The New Orleans Pelicans are sticking with Bally Sports as their television broadcast partner for the 2023-24 NBA season.
The New Orleans Pelicans have announced Bally Sports will remain as the team’s television and radio broadcast schedule for the 2023-24 NBA season. The broadcasting giant is scheduled to air 78 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 (December 19th against the Memphis Grizzlies and April 11th against the Sacramento Kings). There could be two more Bally Sports nights, depending on how the NBA In-Season Tournament shakes out.
The league office will release the information for those two contests at a later date. But outside of those two possible games, the Bally Sports schedule is split evenly with 39 home and 39 away games.
Joel Meyers (who is entering his 12th season) and Antonio Daniels (fifth) return to the Pelicans television booth for play-by-play and color analyst duties. Jennifer Hale also begins her 12th season as a sideline reporter. Hale is earning her ‘hardest woman working in sports’ moniker. The Emmy and Edward R. Murrow award-winning journalist is also in her 13th season as a sideline reporter for the NFL on FOX.
Meyers is a two-time Emmy award-winning play-by-play announcer bringing over 30 years of experience to the organization. Daniels is a 14-year NBA veteran, including 61 games with the New Orleans Hornets in 2008-09. He has been with the broadcast crew since 2019.
Bally Sports will start their production season with the Pelicans preseason opener at the Smoothie King Center against the Orlando Magic on October 10th. Fans can watch Zion Williamson ramp up in the other three warm-up exhibitions by watching the live streams on Pelicans.com and the Pelicans Mobile App.
