ESPN’s First Take will broadcast live from the FPG Student Union at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Tuesday, a day ahead of the Carolina at Duke men’s basketball game.

Hosts Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith and Cari Champion will be there, along with Rameses, the Carolina cheerleaders, the pep band and special guests.

Students are invited to wear their Carolina blue and be a part of the show’s audience. Seating will be limited to about 450 seats and will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students may begin lining up at 7:30 a.m. in the West Lounge of the Carolina Union. Doors to the Great Hall, where the show will broadcast, will open at 8:30 a.m. Students must show their UNC One Card to get into the Great Hall and then will be given a wristband to get into the event.

Students will not be allowed to bring signs, backpacks or liquids into the Great Hall.

The show broadcasts from 10 a.m. to noon. Students will not be required to stay for the entire broadcast. They will be allowed to leave before the show begins or during commercial breaks. As people leave, others waiting in line will be allowed to come into the room.
