The “coach speak” type show has been around for as long as college football has existed.
Last week was the debut of the “Bryan Harsin Show,” a 30 minute show that deals with all things Arkansas State Red Wolves.
The show features the Leader of the Pack, Head Coach Bryan Harsin and is hosted by Associate Athletic Director Mickey Ryan.
“Shows like this have been around for such a long time. I remember when I was going to school and they would play shows like these on a weekly basis,” Ryan said.
Each college football show tends to add its own set of twists and turns. The “Bryan Harsin Show” is no exception.
The show offers a wide variety of things a typical Arkansas State football fan would enjoy, such as game highlights, postgame press conferences with coaches and players, and possible previews of next week’s opponent.
However, “The Bryan Harsin Show” also employs different elements to its programming.
“We’ll always have some highlights of the first and second half. Coach Harsin will be with us and break down the plays for us, telling us why or why not that play worked in a certain situation,” Ryan said.
The goal is not just to learn about plays but to get more of an insight on the team.
“We try to go in-depth with our coverage of Arkansas State football. We want people to have access to the sides of coaches and players that they don’t get to see on the football field,” Ryan said. “We’ll try to do some feature pieces on someone like an assistant or a player people may not be familiar with.”
Red Wolf fans can tune-in to show support for their team.
“This show is practically a 30 minute infomercial if you’re a die-hard Red Wolves fan,” Ryan said.
“We’re trying to use shows like this to help strengthen the unity of not only our school, but our community as well.”
Arkansas State students and fans have two ways in which they can watch this program.
The show airs on Sunday evenings following the late night news on KAIT8 and the Region Eight market, and it also airs on THV11 on Sunday evenings following late night news coverage. The show is also in the finishing process of being placed online.
