Even with all the uncertainty and abnormalities in the world, there is still hope. And during this time of year, that hope is in the form of the transition of the stickiness of Summer into the chill of Fall ushering in a new football season.
Football is about community. It’s about bringing people together in communities on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays to watch our favorite high school, college and NFL teams take the field.
Here at Bearcast Media, the sports staff is coming together once again with a great lineup of weekly recorded shows. It’s continuing our mission to be the premiere media organization on campus. While any restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic may cause us to not able to commentate some or any UC Athletics games and events, we’re still proceeding ahead with our weekly recorded shows that cover the Bearcats, Bengals and the NFL.
New this year, Bearcast Media will be distributing these shows in podcast form on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
With that, here is this year’s show lineup/casting.
