PORT ARTHUR —
More than 75 million homes will be able to watch this year’s Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) when it airs on NBC Sports Network November 11 according to officials with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD).
The TTBC event was held in Conroe September 28-30 and featured three days of country music and a barbecue cook-off championship.
“Being able to air on NBC Sports Network is a great showcase for the world’s top anglers,” Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur said.
“Sharing TTBC with such a large number of people is exciting, and it provides TPWD’s conservation and education efforts with a broader audience. Fans will get a great look at what professional anglers deal with during competition.”
TPWD reported that as the broadcast partner of TTBC, NBC Sports Network will air the championship in an hour-long broadcast. There will also be one weekday re-air, to be announced at a later date. The debut will air on Sunday, November 11, 2012, at 8:00 a.m. CST.
“Those who tune into the broadcast will watch 50 of the world’s best anglers compete for the TTBC title. The field includes representatives from the Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series, the Walmart FLW Tour and the Bassmaster Elite Series, making it the only event to bring anglers from all the major tours to compete for one title.”
