The Viking Athletic Partnership today announced that on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. it will sponsor a live call-in program designed to re-introduce Portlanders to exciting developments in the Portland State Athletic program and the future of the Vikings.

The 90-minute program will air live on Comcast SportsNet and will be hosted by Dwight Jaynes and feature VAP President David Hersh.  

Live appearances on the program will include:
Athletic Director - Torre Chisholm
Head Football Coach - Nigel Burton
Men's Basketball Coach - Tyler Geving
Women's Basketball Coach - Sherri Murrell
Voice of the Pavilion Project - Bill Schonely

Special appearances by Dream Weaver and Jack Cain and major announcements can be expected as part of the program.

"We want a chance to have a candid conversation with the people of Portland about athletics at Oregon's largest university and Portland's only top-tier football program. We have to improve and we want to listen to our community as part of the building process" Hersh said. 

"The goal of the VAP is to build the Viking Nation," said Chisholm. "Some of our many strengths are locality and accessibility.  What better way to demonstrate these assets than to hear directly from our current and future fans?"   

"Comcast SportsNet has had a great relationship with Portland State Athletics for years and we're happy to provide an interactive forum for the Viking Athletic Partnership to announce their future plans," said Comcast SportsNet Vice President and General Manager Larry Eldridge.
