DENVER â€" Denver Broncos Vice President of Corporate Communications Jim Saccomano will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Order Sons of Italy in America (OSIA) on Sunday, June 13. The award ceremony will take place during a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the Denver Marriott West.

Saccomano is recognized as one of the most accomplished public relations professionals in NFL history as well as the longest tenured pro sports administrator in Colorado. He has chaired the NFL’s media relations and international committees and has served on the league’s postseason, radio-television, and special projects committees as well.

In his three decades with the Broncos, he has coordinated all of the Broncos’ public relations efforts locally, nationally and internationally, and in this capacity has worked on Super Bowls XXI, XXII, XIV, and the World Championship Super Bowls XXXII and XXXIII. In addition to his five Broncos Super Bowls, he has worked for the NFL’s public relations staff at 19 additional Super Bowls and for 12 games has been designated by the league as a co-captain of the NFL’s Super Bowl PR staff. 

In 1990, Saccomano and his staff were honored as the first recipient of the Pro Football Writers of America’s Pete Rozelle Award as the NFL’s outstanding public relations staff. In 1998, he was named winner of the Charlie Callahan Award for Public Relations from The Football News.

A Denver native and honors graduate of Metropolitan State College (B.A., 1970), he also has a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Colorado (1977). Saccomano is Chairman of the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame and serves on the Colorado Press Association Foundation Board and has served on the Denver Chamber of Commerce Metro Sports Committee as well.

The OSIA is the largest organization in the U.S. for people of Italian heritage. Founded in 1905, today it has 600,000 members and supporters along with a network of more than 700 lodges throughout the country.
