Sports isn’t fully back, but stations are already planning coverage for the fall.
KTNV, the ABC station in Las Vegas, has announced it will partner with the Las Vegas Raiders to air home games and special coverage through the football season.
“The excitement is overflowing in Las Vegas as we eagerly await the team’s first home game in Las Vegas. 13 Action News is planning extensive coverage of the Raiders’ Las Vegas debut season and the team’s impact on the Southern Nevada community,” said Chris Way, KTNV’s vice president and general manager. “We look forward to continuing KTNV’s partnership with the Las Vegas Raiders well into the future and connecting fans with this engaging programming.”
The station also plans to air an exclusive 30-minute weekly Raiders-themed program on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. this fall. It will be a roundtable show featuring beat writers, media personalities and celebrities.
KTNV also will air the Las Vegas Raiders’ annual NFL Draft special, the first of which aired this past April. The partnership is part of a multiyear deal between the Scripps station and the Raiders.
