December 13, 2011 | View the entire 2011-12 Pacers schedule
INDIANAPOLIS – Beginning with the first preseason game, Friday, Dec. 16, vs. Chicago, and running through the final regular season game, Apr. 25, vs. the Bulls, FOX Sports Indiana will televise every Indiana Pacers game. It is the first time in franchise history that all games in a season will be on FOX Sports Indiana. All games will be available in high definition.
“FOX Sports Indiana is thrilled to have every Pacers game on television for the first time,” said FOX Sports Indiana General Manager and Senior Vice President Jack Donovan. “Like the fans, we anticipate a great season after the Pacers run to the playoffs last year.”
“This is terrific news for all our fans who receive FOX Sports Indiana,” said Pacers Vice President of Broadcasting Jamie Berns. “We are very appreciative of our partners at FOX for making this possible. We have a young, exciting team that started to show, at the end of last season and in the playoffs, that the Pacers are a team on the rise in the NBA and we’re very confident that trend will continue and provide viewers an entertaining product to watch.”
Chris Denari will handle play-by-play duties for his sixth straight season and will be joined by veteran analyst Quinn Buckner and former Pacers player Austin Croshere. Brooke Olzendam will be in her first season as pre and postgame host and sideline reporter. Clark Kellogg, who has been part of the Pacers’ broadcast team for 22 years, has relinquished his role as television analyst with the Indiana Pacers.
“In July, 2010, I accepted the position of Vice President of Player Relations for the Indiana Pacers,” said Kellogg. “Near the conclusion of the regular season last April, I realized that the challenges and demands of my new role would require a significant amount of energy and time. Therefore, in an effort to focus more intently on my new position, I will no longer serve as a TV analyst on FS Indiana. While I will miss that part of my involvement with our team, I am very excited about serving our players and team in my new role.”
