KPSU to Debut New Portland Trailblazers Talk Show for Upcoming Season
KPSU is excited to announce the launch of "Blazers U", the first college-radio program in Portland dedicated exclusively to the Portland Trailblazers, Wednesday October 13th at 10pm!Ãƒâ€š The show will air live onÃƒâ€š www.kpsu.org and on the PSU campus at 98.1 FM. Hosted by KPSU DJ's and employees Jay Turk and Peter Sampson, the hour long "Blazers U" will feature around-the-horn style panel discussion, live callers, a weekly recap, analysis, and interviews with members of the media as well as members of The Portland Trailblazers organization.
By the numbers, Portland State is the largest University in Oregon. This city is absolutely fanatical about the Trailblazers; it only makes sense to create a show catering to one of the most common passions shared among PSU students.Ãƒâ€š "Blazers U" hosts Jay and Peter aim to translate their grasp of advanced metrics and other aspects of fanatical fandom into a format that even the casual Blazers fan can understand.Ãƒâ€š A rotating weekly panel of analysts is sure to provide differing viewpoints, as are live callers.
Launching on October 13th gives "Blazers U" an episode to cover all of the summer happenings (Batum and Rudy in the World Championships, The acquisition of Wesley Matthews, Oden's Rehab, The Draft, Pritchard's Firing), and a week dedicated to preseason before the launch of the regular season against the Suns Oct 26th.
