New Orleans Hornets, FOX sports announce new long-term TV agreement

New Orleans, La. - The New Orleans Hornets and FOX Sports today announced that they have reached a long-term television rights agreement that establishes "FOX Sports New Orleans" as the new local television home of the Hornets.

Under the new agreement, FOX Sports New Orleans will televise approximately 75 regular-season Hornets games per season, including any games not selected for exclusive distribution by the NBA's national TV partners. 

FOX also announced that its regional sports network currently serving the New Orleans market (FOX Sports Southwest) will be re-launched as "FOX Sports New Orleans" in October to coincide with the start of the Hornets' 2012-13 season. 

"This is great news for our market, for our fans and for our region. This will be tremendous for the New Orleans Hornets and our continued growth.  It's important that we continue to brand our great city and we see no better way than our partnership with FOX Sports and the creation of FOX Sports New Orleans," said Tom Benson, Chairman of the New Orleans Hornets. "We will be able to further integrate our assets including with our local affiliate WVUE-TV Fox 8. There are many positive moves happening with the Hornets such as the improvements to the Arena and of course our upcoming selection of the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft and this announcement is just the beginning."

Hornets' coverage on FOX Sports New Orleans will include HORNETS LIVE pregame and postgame shows and other team shoulder programming.
