Today ESPN announced Fitz’s Big Basketball Binge-A-Thon Bonanza, a 12-hour show exclusively on Twitter (live.twitter.com/espn or via @ESPN) beginning Thursday, March 15 at 12 p.m. ET. Hosted by ESPN’s Jason Fitz, the show will watch and cover the entire first day of the NCAA Men’s Tournament from noon ET until the final buzzer of the games that evening. Fitz will be interacting with fans and followers on Twitter while he watches the games live from Bristol, Conn. with special appearances by a bevy of ESPN personalities, including:

Cy Admundson Molly Qerim
Will Cain Jalen Rose
Chris Canty Darren Rovell
Dalen Cuff Michael Smith
Elle Duncan Maria Taylor
Sean Farnham Jay Williams
Myron Medcalf Clinton Yates
…and many more!

“I’m unbelievably pumped to watch one of the best days of the sports calendar year with some of the most awesome people at ESPN,” said Fitz. “We’re going to do exactly what everyone wants to do on the first full day of the tournament: Watch basketball, do stupid stuff, eat tons of food and have a blast.”

This will be the second show that Fitz has hosted on Twitter. Last fall, he co-hosted the Twitter exclusive Ranking Reactions with Mike Golic, Jr., which featured real-time conversation as fans and experts reacted to the latest college football rankings and news.
