Cheney, Wash. – The Eastern Washington University Athletics Department will be airing a live video broadcast of National Signing Day the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 4.
The broadcast will begin at 8 a.m. PT on WatchBigSky.com and the free “WatchBigSky” app, and will last two hours.
Hosted by Larry Weir, the play-by-play voice for EWU Football and Men’s Basketball, the show will highlight the excitement of National Signing Day, which is the first day that high school seniors in football and soccer are eligible to sign National Letters of Intent with universities.
Those that tune into the broadcast will have the first chance to find out which high school seniors have signed for Eastern moments after their NLI’s arrive via fax.
The broadcast will feature appearances from EWU head football coach Beau Baldwin and the Eagles’ position coaches, along with Football student-athlete Cooper Kupp and Chad Bodnar, EWU Women’s Soccer head coach.
Joel Vickery, Assistant Athletic Director of Compliance and Laurel Hosmer, Director of Development and External Revenue, will also be interviewed.
