The release of Cox Sports Television’s game schedule for 2008-09 brought more good news for Hornets fans. When Cox drew up its 65-game broadcast docket, the network elected not to double up on any of New Orleans’ 13 national television games. As a result, there will be 78 Hornets games available on either local or national airwaves this season, a franchise record, according to Lew Shuman, the team’s director of broadcasting.
In addition, starting with the Dec. 23 home game vs. the Lakers, each of the Hornets’ final 59 regular season contests will be broadcast locally or nationally.
