ESPN, SEC Preview "Take It All In" Campaign For SEC Network
Published December 6, 2013
The Birmingham News' Jon Solomon on his Twitter feed reported "SEC Storied" documentaries "will go from 4 to 10 in one year," and "6 of those will debut on SEC Network." The next documentary, "Bo, Barkley and The Big Hurt," will debut Feb. 24 on ESPNU. Another has the working title "Super Fans" (TWITTER.com, 12/6).
Connolly said that he "does not expect" the "SEC Nation" Saturday morning show to impact "College GameDay" ratings. Connolly: "We're going to try to serve a different set of fans. They want the SEC deeper." ESPN "will have longer lead-in time" to announce where the show will be located each week. "College GameDay" usually "announces sites one week in advance." Connolly said there is the "possibility" of the two shows "being at the same place, same time." Joe Tessitore will host "SEC Nation" (AL.com, 12/6).
