Root Sports

ROOT SPORTS has increased its coverage of the West Virginia University Mountaineers as part of the regional sports network's new Wild & Wonderful Sports statewide programming line-up; it was announced by Shawn McClintock, ROOT SPORTS Senior Vice President & General Manager, Aug. 29, 2011.

"We announced our Wild & Wonderful Sports programming concept last week and are pleased to be able to add even more quality content to the package of WVU football and basketball programming ROOT SPORTS will carry this fall," said McClintock.

Prior to each WVU football home game, including home games airing on other sports networks, ROOT SPORTS will air a LIVE Mountaineer Game Time show Saturday mornings (or appropriate game day) at 11:00 a.m.

Kicking off Wild & Wonderful Sports will be the weekly football press conference featuring WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen televised each Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. throughout the season.

Additionally, Mountaineers 360, a series of five one-hour specials featuring former players and WVU sports heritage, will be produced by the Mountaineer Sports Network and shown on ROOT SPORTS throughout the year as part of the network's Wild & Wonderful Sports.

More than 15 cable and satellite providers across the state of West Virginia carry ROOT SPORTS and therefore will be providing the Wild & Wonderful Sports content. WVU Sports fans are encouraged to check local listings for the ROOT SPORTS channel location and Wild & Wonderful Sports TV line-up or visit ROOTSPORTS.com for details.
