FOX Sports North--the area's leading supplier of regional sports programming--and the Minnesota Wild's exclusive cable television partner since its inaugural season. The regional sports network enters its 17th consecutive year as the team's local television home and will telecast the majority of regular season Wild games during the 2016-2017 campaign. All games televised on FOX Sports North will also be streamed live on FOX Sports GO, available to customers of participating pay-TV providers.
The FOX Sports North telecasts feature play-by-play by Anthony LaPanta (@AnthonyLapanta) with color analyst Mike Greenlay (@pulledgoalie). In addition to live game coverage, FOX Sports North airs a half-hour show titled "Wild Live" before and after the games featuring hosts Tom Hanneman and Audra Martin with analysis from Wes Walz, Tom Chorske, Ben Clymer and Kevin Gorg.
FOX Sports North reaches more than 2.5 million homes throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North and South Dakota and telecasts nearly 2,600 hours of locally produced, Emmy award winning programming per year. The regional sports network is also the exclusive local television partner of the Minnesota Twins, Timberwolves and partner to a number of local collegiate hockey associations. In the case of a conflict, the Wild may have their game telecast moved to FOX Sports PLUS, an auxiliary channel made available by most cable and satellite providers.
