MIAMI (March 13, 2019) — FOX Sports Florida, the exclusive television home of the Miami Marlins, announced today the network will produce and televise all 162 regular season Marlins games during the 2019 Major League Baseball season.
Opening Day coverage begins live from Marlins Park with a special, one-hour pregame show, starting at 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 28, when the Marlins host the Colorado Rockies. Additional programming details for Opening Day are forthcoming. All broadcasts throughout the season will feature half-hour “Marlins Live” pregame shows along with extended postgame coverage from the ball park. “Marlins Live” will originate from Marlins Park for home games, while away games will be anchored from the FOX Sports studio.
Paul Severino returns for his second season as play-by-play announcer, while former Marlins player Todd Hollandsworth is back for his third year in the broadcast booth as color analyst. Four-time World Series Champion Jeff Nelson, former Marlins player Gaby Sanchez, longtime Marlins announcer Tommy Hutton and former MLB catcher J.P. Arencibia will all play a role as analysts in the network’s pregame and postgame coverage throughout the season. Craig Minervini will begin his 18th season as host and in-game reporter, in addition to Jessica Blaylock, who enters her fifth season as in-game reporter and host. Kelly Saco rounds out the broadcast team in her second season as contributing host and in-game reporter.
All Marlins programming – including games and studio shows – on FOX Sports Florida will be available on FOX Sports GO, the live streaming platform that showcases all of the FOX Sports Regional Networks’ events and studio programming through pay-TV providers. Additionally, SAP (secondary audio programming) in Spanish will be made available for all home game telecasts.
Going beyond the games, FOX Sports Florida’s partnership with the Marlins provides fans with opportunities to get to know the team and its players. Three half-hour episodes of FOX Sports Florida’s popular “Inside the Marlins” are planned this year and will include player and coach profiles, with exclusive behind-the-scenes stories and interviews. “Marlins Clubhouse,” a magazine style television series aimed at showcasing stories in and around Marlins baseball, returns for a fifth season on the network. Hosted by Saco and new kid reporter Bridget, “Marlins Clubhouse” will premiere four new episodes throughout the season with a focus on young baseball viewers and local success stories.
