Former Jaguars' defensive lineman Jeff Lageman will be joining the
Jaguars broadcast team as a preseason television color analyst and
to host this season's Monday evening football program, "Monday
Night Live!" on WTLV TV-12. Now in its fifth season, "Monday
Night Live!" will once again be broadcast from River City Brewing
Company beginning Monday, September 6, and continuing
throughout the NFL season.
Lageman, one of the league's most popular and knowledgeable
players, hosted a local TV show last year, and is looking forward to
making the move to TV-12, the team's Official Television Station.
During the preseason, Lageman will team with 12NEWS Sports
Director Dan Hicken to provide color commentary for the
preseason games. "I'm excited to continue to be a part of the
Jaguars organization," said Lageman. "I'm looking forward to
working with Dan Hicken and providing viewers with quality
analysis of this season's preseason games."
"We've been fortunate to have a player like Jeff on our football
team," said Dan Connell, Jaguars Senior Vice President of
Marketing. "Jeff has been an integral part of the Jaguars since our
inception and it is exciting that he will continue to play an important
role as the co-host of 'Monday Night Live!' and color analyst on
our preseason television broadcasts."
WTLV President and General Manager Ken Tonning added, "It
takes a special mix of confidence and sports savvy to host an
hour-long broadcast each week. We believe that Jeff Lageman,
teamed up with Dan Hicken, will produce the best, most informative
and entertaining football show available."
Along with Lageman and Hicken, the show will feature regular
appearances from quarterback Mark Brunell and offensive lineman
Tony Boselli. Other key players will be part of the "Monday Night
Live!" guest line up as well.
