NESN will televise 23 Connecticut Sun games during the 2019 season
On May 17 the Connecticut Sun announced a partnership with NESN, who will televise 23 of the team’s games on NESN and NESNplus this season.
This additional coverage benefits both the Sun and NESN, who already broadcast Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins games.
“This new partnership is tremendous for the Connecticut Sun and its loyal fan base … With 23 games locally on NESN combined with our national coverage, we can now showcase our exciting brand of basketball in households across New England,” said Amber Cox, Vice President of the Connecticut Sun, in a press release.
Rick Jaffe, NESN’s Vice President of Programming and production, said in a press release, “We are excited to team up with the Connecticut Sun to add WNBA basketball as another staple to NESN’s summer programming lineup … By adding the Sun to our lineup this summer, we now have elite women’s sports on NESN 12 months a year.”
The games will be called by top-notch talent including Bob Heussler as play-by-play for all home games and Sarah Kustok, Rebecca Lobo, Kim Adams, and LaChina Robinson as color analysts.
This will be Heussler’s 17th season with the sun, though he has over 30 years of play-by-play experience.
Kustok is YES Network’s primary analyst for the Brooklyn Nets and this will be her third season with the Sun.
Lobo, an analyst for ESPN, wrapped up her playing career with the Sun in 2003, has served as an analyst frequently since her retirement.
Adams, who played at the University of Pennsylvania, is a national college basketball analyst and sideline reporter for Fox Sports, SNY and Westwood One Radio.
Robinson has served as an analyst with ESPN since 2009 and has also served as an analyst on Fox Sports one and NBA TV for both NCAA and WNBA games.
