CST Announces New Weekly Show, 'Tiger Tracks'
Assoc. Athletic Director/Communications
Newly-created magazine show replaces LSU Sports Journal!
NEW ORLEANS - Tiger Tracks, a new half-hour magazine show that will highlight all facets of LSU Athletics, will begin airing weekly on Cox Sports Television starting Wednesday, September 1, CST and LSU announced today. CST, the regional sports network home of the LSU Tigers, will air the show each Wednesday from September through May.
Hosted by CST's longtime LSU insider Jordy Hultburg and LSU Senior Associate Sports Information Director Bill Franques, Tiger Tracks will focus on all things that affect the athletic department from the inside and outside and from football to the Olympic sports.
Tiger Tracks will replace LSU Sports Journal which has been airing monthly for the past several years.
"Tiger Tracks will give our fans the opportunity to get timely information about all of their favorite sports and events at LSU," said Joe Alleva, Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics at LSU, "and it will give all of our coaches the chance to discuss upcoming home events in a more timely manner than the old Sports Journal offered."
Coaches from all of the university's athletic programs will make an appearance on the show throughout the year. The show will also feature an inside look at the athletics program and the Tiger Athletic Foundation and features on academic programs at the university.
Since 2002, CST has been the exclusive regional sports network home for LSU events, including broadcasts of the highly-popular football game replays. Anchored by award-winning announcer Lyn Rollins and former Tiger Greg Bowser, the replays have become a staple of CST's programming on Sunday and Wednesday nights.
CST has also been front and center for all of LSU's athletic accomplishments. The regional sports network broadcasts live men's and women's basketball and has followed each team as they have advanced to the NCAA Final Four. LSU fans have been able to get to know their champions on the baseball field and will get a chance to see more of the Tigers, as the new agreement expands CST's coverage to a minimum of 12 baseball games on the air. Coverage also continues for softball and gymnastics.
