Here's the essential part of the announcement:
The Cleveland Cavaliers and FSN Ohio have reached a new, long-term television rights agreement that greatly expands the 17-year relationship between the team and the network, it was announced today by Steve Liverani, Vice President and General Manager, FSN Ohio, and Len Komoroski, President, Cleveland Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena.
Under terms of the agreement, FSN Ohio has acquired the rights to televise 70 Cavaliers games per season, beginning with the 2006-07 campaign, an increase of 30 games per season over the current agreement. The new agreement also calls for five of those 70 games to be simulcast on WUAB TV43. Financial terms were not disclosed.
[R}eturning next season is CAVALIERS COUNTDOWN, providing fans with commentary, features and in-depth pregame coverage of the Cleveland Cavaliers, 30 minutes prior to every game telecast. Wrapping up the action is CAVALIERS IN THE POST, a postgame show featuring highlights, interviews and analysis immediately following each telecast. And rounding out FSN Ohio’s Cavaliers coverage is CAVALIERS FAST BREAK, a Cavaliers-produced show featuring all the behind-the-scenes information a true fan needs.
FSN did not release the names on its announcing team, or exactly which games it will carry. That will come later, possibly next week.
