While we are still months away from the SEC Network's debut in Aug. 2014, the ESPN family of networks will be graced with the presence of the Paul Finebaum radio show a little early. After an incredible Iron Bowl game between Alabama and Auburn, Finebaum's show will be simulcast in its entirety on ESPNU at its normal time of 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time.
This comes only a weekend after the announcement of The Paul Finebaum Show debuting on Sirius XM Channel 85: ESPN Xtra. With his show on Monday being on ESPNU, Finebaum's show will also be viewable online via WatchESPN. So if you live in the South or subscribe to satellite radio, you can watch/listen to Paul on three different mediums!
Finebaum does still have a face for radio, but he's becoming more and more useful on TV. He makes appearances on all ESPN networks throughout the week and is heavily utilized on College Gameday on Saturdays, but his true environment is in the radio studio, listening to callers yell at him for four hours. This year's Iron Bowl was one of the best ever, and Finebaum's show on Monday will be full of people wanting to calmly express their opinions with exceeding decorum. Not really, it'll be a lot of shouting. That's why it's worth watching.
I wanted to throw up listening to him & Colin Cowherd try to double team Danny Kanell on sportscenter. He said you can't look at Ohio State going 12-0 last year when talking about them going ahead of a one loss SEC school. But then seconds later he mentions Alabama's two previous national championships when saying they should play for the title if Ohio State & Auburn both lose. He's the biggest SEC & Alabama homer around & a perfect fit for ESPN.
