Salt City Hoops Joins The Beehive

Salt City Hoops Joins The Beehive

The Beehive is happy to announce the addition of Salt City Hoops to The Beehive family. Salt City Hoops has been covering the Utah Jazz and the NBA since 2008 as an original member of the ESPN TrueHoop family of sports blogs, back when that was a thing.

Founder Spencer Hall also created the Salt City Hoops show, which aired weekly at times on the Jazz-owned radio station, 1280/97.5 The Zone, and later on ESPN 700. Spencer is the former news director at and former vice president of digital platforms for the Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment family of companies, including the Utah Jazz.

Salt City Hoops will be a weekly dispatch and short podcast with stories and nonsense featuring the Utah Jazz and anything else sportsy going on in the state. For those of you who like deep dives on strange draft prospects and salary cap ramifications of an impossible fifteen-team trade to acquire your favorite player, you can visit all week.

Managing editor Dan Clayton is a veteran of media row, formerly providing color commentary on the Spanish-language radio broadcast. Salt City Hoops alumni include Andy Larsen, who covers the Utah Jazz for the Salt Lake Tribune, along with his data journalism work covering COVID-19 for the paper, and Angie Treasure, director of digital content and social media for the Utah Jazz.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Salt City Hoops and Spencer Hall join The Beehive family,” said Clint Betts, publisher and founder of The Beehive. “The community Salt City Hoops has built over the years is beyond impressive, but its ability to continue to be a welcoming home to Utah Jazz fans of all stripes is what’s made it beloved. We’re looking forward to building upon its success and can’t wait to integrate this vital community into The Beehive platform. Go Jazz!”
