It remains to be seen whether Todd Graham's "high octane" approach is sustainable on the football field over the course of a full season. But that speed is undoubtedly perfect for a weekly one-hour radio show.â†µ
Beginning August 27th, KTAR 620 AM will broadcast the "High Octane Hour" every Monday from 7:00-8:00pm at the Thirsty Lion Pub. Joining Graham will be 620 AM personality Doug Franz. The premise is a "four quarter" show with player interviews, interaction with the live audience, Q&A via social media and more.
Running contrary to the beliefs of many in the national media (and Pitt fans), this seems to be the latest in an increasingly long line of action items that shows that Graham "get's it". From the moment of his hiring, Graham has stressed the importance of connecting with the community, and to his credit, his actions have backed that up.â†µ
From countless speaking engagements, to meet and greets, free children's football clinics, lunches with students and media and so on, Graham is taking that high octane approach around the state, and now to the airwaves.â†µ
Twelve shows are schedule to be broadcast, but more will be made should ASU make a postseason run.â†µ
