Today, Fox Soccer Channel unveiled an updated set for Soccer Talk Live, the channel’s new soccer talk show that replaced Fox Football Fone-In. Soccer Talk Live, which is co-hosted by MLS legend Kyle Martino and attractive woman Temryss Lane, has failed to attract a large viewership thus far. However, the show’s producers are banking on the enhanced production values translating into an audience larger than Martino and Lane’s extended families.
Recently hired Set Manager Joel Hodgman was the man responsible for the newly updated set. “Joel can work magic with $40 - his résumé says he watches a lot of Design on a Dime and it really shows,” Amy Driscoll, one of the show’s producers, told us, “I find it hard to believe he put most of the set together with things just laying around the office. And to think he got so much of that blood out of that carpet. Magic.”
Although Soccer Talk Live does not cover MLS exclusively, the show increases the amount of coverage MLS receives on FSC to just under that of replays of English second division matches and Australian reality shows.
Soccer Talk Live airs live on Mondays at 7:00pm ET and is replayed, like everything else on FSC, about thirty-five times until the next live airing.
