On the newest episode of “The Mission” podcast, we were joined by the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s new president, Jim Porter.

A lifelong resident of Stark County, Porter recalled watching Enshrinement speeches on the “front steps” of the Hall during his childhood.

After 33 years working in daily print journalism, including his last 6½ years as CEO & Publisher of GateHouse Media Ohio, Porter joined the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s staff during the spring of 2020 as the Chief Marketing and Communications Officer.

On the podcast, he went into great depth about his overall vision for the Hall, which includes: the 2022 Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls, special Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce events for the community and collaboration with Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls.

“We are proud partners of the Village,” Porter said. “As this Village grows, the brand of the Hall of Fame will grow, and we’re excited to see all of this around us.”
