SEC Network Will Carry Live Finebaum Show During Iron Bowl
ESPN will be televising the Iron Bowl for the first time in seven years and the network plans to blow out its coverage of the rivalry game.
Not only will the game air live on ESPN but the SEC Network plans to air a second show during the same timeslot that will analyze the game in real time. Here's the show description according to ESPN:
SEC Network will carry a complimentary viewing option to ESPN’s game coverage in which Paul Finebaum watches the game with analysts in the SEC Network studios as it plays out. Finebaum Film Room: Iron Bowl Live begins at 7 p.m. and will include analysts Marcus Spears, Greg McElroy, Cole Cubelic and Booger McFarland discussing the game and breaking down plays.
This 'second screen' broadcast has been used for bigger sporting events in the past to give viewers additional insight and coverage and is becoming more and more common with the expanding number of television networks and digital platforms.
But this weekend's production will be have the familiar Finebaum flare of his daily call-in show. Iron Bowl Live will allow callers to sound off on the game as it happens so you might just hear from Phyllis from Mulga, Jim from Tuscaloosa, or Tammy as they're watching the game.
Will you flip over and watch any of the coverage on the SEC Network?
