From the Trail Blazers:

TRAIL BLAZERS ANNOUNCE 2008-09 BROADCAST SCHEDULE

A Record 40 Games Will Air in High-Definition

 

 

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Trail Blazers announced today the team will televise 76 regular season games, equaling last year’s franchise record, in addition to one preseason game for the 2008-09 season. The remaining six regular season contests will air nationally on TNT.

 

Of the team’s 82 regular season games, 55 will air on Comcast SportsNet (CSN) and 21 can be seen on KGW Northwest NewsChannel 8. The Oct. 8 preseason game against Golden State will also air on KGW, giving fans a rare preview of the upcoming season. Additionally, five games are scheduled to be televised on ESPN, and will be simulcast locally on either CSN or KGW.

 

All 22 games on KGW will be broadcast throughout the state on the Trail Blazers Television Network.

 

The Trail Blazers continue to expand the number of games shown in High-Definition, with 40 dates now being broadcast in HDTV. That number is up from 34 last season and 10 in 2006-07, as Trail Blazers basketball in HD continues to expand. Viewers can experience HD during every locally broadcast home game, in addition to both road contests at the L.A. Clippers. A total of 32 HD games can be seen on CSN and eight on KGW.

 

Mike Barrett, nine-year veteran of the Trail Blazers broadcast team and author of the popular “Barrett’s Blog” on trailblazers.com, will mark his sixth season as television play-by-play announcer, while Mike Rice enters his fourth season as television commentator and 19th overall as a Trail Blazers broadcaster.

 

Sideline reporter Rebecca Haarlow, studio host Tony Luftman and studio analyst Michael Holton all return for a second season.

 

All Trail Blazers games, preseason and regular season, will be broadcast on KXTG 95.5 FM The Game and on the Trail Blazers’ statewide radio network, with Brian Wheeler calling the play-by-play for his 11th season and Antonio Harvey marking his fourth season as commentator. Sideline reporter Jay Allen will host the radio pre- and postgame shows.

The actual schedule is printed after the "Click Here" jump for those who want it.  Feel free to consider this an open discussion of anything discussed in the press release, including media talent (Happy they're back?) and the broadcast situation.
