SportSouth to Televise All 82 Charlotte Bobcats Games

Games to be Seen in More than 2.8 Million Households,  a 50% Increase from 2011-12 NBA Season

Charlotte Bobcats - Charlotte, North CarolinaATLANTA – SportSouth today announced the network will televise all 82 regular-season games of the Charlotte Bobcats 2012-13 NBA season, all in high definition. Bobcats games will be seen on SportSouth in more than 2.8 million households throughout North and South Carolina, a 50% increase in household distribution from 2011-12. SportSouth is in its fifth year as the Bobcats’ regional television partner.

Former Charlotte Hornets standout Dell Curry returns to the SportSouth broadcast team for his fourth year with play-by-play announcer Steve Martin, a broadcaster for more than 25 years, and courtside reporter Stephanie Ready, entering her 9th year with the Bobcats. In addition to game telecasts, Martin, Curry and Ready will co-host Bobcats LIVE expanded pre- and post-game coverage for all 82 game telecasts.

The Charlotte Bobcats will also be featured in the second episode of FOX Sports Carolina’s new original series DRIVEN, on September 22 at 10 p.m. ET (FSCR). DRIVEN: Tougher Faster Stronger, The 2012 Bobcats Draft, gives fans an all access look at the Bobcats 2012 draft, from draft lottery night in New York City, to Charlotte, where Michael Jordan, Rod Higgins and the Bobcats front office learn their draft fate with some of their most loyal fans. FOX Sports Carolinas had exclusive access inside the Bobcats war room, and captured every moment as the front office debated their choice right up until the selection of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Kentucky) with the #2 pick and Jeffery Taylor (Vanderbilt) with the #31 pick. In Newark, FOX Sports Carolinas cameras followed Kidd-Gilchrist after he was selected and captured his first conversation with Michael Jordan in a phone call. The day after the draft, the crew travelled Charlotte to see Kidd-Gilchrist and Taylor tour the facility and meet the media, putting the close on a hectic stretch for the team in which they hired a coach and selected their draft players all in a seven day period.
