ESPN RADIO host COLIN COWHERD will be simulcast on sister cable TV network ESPNU 10a-1p ET starting next MONDAY (8/25). COWHERD's show airs on over 350 stations plus satellite radio and online. ESPN RADIO's MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING presently simulcasts on ESPN2.
"COLIN's passion for college football makes him a great fit for ESPNU, and being a west coast native with career stops in PORTLAND and LAS VEGAS gives his sports insight a truly national perspective," said ESPN RADIO SVP/GM MO DAVENPORT. "HERD remotes from places like COLUMBUS and ATLANTA have attracted thousands of OHIO STATE and GEORGIA TECH fans, and now ESPNU viewers will get to see what’s made COLIN a hit on ESPN RADIO and streamed on ESPNRadio.com."
"Adding 'THE HERD' to ESPNU will offer a unique flare to its programming lineup and expose his passionate group of sports fans to the 24-hour college sports brand," said ESPNU GM/VP ROSALYN DURANT. "COLIN is a huge college football fan and a very talented broadcaster who we are excited to have as a regular face and voice on ESPNU."
"Our show has a fraternal feel to it, which seems to be a natural fit for ESPNU’s college audience," said COWHERD. "This will be a good opportunity to elevate the awareness of our show, plus fans will see the world’s fastest eater during breaks!"
