Tribune TV Stations to Carry Six NFL Games Locally in 2010

Tribune Broadcasting today announced that it has reached an agreement with the National Football League for the over-the-air local broadcast rights to six late-season NFL Network games, beginning with the Chicago Bears vs. Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Nov. 18.  The agreement enables Tribune television stations in eight NFL markets to carry the NFL Network telecast of the local team’s Thursday Night Football game.

“In keeping with our commitment to offer the best programming, Tribune Broadcasting is extremely happy to be partnering with NFL Network to make these games available locally over-the-air to football fans and advertisers in the markets we serve,” said Jerry Kersting, President of Tribune Broadcasting.  ”There are some great match-ups here, with the potential to really affect who makes the playoffs—these games will draw a lot of interest.”

The eight Tribune stations airing individual games are:  New York (WPIX-TV), Chicago (WGN-TV), Philadelphia (WPHL-TV), Houston (KIAH-TV), Miami (WSFL-TV), Dallas (KDAF-TV), San Diego (KSWB-TV) and Indianapolis (WXIN-TV).

By NFL policy, ESPN and NFL Network games are carried on free, over-the-air television in the city of the visiting team and in the city where the game is played if it is sold out 72 hours in advance of kickoff.

The full schedule of games is as follows:
