WNBC to Air Giants GameDay

NBC Universal’s New York flagship WNBC announced Tuesday (July 22) a partnership with the New York Giants to air Giants GameDay. Beginning Sept. 6, the exclusive game preview show will air Saturdays 7 to 7:30 p.m. and will continue if the Giants advance to the playoffs.

New York Giants Bob Papa will be the host of the new program with legendary Giants linebacker Carl Banks as co-host. A regular feature of the program will include an exclusive interview with Coach Tom Coughlin in a “tale of the tape” segment.

The new program rounds out WNBC’s commitment to Giants programming. In addition to the new program, WNBC will be televising two of the Giants’ 2008 preseason games on Aug. 7 and Aug. 28, as well as the NBC network’s NBC Sunday Night Football prime time games during the regular season.

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with the New York Giants and the NFL,” said Tom O’Brien, president and general manager.
