Packers extend broadcast partnership with Today's TMJ4, NBC 26

Posted Apr 20, 2017

Partnership extension includes ‘Family Night’ production and broadcast


The Green Bay Packers announced Thursday that TODAY’S TMJ4 (WTMJ-TV Milwaukee) will continue to produce, broadcast and distribute most of the Packers’ preseason games and weekly programming.

Additionally, TODAY’S TMJ4 will now produce and broadcast “Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health,” the team’s annual family-focused event at Lambeau Field that includes a full practice and a game-like atmosphere.

NBC 26 (WGBA-TV Green Bay), TODAY’S TMJ4 sister station, will also continue to broadcast preseason games and weekly programming, and adds the ‘Family Night’ broadcast to its Packers programming.

“We’re pleased to extend our partnership and continue working with TODAY’S TMJ4 and NBC 26,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We appreciate our shared dedication to Packers fans and the Wisconsin community, and we look forward to remaining connected to viewers and fans through each broadcast.”

“We truly value our partnership with the Green Bay Packers,” said TODAY’S TMJ4 vice president and general manager, Joe Poss. “We’re not just broadcast partners. We’re Packers fans and we hope that shows in the way we produce every game and weekly show.” 

“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with the Packers,” said Peter Marquardt, vice president and general manager of NBC 26. “Packers pre-season and the addition of ‘Packers Family Night’ connects NBC 26 with the community in ways no other local station can.  These events capture the true spirit of what the Green Bay Packers and NBC 26 are all about.”

The Packers TV Network extends into every television market in Wisconsin, including TODAY’S TMJ4 sister station NBC26 (WGBA-TV) in Green Bay. Production of “The Mike McCarthy Show” and “Packers Live with Larry McCarren” are also part of the Packers TV Network agreement. Those programs air weekly throughout the season.
