|FOX 50 To Broadcast Durham Bulls’ Games|
The Durham Bulls are taking to the airwaves this season. FOX 50, the Capitol Broadcasting’s WRAZ-TV in Durham, will broadcast 36 Durham Bulls games throughout the summer. Broadcast live, the games will appear in multi-cast on FOX 50’s digital channel 49, available via digital antenna or digital cable. Time Warner Cable customers can see the games on digital channel 251.
“Minor league baseball games are rarely seen on television, and we have a tremendous opportunity to share the experience with people here in the Triangle,” said Bulls General Manager George Habel. “It’s cool to take advantage of this advanced technology considering this year we’re celebrating the 100th anniversary of minor league baseball.”
