FOX Sports Ohio Announces 2013-14 Cavs TV Coverage
Ohio’s premier regional sports network to cover 81 regular season games, beginning Opening Night, Wednesday, Oct. 30th when the Cavs host the Brooklyn Nets.
CLEVELAND, OHIO – FOX Sports Ohio is excited to announce it will carry the maximum number (81) of Cleveland Cavaliers games eligible for local broadcast during the 2013-14 regular season. Of the Cavs complete 82-game schedule, FOX Sports Ohio will not be able to televise the Cavaliers Jan. 30 game at New York due to national television exclusivity rights.
The network’s coverage of the Cavs’ regular season begins Opening Night, Wednesday, Oct. 30th at 7pm when the Cavs host the Brooklyn Nets at Quicken Loans Arena. FOX Sports Ohio will also air a special one-hour edition of Cavaliers Live Pregame Show that evening, starting at 6pm.
Cavaliers Live (#CavsLive) will return with commentary, features, and in-depth pre-game coverage of the Cavs 30 minutes prior to every game telecast. The Halftime Report, presented by KIA Motors, will break down the first half of the game and offer insights in preparation for the second half. Immediately following the final buzzer of each game, the post-game edition of Cavaliers Live, presented by Conrad’s Tire Express and Total Car Care, will feature highlights, player interviews and analysis.
The network is also pleased to announce the return of its Cavs broadcast team. Cavaliers legend Austin Carr will continue to spice up the color analysis for the entire FOX Sports Ohio schedule along-side veteran play-by-play man Fred McLeod and sideline reporter Allie Clifton. Jeff Phelps and Campy Russell are also back to host Cavaliers Live shows.
Phelps will continue to host Cavaliers in the Paint, a show that provides the most up-to-date news and highlights surrounding the Cavs, premiering at 6pm on Tuesday, November 5th.
