MCKINNIS GRACIOUSLY ATTENDS NY NATION AWARDS BANQUET
of B.A.S.S. and Outdoor Media Legend Speaks at Annual
It’s been five years since Jerry McKinnis last came
to New York for their annual awards banquet, but once
again the reception was much warmer than the winter
weather. On January 16th, approximately 125 people
were in attendance to welcome the bass fishing legend
and co-owner of B.A.S.S., as he was featured as guest
speaker for the occasion.
McKinnis last visited the New York Nation banquet
literally as the ink was drying on the purchase
of B.A.S.S. from ESPN and his speech focused on
the ‘state of B.A.S.S.’ five years after the transaction.
“I’m just proud of where we’re at right now, so
it’s really fun to talk about it,” McKinnis remarked,
hinting that the company is stronger and better
organized since the purchase.
