New monthly UWTV show, ‘Dawg Dish’ explores UW athletics

What makes UW basketball fans so devoted they’ll camp on concrete for a chance to get on national television? What does the UW’s Lamborghini Lab have to do with Husky baseball? And how does the Husky gridiron gang stay fit in the off-season?

UWTV and UW Athletics will deliver a fresh behind-the-scenes look at Husky athletes and sports programs in a new monthly television show, Dawg Dish on UWTV, channel 27 in the Puget Sound, and www.uwtv.org.

The first episode, hosted by recent Husky basketball standout Quincy Pondexter, premieres at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 7.

Ebbie Thomas, the show’s producer and social media manager with UW Athletics, says Dawg Dish is “an entertaining way to learn more about what makes our student-athletes tick, who our coaches are and everything that encompasses the world of collegiate athletics.”

Thomas adds that plans for upcoming shows include the chance for viewers to have their questions answered by their favorite Husky student-athletes during the telecast. Look for a new Dawg Dish on the first Friday of every month on UWTV.
