MUNCIE, Ind. – Ball State Athletics is excited to announce the launch of its new official athletics podcast: This Week in Ball State Sports. As part of a re-brand to the athletics podcasting space, the show will be released every Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m.
The first show is available on Tuesday, Aug. 29, featuring head football coach Mike Neu, a preview of the Cardinals’ season-opening football game at Kentucky and a conversation with Ball State women’s volleyball senior Lauren Gilliland.
Sponsored by Ball State Athletics corporate partner Gainbridge, This Week in Ball State Sports is a weekly podcast dedicated to showcasing Ball State sports – its teams, its people and its personalities. Each week, Voice of the Cardinals Mick Tidrow chats with Director of Athletics Jeff Mitchell, other administrators, staff members, coaches, and student-athletes for their insight into the events surrounding Ball State Athletics. The show replaces the formerly branded ChirpCast coaches shows and other select podcast episodes.
“We invite our alumni, friends, and fans to connect with our athletics programs through this weekly medium,” said Mitchell. “This Week in Ball State Sports provides a window into how our operation works and offers our talented student-athletes, coaches and staff the opportunity to share their passion for Ball State and to further promote the strength of the Ball State brand.”
“Podcasting is a unique way of telling the stories of our incredible people within Ball State Athletics,” says Tidrow, a two-time Ball State graduate who begins his second year as the play-by-play voice of Cardinals football and basketball programs. “We want to tell the stories of our coaches, athletes, administrators and staff members in an accessible and engaging way.”
Also featured on the weekly show will be a “Monday Mailbag” feature in which Tidrow engages questions from fans.
Each weekly episode is slated to be available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon, iHeartMedia and Google. Searching This Week in Ball State Sports gives access to each episode. Archives of each show can be found at BallStateSports.com.
