The University of Alabama will use Tide TV to present coverage of Alabama’s 2012 National Signing Day. Anchoring the live coverage will be Chris Stewart and Christopher England. Unfortunately, there is no mention of Fax Girl in this year’s coverage package. There will be a stream of the updating commitment board, and that means there might still be a slim element of hope. That stream goes live at 7 a.m. and is separate from the 9 a.m.-11 a.m. show.

Here is the official release via UA Media Relations:

TideTV will Air National Signing Day Show from 9-11 a.m. Wednesday

Alabama head coach Nick Saban will meet the media at 4 p.m. in the Naylor Stone Media Room
The University of Alabama will produce a two-hour National Signing Day Show on TideTV that can be viewed from 9-11 a.m. on RollTide.com and beginning at 11 a.m. on WVUA. Alabama head coach Nick Saban will then wrap up the day’s proceedings with a press conference at 4 p.m. in the Naylor Stone Media Room.

The TideTV production will be hosted by Chris Stewart and will include biographical information on the signee as well as video highlights. Joining Stewart will be TideTV’s Christopher England, who will introduce Alabama’s latest signee and have phone interviews with a select group of those signees.

There will also be a separate stream of the “Big Board” that will give fans immediate knowledge of the Crimson Tide’s latest letters of intent. The “Big Board” stream will go live at 7 a.m. on TideTV.

ESPN will also be on site in Tuscaloosa and reporting throughout the day with live signing day coverage.

Biographical information and links to signee highlights will be immediately available at RollTide.com. The latest NLIs will also be tweeted out @AlabamaFTBL and posted to Facebook at Alabama-Football as soon as they are available.
