“Vol Calls” Debuts From Calhoun’s On The River

Football August 22, 2022

“Vol Calls,” the official statewide radio show of the Tennessee Volunteers, kicks off its 2022-23 season on Wednesday, Aug. 24, on location from the legendary Calhoun’s On the River in downtown Knoxville.

The one-hour show airs at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT across the state of Tennessee and is also streamed on UTsports.com/watch and via the Tennessee Athletics app. Tennessee Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White and another special guest are scheduled to appear on Wednesday’s season debut, which will also include a special recorded interview with head football coach Josh Heupel.

ADVERTISINGHeupel makes his on-site debut on a special Monday, Aug. 29, show next week prior to UT’s season-opener versus Ball State on Thursday, Sept. 1 in Neyland Stadium.

Bob Kesling, the voice of the Tennessee Volunteers and UT’s director of broadcasting, serves as the show’s host and is joined by Vol Network veteran Brent Hubbs to answer questions and provide the latest news and information on Tennessee Athletics.

The show will be held outside each week during the fall on the restaurant’s massive, new, covered outdoor deck. Overlooking the Tennessee River, “The Deck” at Calhoun’s provides a new outdoor eating and show experience with big-screen televisions, new sound system, ceiling fans and a roof that fully protects fans from the elements.

Calhoun’s On the River returns as the home of “Vol Calls” for the 11th straight season. Famous for its award-winning ribs, BBQ and other delicious Southern dishes, Calhoun’s is one of Tennessee’s most popular restaurant destinations. The restaurant will give away special prizes each week during football season through its Instagram channel – calhounstn – including “Best Seats in the House” for the show, game tickets, hospitality passes and a collection of special signature sauces. 

“Vol Calls” is the exclusive statewide radio show for Tennessee Athletics featuring the head coaches of the Big Orange. The show can be heard on 50-plus radio stations across the state of Tennessee on the Vol Radio Network and all over the world through UTsports.com, the Tennessee Athletics App and SiriusXM.
