Wild announces full TV schedule; 84 games televised

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news Updated: August 27, 2010 - 11:36 AM

(updated)

For the first time in history, all 82 Wild games will be televised. Plus, as an added bonus, two exhibition games will be televised for a grand total of 84. Fox Sports North will televise a total of 50 games and KSTC-TV, Channel 45 will broadcast 24 contests. The Wild will also make 10 national television appearances this season.

I'm told the majority will be in HD, although those details are still being worked out. Schedule is below

I'll be on 1500 ESPN tonight at 7 p.m. for the season debut of "Russo Radio." The show will take place from the 1500 ESPN porch at the State Fair, so stop on by if you're taking in the Fair.

By the way, did you see Carlos Gonzalez's really neat GigaPan from the State Fair yesterday? Here's the link

In fact, make sure you check out the Star Tribune booth at the Fair the next few weeks. Lots of reporters will be hanging around there if you want to meet some of the people who report for our paper. I can't remember all the people, but I know Sid the Kid Hartman, Lavelle E. Neal The Third, Shock Jock Jim Souhan and Joe "Needs a Nickname" Christensen from Sports will be around there the next few weeks.
