WASHINGTON, June 18, 2014 Fox Sports 1 has granted permission for the Pentagon Channel to air the network’s hour-long show on the Army’s 2014 Best Ranger competition.
The program will air on the Pentagon Channel and will simultaneously stream on the channel’s website June 20. Airtimes, all Eastern Daylight Time, are 1, 5 and 9 a.m. and 1, 5 and 9 p.m.
Fox Sports 1 cameras deliver an all-access program chronicling a three-day period and stretching into nearly 60 hours of competition.
“This special shows exactly why the U.S. Army Rangers lead the way. It’s a true testament to how tough and well trained they are,” said Michael Bloom, vice president of Fox Sports 1 Originals. “Fifty teams, three days, one winner. I’ve never seen anything like it."
