HBCU Gameday announced today that it has signed a partnership with Aspire TV to bring its flagship football program “The No Huddle” to air on the network beginning on Saturdays this fall. “The No Huddle” is a thirty-minute show that previews black college football action and sets the tone for every game on Saturday.
“The No Huddle” began as a groundbreaking online show that brought weekly highlights and interviews from all of the major HBCU schools and conferences.
“This is a huge partnership with Aspire TV that allows HBCU Gameday to expand our platform to linear television. It’s a logical step for us as a company and we really anticipate that the fans will love having a show that adds context to the games that mean the most to them,” said HBCU Gameday founder Steven J. Gaither.
The show will originate from the HBCU Gameday studio in Atlanta with contributions from correspondents across the country. A total of 17 episodes will run beginning September 7 and ending with a Celebration Bowl and season ending special on December 22.
HBCU Sports are always exciting as it not only is about the game, it is also about homecomings, school pride and fellowship. At Aspire TV we are proud to showcase the culture, lifestyle and incredible athleticism from Black Colleges across the country,” said Melissa Ingram, Aspire TV General Manger.
“We are going to bring a lot of authentic content and features that will really ring true within the HBCU culture. Our team has been around HBCUs for the majority of our lives and we understand the nuance and differences that makes Black College football unique and special,” said Wali Pitt, Executive Producer of The No Huddle.
