Allie LaForce, 2011 Ohio University and WOUB alumna, will be a part of a new CBS Sports Network show “That Other Pregame Show,” which will begin airing September 8. 

According to a press release, “That Other Pregame Show” will break from the familiar pregame show format presenting a unique fan-focused take on all the week’s NFL and college action, headlines and hot-button issues. Adam Schein will host the show along with NFL veteran Bart Scott, Oakland Raiders Executive Amy Trask, CBS Sports Radio’s Brandon Tierney and CBSSports.com fantasy analyst Nathan Zegura. Regular contributors will include Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Shannon Sharpe and Bill Cowher, as well as host James Brown and Insider Jason La Canfora. CBS Sports’ NFL on CBS announcers will appear regularly from their game sites, including Phil Simms, Dan Fouts, Dan Dierdorf, Rich Gannon, Solomon Wilcots, Steve Tasker and Steve Beuerlein.

LaForce will report for the show along with continuing to co-host the CBS sports show “Lead Off” with former ESPN college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb. She joined the late night sports show in October 2012, which airs at midnight.

LaForce was host for the 2010 season of WOUB’s “Bobcat Blitz,” which featured Ohio University football. The next season the show was transformed into a nine-month program called “The Bobcat Sports Showcase,” that focused on all Ohio University varsity sports. While at Ohio University she was a member of the OU Women’s basketball team and served as a Nike field reporter.
