The coaches' shows of football coach Les Miles, men's basketball coach John Brady, women's basketball coach Pokey Chatman and baseball coach Smoke Laval will be broadcast live from Walk-On's and will be carried throughout the state of Louisiana and beyond.
"We consider ourselves to be an integral part of the LSU game-day experience and are extremely excited to host LSU coaches' shows," said former LSU basketball player Brandon Landry of Walk-On's Bistreaux. "Walk-On's began on the hardwood of LSU's Pete Maravich Assembly Center, so it is fitting that the next chapter of our history with LSU will be as the host of the coaches' shows. It is a great way for us to support LSU athletics as well as Tiger fans."
The first show from Walk-On's, the Les Miles Show presented by Whitney Bank, will air on Wednesday, August 24th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; all other head coaches' shows will air during their respective seasons.
"Walk-On's support through this sponsorship will seal its reputation as the best place outside of LSU to follow the Tigers," said Ward Wyatt, director of sales of LSU Sports Properties. "We are excited about the opportunity to work with these former Tigers and we're confident this relationship will enhance our shows."
LSU Sports Properties is the exclusive marketing and multi-media rights partner of LSU athletics and manages all corporate sponsorship opportunities surrounding the Tigers, including on-premise signage, television, radio, print, internet, game sponsorships, premium hospitality, event marketing and promotions. LSU Sports Properties is a division of Viacom Sports.
