Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves have renewed an agreement to broadcast as many as 25 games of the 2012-13 NBA campaign. The over-the-air broadcaster is WFTC My 29.
Last season, the Wolves' sole TV broadcaster was FSNorth. WFTC did broadcast 12 games during the 2010-11 season, but didn't do any last year. I know a number of TWolves fans were VERY upset that there were a number of games that they couldn't see last season. I watch all the games on the internet, so it didn't effect me too much.
WFTC is a part of the FOX Television Stations group. I don't know if the Wolves will have the same broadcasters for all the games. Last season it was Tom Hanneman & Jim Petersen. Petersen will likely be back, though Hanneman was promoted a few short weeks ago to Fox Sports in-studio host. So we could be hearing a new voice or two on the sideline next season. FSNorth will still televise up to 50 TWolves games next season.
"We are excited to be returning to My 29 for our over-the-air partner. My 29 has proved to have a strong commitment to local programming, and continues to be a great fit for our franchise," Timberwolves president Chris Wright said in a press release.
