The new broadcast continues Fox16's expansion of local sports coverage that began this past fall with "Fearless Friday" and "Fearless Friday: Statewide Edition" during the high school football season. "Final Score with Wess Moore" aired periodically following Arkansas Razorback football games. After receiving excellent feedback from viewers, it was clear Central Arkansas is hungry for additional local sports coverage.
"There are so many stories and so many ideas I would like to do on a nightly basis but can't due to time constraints," said Sports Director and Host Wess Moore. "Now I have that time to share these things with our viewers every Sunday night."
"Fox16 has made a commitment to being to go-to place for local sports coverage," said Fox16 News Director Austin Kellerman. "We're excited about the opportunity to expand our on-air offerings to viewers and highlight the great work being done by Wess, Jason Snavely, Jay Bir and other members of the Fox16 team."
The broadcast will feature top highlights from the previous week along with a look ahead to what's scheduled for the next few days. The show will also feature the biggest names in Arkansas sports as on-set guests -- plus, Wess Moore's popular commentary segment "One More Thought." The show is also a place for you to have your say in what's covered and discussed.
"I want to have the viewers involved," added Moore. "Think sports talk radio comes to TV! We will encourage viewers to tweet us their opinions and take questions through a weekly mailbag segment."
The first broadcast hits the air this Sunday, March 2 at 10 p.m.
