PRINCETON, N.J. -- To kickoff the 2011 football season, the Ivy League Office is launching a weekly online radio show, "Inside Ivy League Football," which will premier Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.
"Inside Ivy League Football" will take an in-depth look at all the on-field gridiron action and all the news and notes surrounding Ivy football. The 10-episode show will air Wednesdays at 7 p.m. on BlogTalkRadio.com (blogtalkradio.com/insideivyleaguefootball). It will be available on-demand via BlogTalkRadio and IvyLeagueSports.com.
Each episode will be packed with highlights, statistics and expert analysis in its 'The Week in Review' and 'Saturday Spotlight' segments. With its interview segments 'Program Profile,' 'Weekly Award Winner Interview' and 'Alumni Focus,' the show will visit with past and present players, coaches and administrators who impact Ivy football.
Fans and alumni will be able to interact with "Inside" via its social media platforms -- Facebook (Inside Ivy League Football) and Twitter (@insideivyfb) -- as well as provide ideas and content for the show's 'Twitter Talk/Facebook Fodder' segment.
Selected episodes will feature Ivy football trivia with chances to win Ivy League-branded merchandise or a gift certificate to the League's official online store at shop.ivyleaguesports.com.
"Inside Ivy League Football is a vehicle to promote the Ivy League football brand and further engage our fans and alumni who are so passionate about the sport and the schools they follow closely," said Scottie Rodgers, Ivy League Associate Executive Director, Communications.
The show will be hosted by two veteran Ivy broadcasters, Dan Loney and Brian Seltzer.
Loney serves on the broadcast team for Princeton University football, primarily as the color analyst. He has been behind the microphone for more than 2,500 professional, college and high school games in his nearly 20-year broadcasting career. Loney also serves as freelance on-air talent delivering business news for the Wall Street Radio Network, Dow Jones Radio Network and various radio stations throughout the country.
Seltzer is the primary play-by-play voice for Penn football and men's basketball. A 2007 Penn graduate, he served as the Philadelphia Eagles beat reporter for WPEN (97.5 FM The Fanatic/950 AM ESPN) during his senior year, earning two Philadelphia Achievement in Radio (A.I.R.) awards in the Best Sports Reporting category for his coverage. In 2010, Seltzer added duties as the play-by-play broadcaster for the Reading Phillies, the Double-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Sept. 14 premiere episode of "Inside Ivy League Football" will feature interviews with Al Bagnoli, head coach of the two-time defending champion Penn Quakers; Dartmouth senior tailback Nick Schwieger, the 2010 Ivy League Co-Player of the Year, and Ivy League Executive Director Robin Harris.
