New to the tour is a full length TV show called Tailgate Nation which will be shot on location each week from the Tailgate Tour and broadcast across the Versus National Network before the game of the week. “We are looking to make this the best presentation yet. We have a few more major announcements in the coming weeks that will add to a even larger national media campaign” says Freedman. “This program is about delivering a 360 degree turn-key marketing/media strategy to our sponsors. When our program is live, we are the main pre- game event outside the stadium before the big game”.
