CLARENCE, NY ( Bob Koshinski, Vice President and General Manager of WBBZ-TV, Your Hometown Station, is proud to announce that “The Fred Jackson Show” will return to the local program roster beginning Monday September 9th at 7:30p.m.  Fred, star running back for the Buffalo Bills, has been a member of the team since 2007. The program will be re-broadcast Monday evening at 11:00p.m., and Tuesday morning at 9a.m.  “The Fred Jackson Show” is sponsored by D’Youville College and Gates Circle Wine & Liquor.

On returning for a second year with his show, Fred Jackson commented, “I’m excited to return to the football field and to television for another great season. This year we will have even more fun with the guest players, and have some special surprises.   I appreciate the support of all our fans.”

Fred Jackson became the first player in NFL history to rush for more than 1,000 yards and total more than 1,000 kickoff return yards in the same season in 2009.  Fred was chosen as the 2010 winner of the Buffalo Bills/NFL Walter Payton “Man of the Year” award, as voted on by selected members of the WNY community.  The award was given to Fred for a combination of his excellent play on-the-field, and his contributions to the community.

WBBZ-TV Vice President and General Manager Bob Koshinski will co-host with Fred, welcoming guest players with a live studio audience of football fans and area high school teams to the Eastern Hills Mall studio.   Koshinski commented, “I am very excited that Fred is back with his show on WBBZ-TV.  Fred is a true talent on the field, and on-the-air.  Fred’s show not only offers viewers a unique perspective on the game, but also the opportunity to get to know the players up close and personal.  We will also introduce our “Hotshot Football Challenge” for members of our studio audience to challenge Fred and our guest player of the week.”

Jackson is a native of Fort Worth, Texas and a graduate of Coe College.  He is married with three children, and one on the way!
