/ Carolina Hurricanes
RALEIGH, NC – Peter Karmanos, Jr., Owner and Chief Executive Officer of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has reached a new, multi-year agreement with its local television rights holder, FOX Sports Carolinas. Beginning with the 2013-14 season, FOX Sports Carolinas will televise all Hurricanes regular-season and playoff games not carried by NHL national rights holders.
“We are very pleased to continue to partner with FOX Sports Carolinas as the Hurricanes’ television rights holder,” said Karmanos. “This new deal is an important piece for the growth of our business, and it’s a major win for fans who will get to see every game on local television.”
Under the deal, FOX Sports Carolinas will continue to produce pre- and post-game shows surrounding every Hurricanes game, and will continue broadcasting all games in high definition. The current deal, which calls for 65 of the team’s regular-season games to be televised, will remain in effect for 2012-13.
