New season, new host for CCHA All Access
The second season of CCHA All Access on FSN Detroit features the same great behind-the-scenes look at college hockey’s most dynamic conference, but the show takes on a new feel with the arrival of host Michael Kosta.
Kosta, a professional stand-up comic, brings his wit, enthusiasm and energy to CCHA All Access, which is scheduled to premiere Friday, Jan. 25 at 7:00 & 10:00 PM. A new episode of the 10-week show premieres each subsequent Friday at 6:30 or 7:00 PM and also airs Saturdays at 11:00 AM.
The premiere edition is the first of a two-part episode originating from Fairbanks, Alaska where Kosta and the All Access crew was on hand to see the Alaska Nanooks host the defending national champion Michigan State Spartans. They followed first year coach Doc DelCastillo, captain T.J. Campbell, and an army of Nanook faithful to get an up-close look at hockey in the great white north. From the practice ice, to the film sessions, to the locker room speeches…from 60-below afternoon temperatures, 30-foot tall inflatable polar bears and dogsled rides, Fairbanks is unlike no other hockey town (see a preview of the first episode at www.foxsports.com/detroit).
It’s all in a weekend’s work for the crew that spans the CCHA to take you on-campus and in the middle of the action. Other destinations this season include Notre Dame, Ferris State, Bowling Green, Lake Superior State, Michigan State and Michigan.
