Goodyear And Waze Team Up To Bring College Football Analyst Kirk Herbstreit And The Iconic Goodyear Blimp To Your Drives This College Football Season
New integration brings the stadium experience to your vehicles all season long

AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy award-winning college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit is a new navigation voice option for Waze, thanks to a collaboration with Goodyear (NASDAQ: GT).

Available now through Jan. 31, 2022, the Goodyear and Waze integration takes the college football experience beyond the stadium to the roads as fans drive to games, tailgates and viewing parties throughout the country.

"It's great to work with brands that are as passionate about college football as I am," said Herbstreit. "College football fans are showing up to support their teams near and far this year, and now Goodyear and Waze are making it even easier for fans to follow their teams on the road to greatness this season."

The Goodyear Blimp has become synonymous with college football's most marquee matchups and superior performances on the field. So, in addition to the new voice option, Waze users in the U.S. can select the Goodyear Blimp icon to guide them to their destinations.
