DIRECTV, the nation’s most popular video service, and Fox Sports Net (FSN), are making broadcast history through a syndication deal that enables FSN to distribute DIRECTV’s popular The Dan Patrick Show – seen on DIRECTV’s The 101® Network – to its regional sports networks (RSNs) and affiliates, including FOX Sports Ohio.

The innovative TV show, based on the nationally syndicated weekday radio program, The Dan Patrick Show, will be launched beginning Monday, Oct. 25. The show airs live, from 9 a.m. to noon ET, Monday through Friday.

“I’m proud that the show we’ve developed will be seen by even more fans,” said Patrick. “DIRECTV took a radio show and seamlessly developed it into a hybrid of radio and television in one show. And it’s not stagnant. It’s not us doing a radio show with two cameras showing us talking. We will show you the good and bad of what goes on during a show and during the breaks. If we screw up, we can’t hide it.”

Jeff Krolik, executive vice president, FSN, added, “Dan’s is a unique talent who has a razor-sharp wit and a piercing insight into the world of sports. The show consistently delivers great, timely guests, smart conversation, and an unpredictable cast of characters that will connect with our viewers.”

show format using Patrick’s trademark humor and interaction with his production staff that includes Paul Pabst, Patrick O’Connor, Andrew Perloff and Todd Fritz, known as “The Danettes.”
