LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – The Los Angeles Rams and CBS 2 Los Angeles today announced a multi-year partnership agreement that officially designates CBS 2 as the Official Preseason Television Home of the Rams.
The announcement was made today by Kevin Demoff, Rams Chief Operating Officer and Steve Mauldin, President and General Manager, CBS 2 and sister station KCAL 9.
As the Rams’ official preseason television partner, CBS 2 will provide the Los Angeles market with exclusive English-language telecasts of all Rams preseason games, excluding contests that will be broadcast by the National Football League’s national television partners.
In 2016, CBS 2 will air live coverage of three Rams preseason games, including a Saturday, August 20 home game against Kansas City, a Saturday, August 27 contest at Denver, and a Thursday, September 1 game at Minnesota.
In addition, CBS 2 will produce and broadcast a weekly half-hour show with Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher and CBS 2 Sports Director Jim Hill. CBS 2 viewers will also receive the latest Rams news during the station’s nightly “Sports Central” reports.
“Everyone at CBS 2 is thrilled to have the opportunity to play a role in welcoming the Rams back to Los Angeles,” Mauldin said. “We look forward to helping the team to connect with local communities across Southern California, not only through our preseason game broadcasts, but also by providing comprehensive daily coverage of the Rams in our newscasts and supporting the team’s community outreach programs.”
“We’re proud to be partnering with CBS 2 as we kick off our first preseason back in Los Angeles,” said Rams Chief Operating Officer/Executive Vice President Kevin Demoff. “CBS 2 will help bring the Rams closer to our fans with entertaining and informative preseason telecasts, in addition to exclusive interviews and regular season coverage of the team both on and off the field.”
