WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Dana Holgorsen Show and the Bob Huggins Show have found a new home at Kegler’s, Morgantown’s most popular sports bar and restaurant.

Hosted by Mountaineer play-by-play voice Tony Caridi, Coach Holgorsen’s popular call-in radio show will air 7-9 p.m. on Thursday nights on the Mountaineer Sports Network from IMG. The season’s first show will be broadcast from Kegler’s on Thursday, August 29.

Kegler’s is very proud to be part of WVU football and basketball,” said Jerry Lorenze, Owner of Kegler’s Sports Bar and Lounge. “As the host location for the two sports radio shows, we look forward to some great Mountaineer football and basketball. We appreciate all the hard work coach Holgorsen and coach Huggins and their staffs have been putting in, along with the terrific student-athletes representing WVU, and we believe it will pay off with many big wins this year.”

The Coaches’ live broadcasts are part of Kegler’s new six-year sponsorship agreement with WVU, which was brokered by IMG College, the university’s new multimedia rights partner. There are currently 40 affiliates in the Mountaineer Sports Network from IMG.

Kegler’s, the premier location for sports in Morgantown, features more than 45 HD TVs, including three 80-inch LED TVs covering Mountaineers and NCAA sports as well as the major professional sports.
