College Football Gets its Own Version of NFL RedZone
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."
