Hall of Fame broadcaster Keith Jackson and former Michigan star and Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones will host respective shows on the Big Ten Network this fall, the channel announced today. Jackson will host a program called “Big Ten Icons” that looks at iconic coaches from Big Ten history. Last year “Big Tens Icons” (also hosted by Jackson) looked at the top 50 student-athletes in conference history. Jones will host “BTN LiveBIG,” one of the network’s six new shows this fall, which will spotlight current and former members of the Big Ten community who have given “big” to the world at large, including Tony Dungy (of Minnesota), Charles Woodson (of Michigan) and Devin Harris (of Wisconsin).
Jones’ show will premiere Monday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. and run for eight episodes. Jackson’s show will premiere later in the fall, run into the winter, and air Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
