So here’s the press release going out today. Thought I’d share it here first.

Get seen on Ion TV!

Debuting Sept. 3, it’s:

The Tailgate with John Lopez

Longtime nationally recognized sports writer and broadcaster John P. Lopez will take his wit, humor and keen interviewing skills to “The Tailgate with John Lopez,” debuting Sept. 3 at 8:30 a.m. on Ion TV.

The weekly rapid-fire, gameday-type sports talk show will be taped from the Texan Buick-GMC Plaza outside Turner Stadium in Humble.

The 30-minute show will take on all the hot sports topics of the week, offer unique insight from A-list guests and feature “Coach” Bert Brocker and an assortment of featured experts.

Unlike the usual two- and three-minute nightly sportscasts, The Tailgate allows viewers to be a part of in-depth talk and opinion on topics and issues unique to the Greater Houston-area sportscape.

 The Tailgate also will feature a weekly high school boys’ or girls’ “Team of the Week” and the, “Talk of The Tailgate,” featuring an extra-curricular star outside the sports realm.

Below is the taping schedule, which will feature former NFL great Aaron Glenn and former Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson at the Aug. 25 debut taping. More guests and dates will be announced soon.
