The excitement started early Friday morning as the kick off to Fresno State football began with a slew of early morning radio and television broadcasts live at Bulldog Stadium.
The coverage of the 2010-2011 Bulldog season launched into action at 5 a.m., with the KMPH Great Day morning show and continued from there as six radio stations and four television groups weighed in on the ins and outs of the highly anticipated seven-home game season that will be underway Sept. 4 at home against Big East Champion Cincinnati.
Many Valley media members pitched their tents and camped out at the stadium to interview head coach Pat Hill and quarterback Ryan Colburn along with other leading starters to dig into the action that is to come on the field. Radio stations covering today's events include KMJ 580, ESPN Deportes, ESPN Radio with Paul Swearingen, and the morning show with Jennifer Lipp on 105.1 The Blaze.
The Fresno State spirit squad and dance team, along with Time Out and Victor E. Bulldog also took to the field with the team for great photo opportunities to help bring out the spirit that is Fresno State and rev up fans for an exciting season.
