Intro
And now it's time for training camp today with Neil Roberts and the Minnesota Vikings.

00;00;05;17 - 00;00;17;28
Neil Roberts
It's his 20th season with the Vikings and his first as executive vice president and chief communications officer. Jeff Anderson joins us. And Jeff, in this role, I understand you lead the Viking communication team.

00;00;18;00 - 00;00;31;07
Jeff Anderson
Now I'm blessed to be in my 20th year and to work for the Wilf's people like Andrew Miller that put me in this position, incredibly talented communication staff to oversee and obviously collaborating with Vikings entertainment network on a daily basis. As you said, it's exploding in terms of the content, both from team owned content that we're putting out, traditional media and blogs and fan sites.

00;00;39;21 - 00;00;42;11
Neil Roberts
All right. Good stuff, Jeff. We'll talk to you when we come back.

00;01;46;12 - 00;01;57;24
Neil Roberts
We're with Jeff Anderson. Let's talk facilities for a second here. You know, it gets more impressive each year. Jeff and I know there will spot a lot of acreage out here to keep growing this product and growing the grounds out here. Bring us up to date on what's the latest.

00;01;59;23 - 00;02;12;05
Jeff Anderson
Yeah, so I mean, the well, since they've taken ownership of this team, they've been focused on investing in the community. So you look at US Bank Stadium, right after we open the U.S. Bank Stadium, we broke ground on TCO Performance Center here. And so TCO Performance Center sits on about 40 acres, but this entire Viking Lakes campus is about 200 acres.

00;02;19;15 - 00;02;27;23
Neil Roberts
And real quick, I know that the US Bank, of course, what a great fan experience. Recently the Vikings won an award for the pregame that fans experience. Tell us about that.

00;02;27;27 - 00;02;43;01
Jeff Anderson
Vikings entertainment network. In our game production, folks won two major awards, three awards this offseason, both best show open across sports and best overall gameday production across sports. When you have your colleagues across professional sports voting on this massive honors for them to win.

00;02;43;09 - 00;02;48;05
Neil Roberts
Absolutely. Hey, Jeff, thanks for your time, as always, and continued success of the organization.

00;02;48;06 - 00;02;49;20
Jeff Anderson
All right. Thanks so much. I appreciate it.

00;02;49;25 - 00;02;53;22
Neil Roberts
Jeff Anderson, everybody. Hey, that concludes this edition. Until next time, I'm Neil Roberts.
