is a half-hour show available in over 6 million households in Southern California, which works as a promotions vehicle for the Anaheim Ducks and the artists/entertainers who perform at Honda Center. The format for each 30-minute episode is magazine style with features and “behind the scenes” glimpses for viewers. The goal of the show is to highlight the incredible array of events at Honda Center, while extending each performer’s appearance in the Southern California market, giving them another platform to promote new products or soon-to-be released work. The result is a positive reflection of the hockey team, artists and the facility.
