Aug. 11, 2008
FRESNO, Calif. - With the excitement of a Top 25-ranked football team, Bulldog Sports Properties and Fresno State announce a four-game football and a seven-game men's basketball schedule for the upcoming 2008-09 seasons on the Bulldog Sports Network.
New this year, KAIL-TV Digital 7.1 (MY 53) will serve as the flagship station of Fresno State sports and air all of the Fresno State games in their entirety. Fresno State broadcasts can also be seen on MD Digital 7.1 on HDTV.
"Excited isn't a big enough word to cover how we feel about being the new broadcast home of The Bulldogs. Fresno State is more than a university or sports teams. In industry terms, Fresno State is the Central Valley's premiere brand," said Robert M. Jenkins, II Program Director, KAIL-TV.
Bulldog Sports Properties will have continued coverage in Bakersfield for this coming season. KUVI-TV in Bakersfield will air all four Fresno State football broadcasts live. In addition, Comcast SportsNet will carry live Fresno State football in Northern California and Western Nevada in great cities like San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, Sacramento and Reno.
Longtime "Voice of the Bulldogs", Ralph Wood will call play-play and Randy Rosenbloom will provide the color commentary in Football and Wood will be joined by Bob Donawald for men's basketball telecasts on the Bulldogs Sports Network. Ralph Wood has served as the Bulldog voice since 1994.
