Beginning this coming week, Ferris State University Athletics will debut its second podcast addition to the Bulldog Sports Network lineup. The new show, joining alongside the recently released hockey program called "Off the Ice", will be named "Behind the Bulldogs."
Co-hosted by Athletics Communications Assistant Brandon Wirth and FSU sports communication alum Joe Nagy, the new series will cover all 17 sports at Ferris State with matchup previews, game recaps, stats, analysis, and "behind the scenes" interviews with Bulldog coaches, players, and staff. "Behind the Bulldogs" is produced in collaboration with Ferris State Athletics and NewsRadio WBRN at Mentor Partners, Inc.
"This new show is going to give family, friends, and fans an exclusive inside look about life in Bulldog Athletics," Wirth said. "Whether its players in competition, coaches in the film room, or staff at a venue, this program will give Bulldog Country a chance to learn more about their favorite teams, players and coaches."
As a re-branded expansion of the popular show, "The MVSP," Wirth and Nagy are excited to return to the microphones to cover the Bulldogs all season long in 2022 and beyond.
"What this podcast has developed into is miles above what we thought we could reach when we first started our freshman year," Nagy said. "I can't be more excited to take this show to the next level professionally and have opportunities that we thought were out of reach before. Even with the change in our goal, the show is the same: showcase the athletes and coaches in a way that most don't get to see them."
Each episode will be approximately 20-25 minutes in duration and will be available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other major podcast platforms. It will also be aired weekly on NewsRadio WBRN every Saturday at 3 p.m. (ET) on 1460 AM, 96.5 and 107.7 FM.
The first episode of the show is slated to be released next Wednesday, Sept. 20, on all platforms. To follow the show, check out the show's social media @BehindTheBulldogs (formerly @TheMVSP) on Instagram, X, and on corresponding Ferris State Athletics team pages.
