The Paul Finebaum Show makes its golf course debut on Wednesday, May 18 for its second stop in three consecutive weeks of remote shows. Last week the show was live from Gainesville, Fla. for the No.7 Vanderbilt at No. 1 Florida baseball game. In two weeks, May 31 and June 1, the show closes out its mini-road trip with its second annual trip to the Southeastern Conference Spring Meetings in Destin, Fla.

Finebaum Regions Pro-Am

The Paul Finebaum Show is live from the Regions Tradition Pro-Am golf tournament on Wednesday, May 18. Finebaum Caddy ShakFinebaum’s set, perched on the Champions Club patio, looking down the 18th fairway, will host interviews with five SEC football coaches – Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban, Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart, Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn, Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze, Mississippi State Head Coach Dan Mullen – as well as Alabama Basketball Head Coach Avery Johnson, sports icon Bo Jackson, SEC legend Steve Spurrier and professional golfer John Daly.

In addition to high-profile interviews throughout the show, Taylor Hicks, winner of the fifth season of American Idol, will perform an acoustic set live.

 

Finebaum Spring Meetings

For the second year, Finebaum is live from the SEC Spring Meetings in Destin, Fla. where football and basketball coaches, as well as school and conference administrators gather annually. Coaches from a variety of schools and sports, as well as Commissioner Greg Sankey, are expected to appear on the show over Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1.

Last year’s show on the Gulf Coast proved particularly influential to the year’s events. Coach Dawn Staley’s encouragement of Finebaum to attend a South Carolina women’s basketball game (full story) resulted in a courtside show on Monday, Feb. 8 during the Gamecock’s NCAA Tournament run.

In addition to the South Carolina trip, The Paul Finebaum Show has visited the previously mentioned Florida baseball game (photos) and the SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament in Nashville, Tenn. The show also visited all 14 schools during the fall, previewing each campus on Friday prior to SEC Nation’s Saturday show.

The Paul Finebaum Show airs on SEC Network every weekday from 3 to 7 p.m. ET, taking calls from across the SEC and the country.
