Posted Jun 14, 2013

Cincinnati's NBC television affiliate, WLWT (Channel 5), will have local broadcast rights for all four Bengals prime-time games in 2013.

Cincinnati’s NBC television affiliate, WLWT (Channel 5), will have local broadcast rights for all four Bengals prime-time games in 2013.

In addition to its role as the only Cincinnati broadcaster for the Bengals scheduled December appearance on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, WLWT has worked with the NFL to acquire rights as the local non-cable simulcast provider of the team’s three other prime time games. Two of those will be aired by ESPN and one by NFL Network.

“We appreciate Channel 5’s strong interest in airing Bengals football,” said Bengals executive vice-president Katie Blackburn, “and we look forward to working with WLWT on additional programming that will accompany the game broadcasts. We think it’s a plus for our fans to be able to easily remember that all of our evening games will be on the same station.”

Richard Dyer, President and General Manager of WLWT, said: “We are extremely excited to expand our commitment to Bengals football for the upcoming season and look forward to being the local primetime home for fans in 2013.”

The prime-time lineup on WLWT will be:

    By Geoff Hobson - Posted 23 hours ago

    How fitting that on Wednesday Willie Anderson anchors the next-to-last installment of the vote choosing the Bengals’ top 50 players of all-time. Anderson, the franchise’s all-time right tackle, comes in at No. 14, just behind his right guard, Max Montoya at No. 13, and, even more fitting, just ahead of Corey Dillon at No. 15. Dillon, the club’s all-time rusher, ripped off 8,061 yards in 107 games and Anderson was his right tackle in 106 of them in those days the Bengals were also-rans who could run at will and behind Willie and Dillon is right with him again.
