The college football season is drawing nigh and CBS Sports Network is ramping up its coverage with a quartet of new shows.
CBS Sports Network, which enters its ninth year of coverage with a 42-game slate in 2011, will launch the previously announced The Tim Brando Show on Aug. 29. Airing weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the program is a live simulcast of Brando's nationally syndicated radio show, featuring an array of guests, plus topics and commentary about the world of college athletics.
Tackling the Trends, which will join the network's roster on Wednesdays at 9 p.m., starting on Sept. 7. Hosted by Tracy Wolfson, the 30-minute show will examine the hot topics in college football through a variety of interactive platforms.
The other two programs are tied to the Southeastern Conference, CBS Sports's premiere college football package. Kicking off Sept. 17 at 2 p.m, SEC Today presented by Sonic will provide a Saturday afternoon primer for CBS's "SEC Game of the Week," with analysis and live on-site reports. It's hosted by Brent Stover.
The following day, CBS Sports Network will debut SEC Express at 10 a.m., recapping all of the top plays and moments from Saturday's games.
The rookies join the network's Inside College Football, The Tony Barnhart Show, SEC Tonight and College Football Confidential. For its part, Inside College Football will expand to a two-hour live show from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday nights and will now be on Thursday nights as well from 7-8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m., hammocking the network's live college football game.
Premiering Aug. 30., Inside College Football is hosted by Adam Zucker, flanked by analysts Aaron Taylor, Rich Rodriguez, Randy Cross and Brian Jones.
Starting its third year Aug. 31, The Tony Barnhart Show moves to Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
