Coaches' show has new home

Jul. 19, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Christopher's Eats in Barboursville is the new home of Marshall Thundering Herd radio call-in shows featuring football coach Doc Holliday and men's basketball coach Tom Herrion.

Christopher's Eats is an upscale casual American restaurant at 6005 U.S. 60 East.

"It has been one of my lifelong dreams to host these shows," Christopher's Eats owner Jeremy Adams said. "I have followed Marshall my entire life and feel very close to my alma mater. Marshall has the best and most welcoming fanbase in college athletics, and we will be sure to give fans that same treatment when they come through our doors for these shows."

Marshall coaches shows previously aired from Gino's Pub.

Holliday's show, hosted by Voice of the Herd Steve Cotton, will air Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. during football season on the Thundering Herd IMG Sports Network. Herrion's show airs during basketball season.

George Smalley, general manager of Marshall multi-media rights partner Thundering Herd IMG Sports Marketing, said Christopher's Eats will provide a welcoming atmosphere for fans.
