Hawkeye Nation will begin broadcasting its weekly sports radio program from Jethro’s BBQ n’ Bacon Bacon in West Des Moines on Sept. 2.

Jethro’s owner Bruce Gerleman recently completed a 1,200-square-foot addition to the restaurant, which is where the sports show will be broadcast. The addition seats about 80 and is used as a party room, Gerleman said.

Along with Hawkeye Nation broadcasts, Bacon Bacon will serve as the game-watching spot for the Polk County I-Club, the local fan base for the University of Iowa Hawkeyes.

Jethro’s BBQ n’ Bacon Bacon is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
