Alabama fans will get even more coverage of the nation's No. 1 team in 2017 as the two Tuscaloosa affiliates will be airing extended pregame and postgame broadcasts for every Crimson Tide game.

Beginning this Saturday, 'Gameday All Day' will provide fans a chance to listen to nearly 12 hours of Alabama football coverage exclusively on 95.3 the Bear and Tide 102.9/100.9 in Tuscaloosa. That's more time for your calls, more time for analysis, and more time spent on the premier program in college football.

Here's how the full gameday schedule will run each week on both radio stations:

5 hours prior to kickoff

The Tide Tailgate Show presented by Yuengling starts each gameday with two hours of discussion, phone calls, and interviews. The show features two-time Alabama All-American and 2009 national champion Mike Johnson, SEC broadcaster Mick Gillispie, and Tide 102.9 Digital Managing Editor Ben George. The show broadcasts live from Rounders on the Strip for every home game and will be on location at Game-X in Atlanta for the season opener.

3 hours prior to kickoff

The Crimson Tide Sports Network begins its pregame coverage for Alabama football.


Eli Gold, Phil Savage, and Chris Stewart will have the call of the game each week. Turn your TVs down and your radios up.

Immediately following the game

The Crimson Tide Sports Network will have postgame coverage as soon as the final whistle blows. Hear from Coach Saban and the players as they react to the outcome.

Extended postgame coverage

Starting as soon as CTSN goes off the air, we're back with Tide Post Game Live presented by Yuengling. Mick Gillispie and Mike Johnson will take your calls and give you the first opportunity to sound off on the game. On home games, you can be a part of the show by coming out to The Wheelhouse Pub for the live broadcast.

This multi-station simulcast will air every gameday this season to give Alabama fans the coverage they deserve. Make sure you download the all-new 95.3 the Bear app and the RadioPup app to take 'Gameday All Day' with you.
