Local ABC station to broadcast select Sacramento Kings games this year

The Sacramento Kings announced a new agreement to broadcast a select number of games with News 10, the state capital’s local ABC affiliate.  They will carry 10 Kings’ games during the 2012-13 NBA season.

From the official press release:

“The Kings organization is incredibly excited to welcome News10 back to our broadcast team,” said Matina Kolokotronis, Kings President of Business Operations. “News10 will serve as a valuable partner in helping broaden our local audience and deliver Kings games to even more households.”

“News10 is thrilled about the opportunity to share this exclusive partnership with the Kings,” said Maria Barrs, President and General Manager of News10. “We, like the rest of the community, expect this to be a big year for the team, and we’re energized about the chance to bring so many high-profile matchups to more local homes than ever before.”
