Bixby honored with ECHL media relations award

PRINCETON, N.J. - The Gwinnett Gladiators' Dustin Bixby was selected as the American Conference's recipient of the ECHL Media Relations Award for 2006-07.

Bixby is joined by Las Vegas' Josh Fisher, who was similarly honored for his efforts in the National Conference.

Bixby and Fisher were presented their awards at the annual ECHL communication and marketing meetings, held earlier this week in Las Vegas.

Bixby is in his fifth season in the Gladiators' public relations department. He has called the action for every Gladiators game since the organization relocated from Mobile, Ala.
