NBC Sports Washington analyst Alan May has a new gig, according to a press release from PR Newswire. May confirmed the news in a text message.
May was named Director of Sports and Entertainment for ImagineBC, “a global tech company seeking to give consumers more control of their personal data.”
“I’m honored to add my perspective and look forward to contributing from day one,” May said in the release.
“Alan brings a wealth of knowledge with him from his experience both on and off the ice and is a welcomed addition to our team,” Erik Rind, CEO of ImagineBC, added. “In an increasingly digital world, we are building a way for everyone to participate in the economics of their data. Alan understands this vision well and is invested in working toward that future of tomorrow.”
According to the ImagineBC website, the company, which utilizes blockchain technology, aims to give the individual its power back “in a world where big tech is making money off your data.” May will play a role in the formation of its member community.
May says the new job will not impact his TV gig as several Caps fans feared on social media.
“I have lots of free time,” May said. “I love my job at NBC Sports Washington and have no intentions of leaving. It has no conflict with my role or abilities as an analyst for NBCSW. My passion for the network, the team, DC and the fan base continues to grow every day.”
The opportunity for May is no different than the opportunities Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin have outside of NBC Sports Washington. Laughlin runs Network Hockey, a local hockey training program, while Beninati covers Major League Lacrosse for ESPN when he has gaps in his schedule.
