“Trojans Live” is a weekly, comprehensive look at one of the most storied athletic programs in America. The hour-long, first-of-its-kind broadcast devoted to USC sports features student athletes and coaches from all USC sports, game previews and a regular dose of behind-the-scenes insight and breaking news.
Produced by FOX Sports West and USC Sports Properties (a division of Fox Sports), the program is hosted by John Jackson, a former NFL wide receiver and two-sport Academic All-American at USC, alongside Jordan Moore, USC broadcaster and director of social media for USC Athletics. Trojans’ radio announcer, Pete Arbogast, will also be a frequent guest contributor on the show.
The show airs before a live audience at The Lab, a gastropub located at 3500 Figueroa Street in Los Angeles, across the street from the USC campus. The public is welcome and audience members will have the chance to ask questions on-air and meet the coaches and guests. Listeners can also submit questions via Twitter using #TrojansLive. “Trojans Live” also streams on TheBeast980.com and www.usctrojans.com.
