ABOUT THE SHOW

Comcast SportsNet New England is the official home of UMass Sports Insider, the University of Massachusetts athletics high-definition television show.

The show airs on CSNNE every Saturday morning at 11 a.m. with new episodes premiering every other week. Fans around the country can watch UMass Sports Insider throughout the week on Fox College Sports Atlantic.

Hosted by the “Voice of the Minutemen” Josh Maurer, the show will feature 13 original high-definition episodes during the 2014-15 school year.
