All 82 Blazers Games to air in HD

Every Blazers game will air in High Definition this season.  Booya. And I just spent 25,000 dollars removing the creases around my eyes from last year. Throw the telescope back in the garage!

And in case you forgot, that won't be the only change this year.

Welcome to 2007, Blazers Broadcasting. Glad to have you.

For the first time, every game expected to air in high definition

PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Trail Blazers revealed plans to broadcast all 2009-10 games in high definition, highlighting the 75-game local broadcast schedule announced by the team today.

The Trail Blazers will air 60 games on Comcast SportsNet Northwest (CSNNW) and 15 on KGW Northwest NewsChannel 8. All KGW games will also be broadcast throughout the state on the Trail Blazers Television Network.

The seven games not included in the local schedule will air exclusively with NBA broadcast partners TNT and ABC, ensuring that all 82 games are slated to be televised.

The Trail Blazers have increased the number of high definition broadcasts each season, up from 40 last season, 34 in 2007-08 and 10 in 2006-07.

Mike Barrett, a 10-year veteran of the Trail Blazers broadcast team, enters his seventh season handling television play-by-play duties. For the fifth straight season, he will be joined on the broadcast by color analyst Mike Rice, who begins his 20th overall season behind the microphone for the Trail Blazers. Sideline reporter Rebecca Haarlow returns for a third season.

Studio analyst Michael Holton also returns for a third season, providing pregame, halftime and postgame insight. He will be joined in-studio by Bob Akamian and a rotating cast of Trail Blazers personalities.

All Trail Blazers preseason and regular season games will be broadcast on KXTG 95.5 FM "The Game" and to 22 other affiliates on the Trail Blazers radio network. Play-by-play voice Brian Wheeler (12th season), analyst Antonio Harvey (fifth season) both return, as does sideline reporter Jay Allen, who will host the pre-game show and provide post-game interviews from the locker room.
