For the second consecutive year, SEC Network will have a full set on site at SEC Basketball Media Days. SEC Now and The Paul Finebaum Show are live both days – October 18 and 19 – with a total of 15 hours of SEC Network coverage for the men’s and women’s basketball preview event. The two-day media showcase tips off more than 170 collegiate basketball games scheduled for the SEC Network this year.

SEC Now and The Paul Finebaum Show have a new location at SEC Basketball Media Days this year, as the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will serve as the backdrop for the network’s coverage from Nashville. The SEC Network set in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is adjacent to the Omni Nashville Hotel, where the rest of SEC Basketball Media Days will commence.

Dari Nowkhah will host the SEC Now: Men’s Basketball Media Day coverage on Wednesday, Oct. 18, with Maria Taylor hosting the SEC Now: Women’s Basketball Media Day coverage on Thursday, Oct. 19. Antoine Walker, Sean Farnham and newly-announced SEC Network analyst Jimmy Dykes will join Nowkhah on Wednesday for previews and interviews with SEC coaches and players. Returning analyst and former coach Nell Fortner and University of Georgia coaching legend Andy Landers will match up with Taylor in the Music City for Thursday’s live coverage from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Since the SEC Network launched in 2014, every men’s conference basketball game has been made available on national television and the network’s flagship news & information show, SEC Now, has been on site for the tournament. Fans can stream Wednesday and Thursday’s SEC Basketball Media Days coverage, as well as all SEC Network programming, live on the ESPN App.
