The Philadelphia Flyers, in conjunction with broadcast partners CSN Philadelphia and Beasley Broadcasting Group, today announced their local broadcast schedule for the 2017-18 season.
The Flyers will have 72 of their games televised locally in the Philadelphia market this season. Of those games, 62 will air on CSN Philadelphia, with the remaining 10 airing on The Comcast Network. CSN Philadelphia and The Comcast Network will re-brand to NBC Sports Philadelphia and NBC Sports Philadelphia+, respectively, on October 2.
Ten Flyers games will be exclusively televised to a national audience this season. The team will appear six times on the NBC Sports Network, including the season opener at San Jose on October 4. The Flyers will be seen four times on NBC - once in January and three times in the final three weeks of the season.
In addition, the Flyers' three preseason games at the Wells Fargo Center will be televised locally - Sept. 26 vs. the New York Rangers and Oct. 1 vs. the New York Islanders will be on TCN, while Sept. 28 vs. Boston will be seen on CSN.
CSN's Emmy-Award winning broadcast team of play-by-play voice Jim Jackson, color commentators Keith Jones and Bill Clement, and rinkside analyst Chris Therien all return this season, along with veteran producer Bryan Cooper and director Mike Mulligan.
On the radio side, the Flyers enter their sixth season with Beasley Broadcasting Group bringing all preseason, regular season and playoff games to the airwaves, and veteran broadcasters Tim Saunders and Steve Coates returning to handle all Flyers radio broadcasts. 97.5 The Fanatic will again serve as the Flyers' radio flagship, and will carry 56 regular season games. On 26 regular-season occasions where the Flyers play on the same night as the Philadelphia 76ers, Flyers games will be heard on 93.3 WMMR. The split-squad game in Allentown vs. the New York Islanders on September 20 will be carried on 97.5 The Fanatic; broadcast plans for the other half of the evening from Brooklyn are still to be determined.
