‘Food Week’ Continues On MSG Networks This Week

Food Week MSGMove over, Bobby Flay! MSG Networks has a full week of food-themed programming, highlighting Knicks, Rangers, Islanders and Devils players and execs and MSG Networks on-air personalities in fun segments.

From their announcement:

Viewers will get to watch Knicks forward Bobby Portis go behind the counter to create a sandwich at the iconic Katz’s Delicatessen, MSG Networks host Bill Pidto scoop ice cream and make cones at the popular Emack and Bolio’s ice cream shop and former Knick John Wallace showcase his passion for food in a fun cooking segment with his mother. Rangers defensemen Jacob Trouba and Brady Skeji, Islanders play-by-play announcer Brendan Burke and host Shannon Hogan, Devils center Blake Coleman and more will be featured as well in various food challenges and taste tests throughout the week.

MSG Networks will also air exclusive content filmed at “The Pizza Joint,” a Knicks-themed pizza parlor pop-up experience that Chase has built in partnership with Buzzfeed. “The Pizza Joint,” located at Speedy Romeo’s pizzeria on the Lower East Side,” will feature special perks for Chase cardholders. The overall content during “Food Week” will be integrated into pre-game show segments, in-game spots and in the “MSG 150 Final,” which will air after each Knicks post-game show. The original content, as well as episodes from several of Complex Network’s Hot Ones and The Burger Show series, will also air in the network’s “MSG Shorts” programming block throughout the week.

The complete, all-week takeover kicked off across MSG Networks’ linear, digital and social channels on Monday.
