- Nate Kreckman, Executive Producer - Mountain West Radio Network

 

“I worked with Chad the past few years at the NBA D-League Showcase as well as the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.  Chad’s preparation is second to none.  The Showcase & Summer League events are difficult and grueling in not just the number of games played, but the incredible volume of players participating.  Knowing each and every player is a testament to the work Chad puts in and the professionalism he displays on air.”
- Bert Bondi - Producer, NBA-TV

“Chad knows the business. His attention to detail, ability to create and maintain relationships, work well with others, and produce a professional product is among the best I have seen in minor league sports.
Chad's professionalism, preparation, and poise have truly made him an asset to the NBA Development League and the NBA family. He has flourished on a national stage when given the opportunity at NBA events and is an asset to any company looking for top notch talent.”

 

-Shawn Smith,

Founder, From The Stretch

Former Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer

(NBA Development League), National Basketball Association

"I’ve known Chad for many years now and the thing that impresses me the most about him is his versatility. He has a background in several different areas of the sports industry ranging from radio personality (102.3 The Ticket), to Play-by-play man (Colorado 14ers) to television broadcaster (NBA Summer league) to a media relations official (Colorado 14ers).  He is a true professional."

 

- Tim Gelt, Director of Media Relations - Denver Nuggets

"Chad is the best!  He's knowledgeable, insightful, energetic, and was a pleasure to have hosting the morning show on  102.3 The Ticket!"

"Chad Andrus sets the bar extremely high for the modern broadcaster.  He combines both a passion for his career and a zest for life, arriving at a very unique and intelligent delivery.  He is well connected and diverse, and is able to communicate in a very cool and hip manner, while still maintaining his investigative and journalistic core.  In a business that has become homogenized Chad holds on to something that has proven elusive for many - he is unique."

 

- Brandon Tierney, CBS Sports Radio

"Chad Andrus is a true professional and gentleman. I'm amazed at how much
work Chad does behind the scenes in preparation for calling a game,
carefully researching each team regardless of the significance of the
contest, whether it be a championship, summer league or minor league. He's a great reporter, story-teller and historian. He's someone who brings energy and excitement to each broadcast."

- Raymond Brewer, Sports Editor - LasVegasSun.com / LasVegasWeekly.com / 702.tv / LasVegas.com / RecruitingNevada.com

“Chad has hosted Fan on Demand with Comcast and the Denver Broncos for several years. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. It is always a pleasure working with him .”

- Gia Bocciarelli, Marketing Coordinator - Comcast

“My relationship with Chad is the PR-Media kind; he's always been a responsible member of the media, checking facts, not perpetuating rumors. He's not a "look-at-me, I'm in the media so I'm better than you" type we see more and more of these days. Good blend of old school responsibility and modern entertainment.”

 

-David Plati, Associate Athletic Director - University of Colorado Athletics

 

“I had the opportunity to work with Chad when he was a radio host/reporter and he covered the Broncos while I was director of media relations. Chad was always professional and straightforward in his dealings with me, with others on the staff and with players and coaches. In an often pressure-filled environment Chad always displayed a professional, steady demeanor that would serve him well on the other side of the equation, working in PR.”

 

-Paul Kirk, Director of Athletic Media Relations - Colorado State University

“I have had the pleasure to work with Chad Andrus at Broomfield Sports and Entertainment. He demonstrated a high level of professionalism, dedication and tremendous work ethic.
Chad’s worked well in a team environment and demonstrated tremendous initiative in his position. On a personal level, Chad is the kind of person you need in an organization, straight-forward, committed to the cause and talented.
It is my pleasure to recommend Chad highly.”

 

-Rick Nichols, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer - Broomfield Sports and Entertainment

“Over the years I've worked with dozens of managers, radio show hosts, producers and other support staff, Chad is amongst the best. He's a self-starter, trustworthy, dedicated and thorough. His media background makes him perfect to join or run any P.R. department. Chad has contacts all over the country and if he doesn't have a particular contact, he knows how to get it. I would hire the guy in a heartbeat. If my current employer had openings, he'd be atop my list.” 

 

-Steve Cofield, ESPN 1100 - Las Vegas

“In 2002, when my boss asked me who we should bring in to anchor our morning show updates I told him Chad Andrus. That boss has hired Chad 3 times in the past decade and has said he’d do it again in a heartbeat. There’s a reason organizations like KKFN, ESPN and the NBA keep coming back to Chad for their broadcasting and public relations needs.

He’s a no-nonsense professional who handles high pressure situations with a level headed, steady approach. Chad is also highly intelligent, which enables to him to attack problems from creative angles and produce innovative and unique solutions. As I have in the past, I highly recommend Chad Andrus to any organization looking to add a talented team player to its roster.”

 

-Dan Jacobs, Attorney at Law

"Chad was a major league level contributor both on the air and with his PR duties. He consistently delivered a personable and professional performance and was exceptionally knowledgeable with the information and assistance that he provided. A pleasure to work with and would be an asset to any organization.”
