Start Every Alabama Game Day with The Tide Tailgate Show
For the third straight year, Tide 99.1 will give Alabama fans extended coverage on game days with a two-hour pregame show, but this year we've made a few additions.
The biggest change is that we'll be broadcasting every game - home, away or neutral site - in 2015. Join us five hours before every Alabama kickoff for The Tide Tailgate Show presented by Bud Light, where we'll get the conversation started earlier than anyone else. We'll give you a place to discuss that day's game and debate the biggest topics, but we'll also treat it like the pregame party you'd expect for an football game in the south.
The second change we're thrilled about is the addition of former Alabama All-American Mike Johnson to the show. The recently-retired Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman will join SEC Network broadcaster Mick Gillispie, 2009 national champion Baron Huber, and Digital Managing Editor Ben George. Having two players from Nick Saban's only undefeated team will give you unique insight into the Alabama program.
The show will continue to broadcast live from Rounders on the Strip for every SEC home game, which will give you the opportunity to listen to the show while watching college football on more than 20 flat screen tvs. We might add in additional locations as the season goes along, so make sure you're following us on Twitter at @TidePregame to stay updated. We'll also use that account to interact with you throughout the show so use it to get your opinion heard.
As always, The Tide Tailgate Show presented by Bud Light will take you right into the Crimson Tide Sports Network's coverage of Alabama football, which you can hear on Tide 99.1 and 95.3 the Bear in Tuscaloosa.
The first show of the season will begin at 2 PM as we get you set for Alabama's primetime kickoff against No. 20 Wisconsin.
