The New Orleans Pelicans announced today the team’s television and radio broadcast schedule for the 2023-24 season.
Bally Sports will broadcast 78 of the 80 scheduled regular season games on Bally Sports New Orleans and via streaming on the Bally Sports app. The two regular season games not being televised by Bally Sports are scheduled to air exclusively on TNT: Dec. 19 vs. Memphis and Apr. 11 at Sacramento. Broadcast information for the two remaining regular season games, which are determined by the results of the NBA In-Season Tournament, will be announced at a later date.
Bally Sports will tip off the Pelicans regular season on Wednesday, Oct. 25 with the opener against the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum. The local television broadcast schedule for the 2023-24 season features 39 home and 39 away contests.
Play-by-play announcer Joel Meyers and color analyst Antonio Daniels return to the Pelicans television booth for their twelfth and fifth seasons, respectively. Meyers, a two-time Emmy award-winning play-by-play announcer, brings more than 30 years of broadcast experience to the organization. Daniels, who played 14 seasons in the NBA including 61 games with the New Orleans Hornets in 2008-09, joined the broadcast team in 2019 after serving as a studio analyst for FOX Sports Oklahoma and FOX Sports Southwest during the previous four seasons. Jennifer Hale begins her twelfth season as sideline reporter. Hale, an Emmy and Edward R. Murrow award-winning journalist, is also in her 13th season as a sideline reporter for the NFL on FOX.
Bally Sports will provide extensive team coverage including Pelicans Live pregame and postgame shows, as well as Pelicans Insider, a bi-weekly program featuring player and coach profiles, game highlights and behind-the-scenes content.
In addition to producing 78 regular season games, Bally Sports will carry the Pelicans preseason opener at the Smoothie King Center against the Orlando Magic on October 10.
