Sports-talk radio personality Paul Finebaum has agreed to a major book deal with publisher HarperCollins to co-write a memoir about his popular call-in show, “The Paul Finebaum Radio Network,” and its impact on SEC football.
“Primarily, it’s about the culture of the show and how the culture of the show interacts with the SEC,” Finebaum told AL.com. “But it does quickly go through my career and how we got to this point.
“There will be commentary on why the SEC is better than everyone else,” Finebaum added. “It will certainly talk about the dominance of not only Alabama, but the conference. The (radio) show will be woven in and out of the book, featuring little vignettes on the callers.”
“No one speaks to SEC Nation — and Alabama fans in particular — with more passion, knowledge and humor than Paul Finebaum,” HarperCollins Senior Vice President and Executive Editor David Hirshey said in an email. “We expect this book to occupy the same spot on the best-seller list that Alabama occupies in the BCS rankings — number one.”
The book is scheduled for an August 2014 release.
