UWTV set to unveil series on history of Husky Stadium

UWTV has announced that it will soon debut a 10-part series celebrating the history of Husky Stadium, which will undergo a $250 million renovation starting in November.

The series, called “Greatest Moments at Husky Stadium,” premieres on Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. and will air twice every Friday night at 6:30 p.m. and again at 9 p.m., with an encore airing on Monday at 7 p.m. Viewers can also watch episodes online and find out more about the series at uwtv.org/greatestmoments.

A press release describes the show as: “a tribute to the magical place where the Husky football team takes to the field, season after season, creating lasting memories for the many fans and players in a stadium like no other in the country.”

The press release further states that:

“. … each half hour, weekly episode will show more than a series of game highlights. Viewers will go behind the scenes – into the locker room, The Tunnel and onto the field with the players, coaches, and fans, recalling the moments that made the stadium an integral part of the Seattle community.

With a distinguished history and upcoming renovation at Husky Stadium, the series will countdown the best moments of the first 91 years on Montlake. These defining moments in UW football history are illuminated by the players who lived those moments. UW football legends appearing in the program include: Don James, Steve Sarkisian, Jim Lambright, Warren Moon, Bob Rondeau, Sonny Sixkiller and many other significant players and long-time media professionals.

The series makes extensive and compelling use of rarely seen archived film, along with still photos, personal memories from players and fans, and music from the iconic Husky Marching Band.”
