Erik Holth was named the new Sports Information Director and Public Relations Officer at CBC on May 17, 2017. He will be the primary contact for all 12 CBC Mustang athletic teams.
“I’m so excited that I was afforded this opportunity,” he said. “I am passionate about sports information, but I am just happy that I can continue my ministry to college students at a great, Christian institution like CBC. I’m ready for this opportunity and will seize and attack it the best I know how.”
Holth comes to CBC after spending the 2015-16 academic year as the Assistant Sports Information Director at Hendrix College also in Conway. While at Hendrix, his primary responsibilities were social media content, video and live streaming and video production and editing. He took Hendrix from a 120th ranked social media program in NCAA Division III to 76th by the end of his tenure.
Prior to his arrival at Hendrix, Holth spent 2014-15 at Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, Ky. While at KWC, he served as the primary contact for men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and women’s basketball, while also serving as the road radio voice for the Panther women’s basketball team. Additionally, he was in charge of all social media accounts, an area that he helped develop into 15th in NCAA Division II by the time of his departure.
His start in the sports information industry began at East Texas Baptist University, an NCAA Division III school in Marshall, Texas. While at ETBU, he began to learn everything that it takes to be a sports information director and assisted in all aspects of the school’s 14 sports at the time. He was also part of the staff that was selected for the 2013-14 American Southwest Conference Sports Information Department of the Year.
“We are excited to have Erik here,” said Athletic Director Lyle Middleton. “His enthusiasm and experience are what we need at CBC. He understands the sports that we have here and is passionate and driven about making sure our athletes are covered in the best way possible.”
Holth graduated from Oral Roberts University in 2008 with a degree in Mass Media Communications. He is a member of CoSIDA and takes over for Darryl McPhate, who served CBC wonderfully over the past several years and lives in Conway with his wife, Laura and their four-year-old daughter.
