KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — “Vol Calls,” the official statewide call-in radio show for University of Tennessee athletics airs Mondays on location from Calhoun’s On the River in downtown Knoxville.

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 insight into University of Tennessee sports. Weather permitting, the show will originate outside each week during the fall on Calhoun’s large patio deck overlooking the Tennessee River and Neyland Stadium.

Calhoun’s On the River returns as the home of “Vol Calls” for the eighth straight season.
