Fairchild radio, TV shows back for another season

August 17, 2009
By Andrew Woerpel

CSU football fans looking for inside information and analysis right from Head Coach Steve Fairchild again have two solid opportunities this season.

Radio show debuts Sept. 2

New Voice of the Rams Jerry Schemmel hosts the Coors Light Steve Fairchild Coach’s Show, which airs on 560 KLZ – the flagship station for the CSU Radio Network – beginning Sept. 2. The show airs live on most Wednesdays at 7 p.m. MT throughout the season. There will be no show on Nov. 11 due to the team’s bye week, and the final show will air on Monday, Nov. 23, due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Stonehouse Grille, 125 S. College Ave. in Fort Collins’ historic Old Town district near the CSU campus, hosts the show. Stonehouse offers high-caliber pub fare with a Scottish twist, as well as multiple HDTVs for viewing sports and other special events.

Be part of the live audience

Fans are encouraged to attend the show and make up the live audience. The show features analysis from the just-completed contest and previews the week's upcoming game. Fans who aren’t able to be part of the audience can still ask Fairchild questions. Producers answer phones during each show to put fans on live with the coach. The toll-free number is 1-866-702-7691.

Fans also have the opportunity to e-mail questions at any time, by visiting the show’s page on

The second season of the Steve Fairchild Show on KUSA-TV, Channel 9, premieres Sunday night, Sept. 13, at 11 p.m. MT, on the station with Denver’s No. 1-rated newscast.

With Fairchild, host Susie Wargin breaks down highlights from the Rams’ game played the previous day, looks ahead to the next contest, and interviews a CSU player in studio. The show is produced by Jeff Dressel and Matt Arnold. David Hunt is the station’s executive sports producer.

The show airs every Sunday night at 11 p.m. during the season. There will be no show on Nov. 15 during the team’s bye week. It begins after the Week 2 contest due to the team’s Sunday night opener at CU, Sept. 6.
