Texans’ All-Pro Running Back, Arian Foster has signed (8/16) with Yahoo! Sports Radio Network, Sirius Satellite Radio and KGOW-AM Houston “The Game” for the 2011 NFL season. The “Arian Foster Show” will air Thursday nights at 6 p.m. CT on 180+ affiliates, featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the Texans and the NFL; commentary and thoughts regarding upcoming games; interviews with notable Texans and their opponents; and insightful discussion and debate with network hosts, Bob Berger and Craig Shemon. For those who may not know, Foster was a philosophy major and is an avid writer of poetry, so this show should be pretty enlightening.
“This show will be about football–from the insider’s perspective. Anyone who knows me knows that I call it like I see it. I am a serious football player and an avid student of the game. Fans around the country want to hear a forthright and honest take on what is going on around the league so they will get that,” said Foster. “But I am more than a football player. I am a father, a poet and a free-thinker, so we are going to get into some other cool things as our discussions take us wherever they will. This show is definitely not going to be your run-of-the-mill football ‘talking-head’ kind of thing. This show will be edgy, fun and unlike anything sports fans have heard before. I have opinions about practically everything and I am not afraid to share them.”
In addition to the weekly “Arian Foster Show,” KGOW will air a call-in show with John Granato every Monday morning during the season at 8:05 a.m. CT featuring Foster. On Tuesdays at noon, Foster and sports pundit, Sean Pendergast will produce a live, 30-minute local show every from a local Houston restaurant.
