Allentown, Pa. - The Philadelphia Force have announced the promotion of current ECTB Stadiums public address announcer, Barry Eisenberg, to the position of Director of Broadcasting for the upcoming 2008 NPF season. In this newly created position, Eisenberg will be in charge of all facets of any and all possible Force television, radio, or internet broadcasts.
I'm extremely excited to take on the additional duties of the Director of Broadcasting for the Force. With the growth and popularity of the NPF, a larger amount of attention and dedication to different areas of broadcast media is necessary, and I'll do everything I can to help the Force and the NPF expand its possibilities and opportunities in this role to help the league become the preeminent women's professional sport, said Eisenberg.
Eisenberg began in the NPF with the New York/New Jersey Juggernaut in 2005 as their public address announcer. That team essentially evolved into the Philadelphia Force and Eisenberg moved with the team. Along with his PA duties with the Force, he also has done on-air promotional voice-overs and has done television play-by-play for ECTB and their Elite Championship Tournament Baseball program. Last year, Eisenberg served as the host of the Service Electrics TV2s weekly half-hour Force Forum.
Prior to joining the NPF, Eisenberg began his on-camera career as a field reporter for Cablevisions Neighborhood Journal in his hometown of Long Island, New York. This job allowed him to cover a wide array of events from flying a glider, to dropping the NASCAR checkered flag, to playing blindfolded alongside blind athletes in a beep ball game. Whether interviewing members of the New York Islanders, New York/New Jersey MetroStars, New York Dragons, or other dignitaries, he gets to the heart of the story.
Off camera, Eisenberg is a General Securities Principal & Compliance Auditor for J. P. Turner & Company, LLC, and is an avid amateur baseball player, who is absolutely convinced he can hit Johan Santana. Alongside wife Danielle, daughter Brielle, and six cats, Barry currently resides in Bethlehem, Pa.
