ESPN Radio will broadcast live from the Pasadena City Hall on Monday, Jan 6. 2014. Residents and visitors will have free admission to see and hear the sports personalities giving analysis on the BCS Championship game between Number 1 Florida and Number 2 Auburn.
It’s a double dose of major college football in Pasadena starting with the Rose Bowl Game Jan 1.
The Herd with Colin Cowherd will kick off the on-site programs at 10 a.m. ET and will be followed by SVP & Russillo (Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo) at 1 p.m. and a special three-hour ESPN Radio College GameDay: BCS Special at 4 p.m. Russillo, Trevor Matich and Brad Edwards will host.
Pasadena City Hall is 100 N. Garfield at Holly Street. Parking may be limited immediately around city hall on that day.
Parking structures are available in Old Town Pasadena within 3 city blocks and for shoppers who patronize the Paseo to the south on Colorado Boulevard.
Street parking may be available along Union Street, east of Los Robles.
ESPN Radio will broadcast the game at 8:30 ET with Mike Tirico, Todd Blackledge, Holly Rowe and Joe Schad.
The events are a boost for Pasadena’s already strong tourism trade. According to a study released earlier in the year by the City of Pasadena, in 2011 visitor expenditures generated $475.4 million in revenue for the city, a 6 percent increase from 2010 and a 12.6% increase from 2008.
