KGMB9 has been awarded the rights to produce and telecast the 2006 “June Jones Television Show,” Herman Frazier, University of Hawai’i athletics director said.
The first of 15 shows will be telecast Friday, Sept. 1, at 6:30 p.m. with a kickoff special, previewing the 2006 season and the opener at Alabama against the Crimson Tide.
The weekly program will air each Sunday at 10:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 3, and conclude with a season wrap-up show on Dec. 7.
The show will be re-telecast each Monday at 6:30 p.m. for a total of 29 telecasts during the course of the season.
“KGMB9 will air June’s show in two wonderful time slots each week, which will be convenient for our fans and provide wonderful exposure for the program,” Frazier said. “We’re confident KGMB9 will do a fantastic job with the production and provide UH fans with an entertaining and informative look at Warrior football.”
In addition to a comprehensive review of the Warriors’ most-recent contest, the fast-paced show will include: highlights, interviews, features, and expert analysis and insights from Coach Jones.
The show will be hosted by Liz Chun, KGMB9 sports director, with assistance from Steve Uyehara, KGMB9 sports reporter.
KGMB9 General Manager Rick Blangiardi will serve as executive producer, while Scott Humber will be senior producer and John Allen, creative director.
“We are extremely pleased to be afforded this opportunity and challenge to provide the people of Hawai`i with a first-class coaches’ show,” Blangiardi said. “Our goal will be to make the coaches, players and fans feel proud of our great football program.”
