JEREMY ROENICK WEARS A MICROPHONE FOR THURSDAY'S
BLACKHAWKS/COYOTES TELECAST ON FSN ARIZONA
GAME IS ALSO PART OF "HD THURSDAY NIGHTS WITH THE COYOTES" PACKAGE
Hockey fans can get up close and personal with one of the NHL's most talkative players this Thursday night when Jeremy Roenick wears a microphone for FSN Arizona during its telecast of the Chicago Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes game from Jobing.com Arena in Glendale.
Roenick has agreed to wear a microphone for this game that can be seen Thursday, Nov. 16, only on FSN Arizona and throughout the telecast, viewers will be able to hear from Roenick and gain insight into what he has to say to his teammates, the opposition, his coaches and referees. The network's coverage gets started live at 6:30 p.m. with Qwest Coyotes Live, hosted by Todd Walsh.
This marks the third time this season that a member of the Coyotes has agreed to wear a microphone for FSN Arizona, as Wayne Gretzky did so in the Los Angeles Kings telecast on Oct. 19, and Shane Doan wore one on opening night for the network's Coyotes All Access Pass show.
The telecast will also mark another installment of "HD Thursday Nights With the Coyotes." This season, 10 Coyotes games are available in High Definition on Thursday nights across the state of Arizona. The HD telecast can be seen on Cox Communications by its digital cable subscribers who have an HDTV set and HD Digital Converter on channel 722. DIRECTV offers all FSN Arizona HD games in the Phoenix DMA on channel 96. DIRECTV also offers a portion of FSN HD games inside and outside of Phoenix on channel 95.
