Minnesota Vikings

MINNESOTA, USA // Bryan Harper serves as Vice President, Content & Production of the Minnesota Vikings. In his role, Harper leads the award-winning Vikings Entertainment Network (VEN), a talented staff that is responsible for Content Strategy & Production, Digital & Social Media, and Game Presentation.

Over his 17 year Vikings career, Harper has created notable Vikings traditions such as the Skol Chant and Gjallarhorn; built brand extensions such as VEN and Viktor the Viking; and innovated productions such as the can’t-miss in-stadium pregame intro sequence and the league’s only TV-Radio preseason simulcast.

Harper also played a key role in the technology plans that support Vikings content creation and fan experience. He served as the Vikings lead on the design-build of the SkolVision Production Control Room at U.S. Bank Stadium as well as TCO Studios at Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center.

Along with his Vikings role, Harper has served as a postgame production consultant at the past 11 Super Bowls and since 2009 has volunteered with St. Paul, MN based Serving Our Troops. In late 2020, he joined Positive Coaching Alliance’s Minnesota Chapter Board of Directors.

Prior to joining the Vikings, Harper built his foundation with stints at the Columbus Crew, Pittsburgh Pirates, Jacksonville Jaguars, and International Speedway Corporation – contributing to a major construction project or new stadium during each stint.

Harper is a native of Evansville, IN and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Southern Indiana. He and his wife Stephanie reside in Sunfish Lake, Minnesota.
