Two Packers Preseason Games Set For National TV


The Packers-Browns preseason game will be nationally-televised by CBS.

The Green Bay Packers will have two of their five preseason games carried on national television this year.

Wednesday, the NFL released the preseason national TV schedule, which indicated that the Packers' preseason contest against the Cleveland Browns will be carried by CBS. That's in addition to the previously-announced ABC coverage of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, which features the Packers against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Packers will meet the Browns in a 7 p.m. CT kickoff, Friday, August 15, at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

The Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, is Monday, August 4 at 7 p.m. CT.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will face the New York Jets in the American Bowl in Tokyo, Japan, are the only team other than the Packers with two nationally-televised preseason games.

The Packers' three other preseason games will be carried on statewide TV. Exact dates and times for those games will be determined in the next few weeks.

CBS Sports and Green Bay's WFRV-TV in conjunction with Milwaukee's WTMJ-TV will televise the remaining three games over an expanded, eight-station network throughout the state of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, with CBS network production, personnel and the latest network quality technology.

In addition to WFRV-TV and WTMJ-TV, the games will be televised over WKOW/ABC, Madison, Wis.; WAOW/ABC, Wausau/Rhinelander, Wis.; WXOW/ABC, La Crosse, Wis.; WQOW/ABC, Eau Claire; WYOW/ABC, Eagle River, Wis.; and WJMN/CBS, Marquette, Mich.
