TENTATIVE GAME OF THE WEEK FOOTBALL TELECAST SCHEDULE RELEASED
Normally, we don't release a schedule this early in the summer, as many games we want to do are still pending approval by the host schools, but fan demand to know what we're thinking for Friday (and some Thursdays) this fall has been so high that we're going ahead with releasing a very TENTATIVE line-up for FNN's Game of the Week plans.
But know this - it's likely to change for many different reasons. Some of these changes are out of our control and some will be because as the season progresses, games we believe might be meaningful right now will not live up to that and we will make necessary changes in order to bring you the games that will have greater region standings or playoff implications.
"That's one of the reasons we don't like to put out a schedule," says FNN's Jim Jacobs.
"You put a game on the schedule that you wind up having to change because there's just a bigger game that FNN needs to do for our fans and this results in some hurt feelings sometimes. We never want to do that...and while the coaches and school administrators usually understand our reasoning, sometimes the fans don't."
"In the nine seasons we've done high school football, I've never seen folks as anxious to know what games we're covering as they have been right now."
One thing FNN is doing this season that we toyed around with some last year was giving the fans the opportunity to actually pick the game we do on a particular week. The FNN FAN VOTE returns in 2019 for games on Week 2 (September 6th) and Week 7 (October 11th). Fans will have the opportunity to vote on the FNN Facebook page between three games with the most votes determining where we'll go that Friday.
"We love giving our viewers the opportunity to determine some of the games we do during a season," said Jacobs. "it's a lot of fun to watch the voting go back and forth between the various fan bases for the schools."

FRIDAY NIGHT FINALS SET TO BEGIN ON FNN ON AUGUST 23RD AS NETWORK DEBUTS IT'S NEW SCOREBOARD SHOW WITH AN OLD TWIST
Remember those Friday nights riding home from your team's game-turning up the radio to listen in for all the area scores and fans calling in talking about their team and their rivals. Somehow, we've lost that over recent years and we think it's about time to make after the games on Friday nights FUN again.
So, starting August 23rd, FNN is introducing a brand new show that will air from our studios on Quintard in Anniston. We're calling it FRIDAY NIGHT FINALS - all the night's scores plus guest appearances from players, cheerleaders, coaches and YES - fan call-ins! It's high time the tradition of Friday Night Smack-Talkin' returns to our area and we're going to make it happen!
"I had the privilege to do an extremely popular high school scoreboard show on local radio for almost twenty years," says FNN's Jim Jacobs.
"There was nothing like talking with the fans - listening to them going after each other's team and talking about how they were going to win the big game. In recent years, we've lost that. Now all you see are highlight clips and tons of ads and sponsorships. Nobody's letting the fans be involved and we think that needs to change."
"FNN already has a huge audience watching our GAME OF THE WEEK, so why not roll them over into FRIDAY NIGHT FINALS and build on it up until midnight? I can't begin to tell you how many people have asked me to do this. While I won't be able to host it because of producing our GAME OF THE WEEK, you'll definitely get the vibe of that old radio scoreboard with tons of viewer call-ins along with all the final scores, plus we'll have guests and people that know the game talking about results and their implications weekly on each region and the season. We're putting a lot into this and hope everyone likes it."
You'll be able to watch the show LIVE on your smartphone, computer, tablet, gaming system or TV with Roku or Amazon Firestick.
FRIDAY NIGHT FINALS will be on our FNN 24/7 Channel here at fnnnetwork.com and on all our social media platforms including Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter/Periscope starting immediately after the FNN GAME OF THE WEEK, then continuing until midnight.
Help us spread the word - and get ready to dial in and be a part of it all starting Friday night, August 23rd!
