Everyone who resonates with football fans across America joins Fallica Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff, the network’s 2019 college football pregame show to compete with GameDay.
The pregame show was created in line with FOX’s strategy of putting the best game in noon ET, where there has traditionally been less competition from big games on other networks.
The Big Noon Kickoff will feature host Rob Stone along with analysts Urban Meyer, Brady Quinn, Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and Charles Woodson.
The move is somewhat surprising, since Fallica has been at ESPN for so long that he’s almost like a piece of furniture. He started at ESPN in 1995 as a production assistant for ESPN Radio, then joined GameDay in 1996 as a reporter.
He worked behind the scenes on the program and several other ESPN properties until 2013, when he began casting for the show.
“He’s as knowledgeable as anyone I know who’s been around the game, but he’s like an everyday fan, but he sees his unique personality,” ESPN producer Lee Fitting The Athletic reported on Fallica in 2019. “But most importantly, he is genuine and passionate about the sport. And that’s what makes it beautiful.”
