ACC Network (ACCN), the 24/7 national platform dedicated to ACC sports, will debut a new personality-driven news and information studio show In Play Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET.
The 30-minute program hosted by Kelsey Riggs and EJ Manuel, will deliver all things ACC related – and exactly as the name of the show suggests, anything and everything is on the table each Tuesday evening. In Play will also feature interviews with legendary ACC athletes and coaches, and discussion surrounding timely topics and big-picture events. Guests for Tuesday’s premiere include North Carolina and NBA legend Vince Carter, and Tampa Bay Buccaneer and former Pitt running back LeSean McCoy.
“Kelsey and EJ have dynamic personalities that will be entertaining for fans to see in this new show,” said ACCN coordinating producer Aaron Katzman. “We aim to entertain viewers with a mix of important off-the-field discussions and fun light-hearted charm all while peeling back the curtain on what it’s like to be a student-athlete in the ACC.”
