Yay, the T-Wolves will broadcast the remaining non-FSN games on TV this year. And what do ya know, they’ll actually be in HD (praise the Lord!) And they didn’t even drop the ball by missing out on the Wolves-Heat tilt next Tuesday. They sure cut it close enough, but hey, at least we can all watch LeBron and Co. destroy us in fabulous HD.
From the Wolves website:
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team’s regular season local over-the-air television schedule for the 2010-11 season, which includes a new partnership with WFTC My29. The Wolves’ television schedule will feature 12 games on WFTC My29, including seven Target Center dates and five telecasts from the road. All 12 games will be available in HD.
“We are excited to add My29 as our new over-the-air partner” said Timberwolves Sr. Vice President of Communications and Chief Marketing Officer Ted Johnson. “My29’s commitment to local programming is a great fit for our franchise as we introduce our exciting, young players to Minnesota.”
The new partnership with WFTC My29 is part of an integrated marketing relationship that will include ticket promotions, in-arena promotions, community involvement and other promotional elements.
“As part of our station’s ongoing commitment to quality local sports programming, we are pleased to bring our viewers the Timberwolves,” said Carol Rueppel, Vice President and General Manager of WFTC My29/KMSP Fox 9.
