Bengals, Local12 extend agreement

Posted Apr 16, 2012


The Bengals and Local12 (WKRC-TV) have reached a multi-year agreement to continue their partnership for team programming. Local12 will again be the flagship station for the Bengals Preseason TV Network, and other programming in the partnership will include:

» "Bengals Weekly with Marvin Lewis," airing regular-season Sundays at 11:30 a.m.
» “Bengals Backstage,” airing Sundays at 11:35 p.m. in September
» “Bengals Preview Show,” a one-hour special in August.
» “Around the League in 180 Seconds,” the NFL highlight package that airs in-stadium during halftime.

Local12 also will continue to independently produce the “Bengals Nation” show, and as Cincinnati’s CBS network affiliate, Local12 will also have the rights to most Bengals regular season games.

“Local12 has been a great partner for our team, and we are very pleased to extend the agreement,” said Katie Blackburn, Bengals executive vice-president. "It begins with our preseason game broadcasts, but Local12’s involvement with our in-season programming is an equally big part. The shows have gotten better every year, and we look forward to that continuing this year and beyond.”

Les Vann, Local12 vice-president and general manager, said, “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Cincinnati Bengals. The team has been a great business partner and consistently produces the highest television audiences in the history of Cincinnati TV. We are delighted to be able to bring these games and programs into homes in the tri-state and also to be associated with the great things the Bengals do in our community.”

Local12 Sports Director Brad Johansen will again work with Bengals Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz as the broadcast team for Bengals preseason games.
