New Orleans - Bruno's Tavern (located at 7538 Maple Street) will serve as the host site for the Bob Toledo weekly radio show this season. The one-hour program will air on AM 690 WIST, the flagship station for Tulane football, each Wednesday night beginning Sept. 5 from 7-8 p.m.
The show will be hosted by Todd Graffagnini, the "Voice of the Green Wave," and will feature Coach Toledo, Tulane assistant football coaches and players, and special guest appearances by coaches and student-athletes from the various sport programs in the TU athletic department.
"Bruno's Tavern remains a great New Orleans and Tulane establishment," said Marc Tuttle, General Manager of the Tulane-ISP Sports Network. "This is a great fit for our radio shows. We know our fans will enjoy the great Bruno's food and atmosphere at each show. Tulane/ISP Sports thanks Selby and David Melius for their continued support of Tulane athletics."
Unlike in years past, the Tulane football coach's show will not feature a call-in format for fans. This season, Green Wave fans will be asked to email their questions to Coach Toledo via a form which will be located on the official athletics website of Tulane Athletics: www.TulaneGreenWave.com, and TU's first-year head coach will answer selected questions on the air.
"The Bruno's Tavern family is excited to be a part of the rebirth of Tulane and Green Wave Athletics. Having been supporters of athletics at Tulane since 1934, we are proud and honored to be the new host of the coach's show," said Selby and David Melius, owners of Bruno's Tavern.
The Green Wave opens the 2007 season on Saturday, Sept. 8, when Tulane takes on Mississippi State at 6 p.m. in the Louisiana Superdome. Season tickets remain on sale through the Tulane Athletics Ticket Office. For ticket information, visit the ticket office on the first floor of the James W. Wilson, Jr. Center, by phone at 504-861-WAVE or on-line at www.TulaneGreenWave.com.
