ESPN's Chris Fowler Still Satisfied With "GameDay," But Wants To Call More Games
Published August 23, 2013
MORE "GAMEDAY" EVERY SATURDAY: SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL's Michael Smith notes "GameDay" will expand to three hours on ESPN this season after airing two hours on ESPN and one hour on ESPNU "in the past." The Aug. 31 show will kick off the regular season from Clemson Univ. and "will run four hours." The "common reaction throughout the industry is that this is ESPN's response" to FS1's new "Fox College Saturday" pregame show. However, ESPN Senior Coordinating Producer for College Sports Studio Shows Lee Fitting said that it is "more about fan appetite." Fitting: "We're not going against any other shows. What I tell my staff is that we have so much we have to do every week, we need to worry about our four walls. If we start to look outside, we'll get in trouble" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 8/19 issue).
