Silver Chalice, IMG College Launching New College Sports Website Campus Insiders
Published March 19, 2013
ANCHOR PROGRAM AIRS TUESDAYS: The anchor program for the site will be “CI Live,” an hour-long studio show originating from Chicago’s Harpo Studios. The weekly show will run live on Tuesdays at 1:00pm ET and will attempt to capture the lunch-time crowd that is looking for “a quick fix on college sports,” said Sullivan, a former ESPN exec. The fast-paced show will develop a network of “insiders” that it will feature in its quick-hitting reports throughout the hour. Those insiders could be IMG College’s radio talent, local bloggers or newspaper beat reporters in the market. Davis’ show in August will be more of an opinion-based program that focuses on big issues on the college sports landscape. Additionally, Sullivan said that Campus Insiders has acquired College Football News, which in the past has had affiliations with Scout and Fox. Content from CFN will migrate to Campus Insiders this summer and be central to a full rollout of written content and team/conference reports by the start of the college football season.
