‘Countdown to Kickoff’ expands to 60 minutes

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Randy Ingram, Vice President and General Manager of WISH-TV announced today that the station is expanding Countdown to Kickoff, its weekly Colts pre-game show, to one hour beginning this Sunday, October 27, 2019, at 11:00 a.m.

“WISH-TV’s expanded team coverage will kick-off Sundays a half-hour earlier for Colts fans,” said Ingram. “As the Colts lead their division, WISH-TV continues to lead the way in providing viewers the best coverage of our hometown team with Countdown to Kickoff, Indiana’s only one-hour Colts pre-game show.”

WISH-TV’s Emmy award-winning Countdown to Kickoff is hosted by sports director Anthony Calhoun, the voice of Indiana sports. AC is joined each Sunday by WISH-TV’s Charlie Clifford and Olivia Ray, and Colts analysts Bill Brooks and Ken Dilger, and Colts Insider Mike Wells.

WISH-TV’s team of Colts experts provides fans unmatched insight on the buzz surrounding each week’s match-up, as well as the inside scoop on who’s in and who’s out in the moments leading up to kickoff. Starting Sundays at 11:00 a.m., Countdown to Kickoff will now get fans ready even earlier as the first Colts pre-game show of the day.

WISH-TV continues to offer more Colts gameday coverage than any other Indiana television station. The Sports 8 team also provides viewers the only local Colts post-game show, immediately following each game, and a complete gameday wrap-up, with the Colts Pro Bowl tight end Eric Ebron in studio during its award-winning Sports Locker, Sunday nights at 10:15 p.m.
