ESPNU Selects College Campuses for Road Trip Series

To tweet this release: http://es.pn/EURoadTrip

ESPNU Road Trip, a 30-minute series that taps into the college football tradition, rivalry and revelry on college campuses across the nation, has announced sites for the 2010 season. The show typically airs Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU, following the Saturday game featured in the series that week. 

This season Road Trip will canvas 11 campuses targeting the most appealing game of the weekend. While sites have been determined for the first seven weeks, games will be selected in the last four weeks based on relevancy to the national scene. 

Jonathan Drubner and new co-host Marianela Pereyra will host the series. In addition to the 30-minute episodes, Drubner and Pereyra can be seen on ESPN.com’s Road Trip webisodes.

The duo will seek out crowds of fans to give viewers an up-close look at the pageantry surrounding each game, including band and cheerleader performances and tailgate parties. The show also focuses on the local area and will feature favorite dining establishments and popular hangouts. Road Trip will look to integrate students and the game’s players with as much access as possible to help further illustrate culture and traditions on campus.

As part of the College Sports PR team at ESPN, it has been an exciting adventure for me since I joined the worldwide leader in July 2010, working on college football, college basketball, college lacrosse and WNBA properties. I began my love of sports as the manager of several high school sports teams and continued that hobby into college. While at Quinnipiac, I worked in the Sports Information Department, which led me to a summer internship at the New Haven Ravens, a AA baseball team, and an eventual job with the Athletic Communications Department at the University of Connecticut. After my five-year stint at Connecticut, I spent six years as Director of Communications at the BIG EAST Conference in Providence, R.I. before joining ESPN.
