FSN North, in partnership with Lammi Sports Management, will telecast a weekly half-hour show titled FSN Live: Huddle Up! throughout the NFL season. FSN Live: Huddle Up! debuts tonight at 9:30 p.m. and will air every Tuesday for 17 weeks.
FSN's Ron Johnson anchors the show with Vikings receiver Nate Burleson, quarterback Brad Johnson, running back Michael Bennett and tackle Mike Rosenthal serving as co-hosts on a rotational basis. In addition to the scheduled co-hosts, a surprise Vikings player will be on-hand for each show.
"FSN Live: Huddle Up! truly gives our viewers an insider look behind the scenes of all of the great Vikings action each week," says FSN North Vice President and General Manager Mike Dimond. Having Nate Burleson, Brad Johnson, Michael Bennett and Mike Rosenthal as co-hosts will provide an unparalleled in-depth review of past action and scouting reports of what's to come. The half-hour show also will be packed full with colorful stories, exciting highlight packages, and other features that go beyond Xs and Os.
FSN Live: Huddle Up! will tape each Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Gameworks in downtown Minneapolis. Gameworks provides fans with the opportunity to see the Vikings guests and participate in the show.
"We are looking forward to a great show by combining top Minnesota Vikings players and the leader in Minnesota sports television production in FSN North," says Lammi Sports Management President Brian Lammi.
