ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals announced Thursday that every 2014 regular-season game will be televised locally or nationally as well as broadcast on the Cardinals Radio Network.
In its 21st season with the team, FOX Sports Midwest is scheduled to carry 150 games in its fourth full season as the exclusive local TV home of the Cardinals. FOX Sports Midwest will continue to produce the "Cardinals Live" pregame and postgame shows for every regular-season telecast on the network.
This season, each FSMW telecast will originate from the network's new television studio on the second level of Ballpark Village overlooking the FOX Sports Midwest Live! marketplace.
In 2013, Cardinals telecasts on FOX Sports Midwest generated the second-highest local market television ratings in Major League Baseball, the 14th straight year in which the Cardinals ranked among the top three teams. FOX Sports Midwest-produced Cardinals telecasts are shown in nine states and available in approximately 4 million homes.
Ten regular-season games are scheduled to be carried exclusively as part of Major League Baseball's national television packages with FOX (aired locally on KTVI), ESPN and, new this year, FOX Sports 1. The Sept. 20 and 21 games against the Cincinnati Reds have yet to be scheduled but will be carried by FOX Sports Midwest or a national network. The schedule is subject to change based on future Major League Baseball national television selections.
A team-record 18 Grapefruit League spring training games will also be televised live, starting Friday, Feb. 28, on FOX Sports Midwest. An all-time-high 15 spring games will air on FOX Sports Midwest, with additional games on MLB Network and ESPN.
In addition to televised game coverage, KMOX (AM 1120), the team's flagship radio station, will carry every regular-season game, as well as 18 spring training games on the Cardinals Radio Network and various shows live from Ballpark Village. This year marks KMOX's fourth season returning as the flagship station and 55th year overall. Broadcasters Mike Shannon and John Rooney are heard on 126 radio stations in nine Midwest states as part of the Cardinals Radio Network.
