Ex-Illini Michael Kosta to star on FOX Sports 1 show
Michael Kosta won four Big Ten Tennis Championships at Illinois. The Illini product went on to add professional tennis player, author and stand-up comedian to his resume. He’s not done yet. Kosta will join Regis Philbin and a cast of eclectic personalities on FOX Sports 1’s CROWD GOES W!LD, starting Monday, Aug. 19, the network announced Monday.
According to a press release, Kosta, Jason Gay, Trevor Pryce, Georgie Thompson and Katie Nolan team with host Philbin on the show that the network refers to as the “nation’s freshest, most unconventional sports program.”
“There are sports news shows, debate shows and shows that present a single point-of-view, but CROWD GOES W!LD is aiming for a fresh approach,” Executive Producer Michael Davies said in the relase. “CROWD GOES W!LD is going to live in the moment, presenting multiple points of view, with the conversation often influenced by the audience through social interaction.”
