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.
