BYU Football Media Day is Friday — a cool drink of water in the long desert offseason for fans. Here’s how you can enjoy all the programming.

NCAA Football: Brigham Young at Hawaii Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

The long BYU Football offseason continues but the desert oasis that is Media Day (the eighth annual) is coming at you Friday, June 22. A variety of coverage starting in the morning and continuing through evening will be broadcast on BYUtv, BYU Radio, and ESPN3... Along with other local coverage. Here’s what there is to look forward to, and how to tune in (all times are MDT):

  • 9 - 10:00 a.m.State of the Program on BYUtv with BYU Athletic Director Tom Holmoe, Head Coach Kalani Sitake, and other assistant football coaches discussing the BYU Football program and the upcoming season. Trevor Matich will also be live on set to help preview and analyze the upcoming year for the Cougars. (Simulcast on ESPN3, WatchESPN, BYUtv.org, and BYU Radio)
  • 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. BYU Sports Nation on BYUtv (Special 2-hour edition) featuring media interviews with players and coaches (Simulcast on ESPN3, WatchESPN, and BYU Radio)
  • 2 - 3:00 p.m. Cougars in the NFL on BYUtv. This one hour program will look at recent BYU NFL draftees like Fred Warner, Jamaal Williams, and Bronson Kaufusi. You can also look for interviews with Taysom Hill and Ziggy Ansah during this hour, among others. (Simulcast on BYUtv.org and BYU Radio)

Rebroadcasts will be happening throughout the day. View the whole schedule including times for rebroadcasts here.

Another very important (okay, well, fun, if not important) thing that will be happening throughout the entire day (starting at 8 a.m. and going until about 4 p.m.) are the famous and beloved player and coach web chats with Lauren McClain. These will all be broadcast live on YouTube. These are more loose and light-hearted interviews that help fans get to know or catch up with former and current players, as well as coaches.
