Thursday July 31, 2003Sunshine Network to Expand Football Coverage

Gainesville, FL

For the eighth consecutive year, Sunshine Network will provide Gator fans statewide with taped coverage of all 12 Florida Gator regular season football games this fall, plus the SEC Championship if the Gators participate. Additionally, Sunshine is introducing a new Saturday lineup of programming, including live post-game reaction and interviews immediately following each Gator game.

Sunshine Network will provide two statewide airings of each game for Gator fans – one Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. during BREAKFAST WITH THE GATORS and the other Tuesday nights at 10:30 p.m. (ET). David Steele, returns as play-by-play announcer for UF football on Sunshine this season, and is joined by analyst Nat Moore in the booth, with sideline reporter Steve Babik. The games will be available in over 5.9 million cable and satellite homes statewide.

New this Fall, Sunshine is presenting a dynamic Saturday lineup focused on previewing and then re-capping the day’s college football action entitled TAILGATE SATURDAY. Coverage kicks off Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m. with the hour-long live BUBBA BURGER COLLEGE KICKOFF. Hosts Frank Frangie, Brady Ackerman and Terry Norvelle preview all of Florida’s major football programs and provide gameday insight to each Florida Gator game. Then, for the first time in Florida, immediately following the conclusion of all UF games, TAILGATE SATURDAY UF POSTGAME takes over and provides fans with live on-site extended post-game coverage including interviews, highlights and analysis with James Bates reporting from outside the Gators locker room. TAILGATE SATURDAY UF POSTGAME will provide Gator fans the best and only place in Florida to find extensive coverage of the Gators after the final whistle blows. Finally, fans can re-cap all the day’s action from around the state and the SEC with TAILGATE SATURDAY FOOTBALL WRAP a one-hour live show airing at 10 p.m., which breaks down all the day’s games that impact teams from the Sunshine State.

The "Florida Gators Preseason Special" premieres statewide on Sunshine August 18 at 9:30 p.m. with six additional airings in August. "Florida Football Highlights with Ron Zook" airs statewide Sundays at 12 Noon and repeats Tuesdays at 5 p.m. and late night at 2 a.m. beginning September 1. "SEC-TV" airs Thursdays at 11 p.m. beginning August 29. "Gator Zone," the university-produced weekly magazine show, airs Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., beginning September 17. Sunshine Network will also simulcast select Thursday evening editions of the radio call-in program, "Gator Hotline," featuring Head Coach Ron Zook.

The network’s continuing agreement with UF insures that fans across Florida will have access to an extensive schedule of year-round Gator programming that rivals that of any other Division I university.
