At the opening breakfast of the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour, College Sports Television announced a large slate of quirky programming aimed at broadening the network’s appeal beyond hard-core fans of traditional sports.

The new programming includes “National Collegiate a Cappella Championship,” “Defeat the Beat: National Collegiate Band Championship,” “National Collegiate Dodgeball Championship” and “National Collegiate Debate Championship,” “National Collegiate Karaoke Championship,” “National Collegiate Cycling Championship” and “UPA Ultimate Flying Disc Championship.”

The slate is dubbed the “Festival of Championships.”

“Our ‘Festival of Championships’ will showcase college sports which have passionate fans and communities but haven’t received the same exposure as traditional college sports,” said Brian Bedol, president and CEO, CSTV.
