After a two-week hiatus, The Paul Finebaum Show will return to its regular weekday programming window on SEC Network with an audio-only format, beginning at 3 p.m. ET on Monday, March 30. The show continued to air on ESPN Radio over the past two weeks, providing a platform for scheduled guests and Finebaum faithful to discuss how the sports landscape has shifted with the absence of live sports.
“Over the past two weeks, the discussions on our show have ranged from the loss of sports to the loss of jobs, income, and even homes; from listeners feeling hopeful for the future to others who just needed someone to talk to,” Finebaum said. “Despite all of us adjusting to this new normal and distancing ourselves from each other, we’re probably more connected right now than we’ve been in a long time. I’m really proud of the conversations and discussions we’ve had on the show, especially over these past few weeks, and look forward to returning to television and continuing to support and uplift one another during such an uncertain time.”
SEC Network’s televised format of the show will feature a slate sharing dial-in information for callers, showcasing the live audio from the ESPN Radio broadcast of the show.
