digital, social and TV distribution. In 2018 SFG Productions will produce six original episodes of a new 1-on-1 interview series with host Renel Brooks-Moon. Brooks-Moon will interview Giants legends and alumni in a celebration of the Giants’ 60th year in San Francisco. Short and long form digital story content can be viewed on San Francisco Giants official Youtube channel, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and SFGiants.com.
To all of us, she’s the voice of AT&T Park, to some of us, she was a DJ on KMEL during our formative years. And now we can watch the first episode of “Forever Giants” that features Renel interviewing Dave Dravecky.
I’m sure most of us who know Dave Dravecky’s Giants story will be waiting to get to that moment, but I am also curious to see how Renel interviews someone she’s clearly met and spoken with several times before. She’s in deep with the Giants, so there should be a comfort level that gets people to speak openly. Of course, this is a celebratory context so don’t expect any hard-hitting journalism. But I am curious to see who she interviews throughout the series and what she can get out of them to really make the most of the show.
Renel is an engaging host who loves the Giants. That’s the perfect start to a brand new show like this.
