This afternoon, the Denver Broncos announced that longtime VP of Corporate Communications, Jim Saccomano will make the 2013 season his last. As reported on 850 KOA radio earlier today, Saccomano has been with the organization for 36 years and is the longest-tenured, professional-sports administrator in Colorado history. “Sacco” as he is nicknamed was already a 6-year veteran of the Broncos when this guy named John Elway began his rookie season in 1983. He has worked 26 Super Bowls as a public relations staffer: 21 for the NFL and 5 for the Broncos. Thankfully for the Broncos, Saccomano is not going away entirely. He will stay on in a consulting capacity as reported in the Denver Post.
I myself do not know Mr. Saccomano personally but everybody on various meadia outlets in Denver who does have nothing but praise for him. All I can say is that having followed him on Twitter (@broncos_sacco) for a few years, he has been a great source for not only all things Broncos, but also many things related to Denver and Colorado in general. Additionally having partially read his book, Game of my Life (my undiagnosed ADD has prevented me from finishing it as well as many other books), he clearly loved what he has done and has done what he loves. So with a great deal of respect and appreciation from Broncos Country, we congratulate and thank you, Sacco!
