Sacramento Republic FC have partnered with CW31 and Sports 1140 KHTK to broadcast several of the club’s home matches. Thirteen of Republic FC’s 15 USL home matches will air on CW31 and/or Sports 1140 KHTK.
CBS13/CW31 and Sports 1140 KHTK are the official broadcast partners of Sacramento Republic FC.
“As a club, we made a commitment to our fans and the community that we’d be leaders in the region, league and sport; a commitment that wouldn’t be possible without partnerships that include CW31, CBS13 and Sports 1140 KHTK,” said Vice President of Marketing and Communications Erika Bjork. “We look forward to another season with CW31, Sports 1140AM and Franklin Pictures as they serve as our storytellers for the beautiful game and our indomitable city.”
Eight matches will be televised live on CW31, including both of Republic FC’s matches versus LA Galaxy II, as well as their Home Opener against Arizona United SC on Saturday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m. Eleven matches will be aired live on radio via Sports 1140 KHTK.
Matches televised by CW31 will feature the duo of Rob McAllister and Kevin Goldthwaite, who will return to the booth for their third season with the club. Good Day Sacramento anchor Julissa Ortiz will resume duties as sideline reporter to round out the television broadcast team.
“We are thrilled to be the television broadcast home of Sacramento Republic FC,” said Kevin Walsh, General Manager CW31 and sister station CBS13. “Our broadcasts give the team’s passionate fans a place to see the game during sellouts and lets casual fans see what all the excitement in our community is about.”
Franklin Pictures will produce the television broadcasts, led by Executive Producer Rusty Prevatt. Franklin Pictures produced the 2014 USL Championship match broadcast that won an Emmy for best sports broadcast in Northern California. The televised matches will be available in Spanish using SAP.
