Presented by eCoach, daily show to connect coaches, staff with BBN
Written by UK staff
LEXINGTON, Ky. – With Wildcat teams temporarily sidelined, UK Athletics is launching a new live show on Facebook and Twitter to connect fans to the coaches and staff who lead their teams: BBN Live presented by eCoach.
The show will feature two conversations each weekday on UK Athletics’ official Twitter (@UKAthletics) and Facebook (Kentucky Wildcats) accounts. The afternoon version will air at 2:30 p.m. and will include kid-centric topics. The evening version will air at 8 p.m. and will be for general audiences.
Darren Headrick and other UK Sports Network talent will host each show and will be joined by a rotating cast of UK head coaches, assistant coaches and prominent staff members from all 22 Wildcat teams. Volleyball head coach Craig Skinner and softball head coach Rachel Lawson will be the guest stars of the premiere episodes on Monday.
The goal of BBN Live is to connect the Big Blue Nation to its favorite UK teams during a time that no competition is taking place due to the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
