CINCINNATI – FC Cincinnati announced on Wednesday its matches will be televised on WKRC Cincinnati, WSTR and the CW for a second year, with every FCC road game of the 2017 USL season being added to the new season’s television package. iHeartRadio will also return as FCC’s Official Radio Broadcast Partner in 2017 with all home games to be simulcast on ESPN 1530.
“FC Cincinnati is thrilled to be working with the Sinclair Broadcast Group for a second season,” said President and General Manager, Jeff Berding. “The ability to air all our games on television in just our second year is a tremendous achievement and will extend the FCC brand in the region as well as bring increased awareness of the strength of the United Soccer League.”
Tom Gelehrter returns as the play-by-play announcer for all of FCC’s home matches with Kevin McCloskey providing color analysis and Lindsay Patterson reporting from the sideline.
“We’re excited to partner with FC Cincinnati for the second straight year as the official television broadcast carrier of FC Cincinnati soccer,” said Jon Lawhead, Group Manager of the Sinclair Broadcast Group for Cincinnati/Dayton. “With the amazing success of the club last year, we look forward to bringing 31 exciting games to the tri-state in 2017.”
