College Football Gets its Own Version of NFL RedZone

Published on September 3, 2015 by Darin White  

NFL RedZone has changed the way millennials consume football. It switches viewers from one game to another at a breakneck pace every time a team's offense drives the ball into its opponent's 20-yard line. The RedZone show has been wildly popular with the millions of NFL fans that play fantasy football.

Starting this weekend IMG will release a radio version of the RedZone concept for college football called College Football Blitz. According to Cynopsis Media the show will be a "Red Zone-esque live and on-demand audio platform that will offer fans live “cut-in” coverage to top college football games all day Saturday. The slate begins Sept. 5 and will run through the end of the season, produced and distributed by IMG Audio, broadcasting ten hours of play-by-play cut-ins, highlights, exclusive coaches’ interviews, and more. Local university IMG broadcast teams will contribute coverage in a whip-around format for nearly three quarters of Power 5 college football games on Saturdays from 2p-midnight.  College Football Blitz will be offered on a special game-day only channel on TuneIn Radio, as well as on SiriusXM (app, webstream and on satellite channels as scheduling allows), CBS Interactive’s “College Sports Live,” and on IMGCollege.com."
