NEW ORLEANS – On the heels of announcing the network’s new LSU pregame show, LSU Gameday Live, Cox Sports Television reveals its plans to simulcast The Les Miles Show presented by Capital One Bank.
The Les Miles Show is a weekly one-hour radio call-in show broadcast from TJ Ribs Restaurant on Acadian Thruway in Baton Rouge. The show is live on the LSU Sports Radio Network beginning at 7:00pm and will be broadcast on CST beginning at 8:00pm. Longtime radio veteran and “Voice of the Tigers”, Jim Hawthorne serves as host of the weekly show.
"We are excited to add the Les Miles radio show to our extensive coverage of LSU football each week this fall" stated CST Network Head Rod Mickler, "With extensive pre and postgame coverage, weekly Tiger Tracks, mid-week coach's press conferences and now Coach Miles call in show, CST is must have TV for all Tiger Fans".
The coverage of the radio show is the second major announcement this month for the Gulf South Sports Leader in its coverage of the Tigers. CST’s LSU GAMEDAY LIVE pregame football show is set to debut prior to the season-opener against Wisconsin from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The show will originate from LSU’s one-of-a-kind mobile audio studio, Tiger One and from CST’s Louisiana CAT Studio in New Orleans.
Former LSU standout Gordy Rush leads the coverage along with former NFL Pro Bowl center Kevin Mawae, LSU National Champion Jacob Hester, LSUsports.net’s Emily Villere and CST’s Victor Howell.
