AMHERST, MASS. -
For the second year in a row, Comcast SportsNet New England will serve as the official home of UMass Sports Insider, UMass Athletics' half-hour magazine-style TV show. The first episode of 2014-15 will premiere on Saturday, August 30 at 11 a.m. prior to the Minutemen's football opener against Boston College at Gillette Stadium.
The show airs on CSNNE every Saturday morning at 11 a.m. with new episodes premiering every other week. Fans around the country can also 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. While fall episodes will focus heavily on football, UMass Sports Insider will highlight all aspects of UMass athletics. The show includes behind-the-scenes access, highlights, features, student-athlete profiles, coaching segments, and the popular "lighter side" comedy segment.
"To be able to have our television show once again hosted by Comcast SportsNet New England is another terrific opportunity for our fans and alumni," said UMass Director of Athletics John McCutcheon. "They are one of the top regional sports cable outlets in New England and that gives us the chance to share our success stories and promote our athletic programs throughout the region. We have very much enjoyed our relationship with them and look forward to continuing that into the future."
