As the college football season quickly approaches, I bring you exciting news from the Fox6 family: While I'm sad to see my long-time co-hort Paul Finebaum go (his ESPN career is about to begin and yes, I'm proud of Paul), I'm pumped up about bringing into the fold long-time and respected columnist Kevin Scarbinsky of the Alabama Media Group.
Kevin has done some superb work over three decades in our state as he writes online and newspaper columns (Birmingham News, Huntsville Times, Mobile Press-Register). He now brings his fresh sports takes to Fox6 as he becomes my co-anchor on our statewide "Tide and Tigers Today" football show. The program will run 14 weeks each Saturday at 10 am beginning August 31st- it can be seen on Fox6 Birmingham as well as in Montgomery, Huntsville, Mobile, Dothan and Columbus, GA.
There's more good news: Very shortly I will be announcing the additions of former Tide and Tiger players to the program- who says 4 men on the set can't rock? Can't wait! Together with the power of Raycom, our 60-minute weekly pre-game show promises to be informative and thought-provoking.
Is one hour of Scarbinsky on TV not enough? Not a problem, as he will join me each week this fall on Mondays (6 and 9:45 pm), Tuesdays (6 and 9:45 pm) and Thursdays at 9:45 pm. That's six weekly appearances from Kevin Scarbinsky- and you thought you saw enough of Finebaum!
I hope you are in for a healthy and exciting football season, and I hope you allow us into your home to help make the ride a bit smoother. The Fox6 on-air sports staff of Kevin Scarbinsky, Scott Griffin, Sheldon Haygood, Jeh Jeh Pruitt, Britton Lynn, yours truly and Raycom reporters state wide will be working hard for you.
What do you think of Scarbinsky replacing Finebaum on Fox6? Let 'er rip as we are listening to you!
