Bring Me The News launches weekly Vikings livestream with Purple Insider's Matthew Coller

Coller and his Purple Insider team will talk everything Vikings, and take questions from viewers.

Just in time for Vikings training camp, Bring Me The News will unveil a new YouTube Live show featuring Matthew Coller and Sam Ekstrom, of Purple Insider.

Every Tuesday, Matthew Coller's Vikings Live with Bring Me The News will see Coller and Ekstrom take over the Bring Me The News YouTube channel and discuss all things Vikings.

We're talking meaningful, entertaining analysis; no hot takes just for the sake of it.

What's more, Coller and Ekstrom won't be talking at you the entire show; the live chat will be open, giving fans a chance to interact and engage with the pair.

Seriously. This is going to be a Vikings community that can get answers from two of the best in the business. So fire up YouTube and subscribe to the Bring Me The News channel so you're alerted every time the show goes live. 

We'll also be broadcasting live on our Facebook page and our Twitter page, and share the link on the Bring Me The News homepage.

Coller – a former SKOR North host who has developed a large following as a respected Vikings reporter – launched his Purple Insider subscription newsletter and podcast last year, with Ekstrom later joining the team and the likes of ESPN's Courtney Cronin a regular guest.

The first show will go live on Tuesday, July 27, and will run every Tuesday (typically at 2 p.m., though times may vary) through the end of the season – plus specials during free agency, the NFL Draft and any time major news breaks. 

Here's a taste of what you get from Coller, who interviewed the Vikings' wide receiver Adam Thielen in his latest Purple Insider podcast.

Matthew Coller is an experienced football columnist who covered the Vikings for 1500ESPN and Skor North before launching his own company, Purple Insider. Also a published author, Coller writes a weekly Vikings column for Bring Me The News.
