SEC Network Continues to Innovate with Social and Digital Engagement

SEC Network launched #HomeSchoolSpirit in May, a new initiative as part of its "We Love It Here" brand campaign. SEC fans are encouraged to post photos and videos on social media with the hashtag #HomeSchoolSpirit to display how they keep their SEC fandom going while staying at home.

SEC Network is also producing a robust lineup of social and digital programming for SEC fans looking for current conversation surrounding the world of sports, including No Offseason with Laura Rutledge, SEC For Now and SEC Update. Over the past several weeks, new segments stepped into the fold, such as Marty & McGee's Show & Tell, Remember When... and What Day Is It? with Alyssa Lang. Daily content is premiering on SEC Network's Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as SECNetwork.com.

Additional SEC Network programming updates will be forthcoming. Please continue to check @ESPNPR and ESPN Press Room for more information.
