FOX Sports Wisconsin, Milwaukee Bucks announce 2016-17 TV schedule
FOX Sports Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday announced a 79-game broadcast schedule for the 2016-17 season.
The regional sports network’s regular-season Bucks coverage tips off on Wednesday, Oct. 26, when the Bucks host the Charlotte Hornets.
The broadcast will feature a special one-hour edition of "Bucks Live," beginning at 6 p.m.
The broadcast team will feature Gus Johnson and Marques Johnson, who return for a second season.
The duo rejoin longtime Bucks announcers Jim Paschke and Jon McGlocklin, who are entering their 31st and 41st years of calling Bucks action.
Joining the broadcast team this year is Bucks legend Vin Baker, who will provide analysis on "Bucks Live" before and after select games throughout the season.
Former Bucks and Marquette University alum Tony Smith reprises his role as an analyst on "Bucks Live," alongside anchors Craig Coshun and Jeff Grayson, which airs before and after every Bucks telecast throughout the season.
Telly Hughes and Sophia Minnaert will handle sideline reporting duties.
"Vin Baker is an exciting addition to our top-notch Bucks broadcast team," Mike Dimond, senior vice president and general manager for FOX Sports Wisconsin, said. "Fans will enjoy watching the Bucks legend and hearing how his unique experiences in the NBA shape his analysis throughout the season."
