Ch. 5 Picks Up Bengals NFL Network Game

For the second year, WLWT-TV will simulcast the Bengals' NFL Network game later this season. Ch. 5 has rights to the Bengals-San Francicso 49ers game at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at San Francisco. (NFL Network incorrectly lists game as a Bengals home game.) Bryant Gumbel and Emmy-winning NFL analyst Cris Collinsworth will do the game.

Ch. 5 carried the Bengals-Ravens game last Nov. 30, the second NFL Network telecast in the inaugural season.

One more note for Bengals fans: Dennis Janson, John Popovich and the Ch 9 sports gang preview the Bengals season with "Stripes 2007" 8-9 p.m. Thursday, pre-empting a repeat of the Emmy-nominated "Ugly Betty" pilot.

It should be in HD, like last year.

I believe this game is in Frisco, not at PBS.

To Anon 2:36 p.m
Yes, you're right. Bengals-49ers game is at Frisco, so I corrected what I wrote. NFL Network incorrectly lists the 12/15 game as 49ers @ Bengals.

Who is the ch 9 sports gang? Jansen, Popovich, and the ch 9 sports gang. Heard Lisa Cornwell plugging it over the weekend. Is she the gang or am I missing someone?

The "gang" consists of a producer and a couple photogs. In case you didn't know, it takes more than the talking heads to put TV on the air...
