Three-time NSMA Idaho Sports Writer of the Year B.J. Rains has proven to be the most credible and reliable insider for Boise State news since he arrived in Boise in 2013. His sources and connections within and around the Boise State Athletics Department allow him to regularly break news – including being the first to report Andy Avalos was returning as head coach in January 2021. Rains is the No. 1 source for coverage of both the Boise State football and men’s basketball teams, and he’s attended more games in the past decade – both at home and on the road – than any other media member in town. At more than 15,000, Rains also has the biggest Twitter following of any media member in the Boise market.
After nine years at the Idaho Press, Rains left in Dec. 2021 to create his own media powerhouse: Bronco Nation News. Rains provides daily insight, news, analysis and more on the Broncos at BroncoNationNews.com. Subscribers have full access to site content including stories, podcasts and live social media shows and the ability to post and interact with Rains and Boise State fans in the message boards. Subscribers will also be the first to get Boise State breaking news sent to them via email.
Bronco Nation News is an online community for Boise State fans to interact and stay up to date on the latest news and happenings both at Albertsons Stadium and ExtraMile Arena. It’s your one-stop shop for everything Boise State: stats, schedules, rosters, press conference video and more.
