WPXI-TV and Trib Total Media is teaming up for a new Sunday night all-sports talk show: The Final Word.
The first airing will be this Sunday, 11:35 p.m.
The discussion will be lively and informed, built on a rotation of WPXI and Trib personalities, but it also will be very heavy on contributions from you. We’ll be taking questions from viewers, including one per show through a video feed. We’ll have a nonstop Twitter stream to get your views even while we’re giving ours.
We’ll also have a live online stream, as well as video podcasts available on both outlets’ Web sites, because we want Pittsburgh sports fans everywhere to be able to see this.
I could go on here — if it isn’t showing here, I’m pretty excited about this — but suffice it to say it won’t be like anything you’ve seen on local TV, based on the plans I was shown this afternoon up at WPXI’s headquarters. First-class stuff all the way.
The WPXI personalities participating will be Richie Walsh, Bill Phillips and Alby Oxenreiter. The Trib will have a couple of us each week, and that will rotate based on areas of expertise, beat coverage, etc. We’ll also have other participants, including some that might surprise.
