LA Station Debuts Shows for Rams’ Return

By Kevin Eck 

Los Angeles Fox-owned station KTTV is launching two shows to cover the Rams’ return to the city.

Fox 11 Pigskin Preview and Fox 11 Sports Wrap, hosted by former Ram and Hall of Fame offensive lineman Jackie Slater, former Rams QB Vince Ferragamo and Liz Habib. Good Day Game Day will also air as a special edition on Sunday.

Fox 11 Pigskin Preview is a 30-minute show airing Fridays at 10:30 pm. Fox 11 Sports Wrap is a 30-minute postgame show airing on most NFL double header Sundays at around 5 p.m. KTTV says on single late game days, the program will air at 4 p.m.


“We are thrilled that the Rams are returning to Los Angeles and excited to mark this historic moment with two new shows devoted to this franchise,” said vp and GM Bob Cook. “We are fortunate to have Liz Habib alongside Hall of Famer Jackie Slater and the legendary Vince Ferragamo to lead our Rams coverage this season.”

FOX 11 Pigskin Preview will air game highlights, player reaction, and a look ahead to each game, as well as a look back at past Rams who played in Los Angeles. Fox 11 Sports Wrap is a postgame show wrapping up the day in the NFL.

“You’re not going to get anything better than what you get from two Rams legends,” said Liz Habib. “Like Vince and Jackie.”
