Appointment Viewing: Alyssa Lang’s New ‘Out Of Pocket’ Show Fits Into A Busy Schedule

SEC Network host and reporter also guides Thinking Out Loud premiere tonight, capping off myriad week of duties on multiple ESPN platforms

It’s no secret it’s a busy time of year with football nearly in full swing.

For host and reporter Alyssa Lang, her busy fall schedule just stepped it up a notch.

Between hosting SEC Now and Thinking Out Loud on SEC Network, as well as her work as a college football sideline reporter, Lang has added two new shows to her plate this fall: Out of Pocket with Alyssa Lang on SEC Network every Saturday, and Primetime on ESPN Radio with co-host Field Yates every Sunday.

Front Row takes a look at Lang’s workweek with her new show schedule leading into Thinking Out Loud’s season premiere (tonight, 7 ET, SEC Network), featuring a brand new cast.
