Big Sky inks broadcast deal with E.W. Scripps stations for '22-23

Big Sky Conference games "will now be broadcast on E.W. Scripps Stations" for the '22-23 year, but the agreement with ESPN+ "will remain for those to watch," according to Jadyn Watson-Fisher of the GREELEY TRIBUNE. Football, men's basketball and women's basketball games are "part of the initial expansion." The new agreement "strongly favors the Montana schools, as Scripps will broadcast 14 conference football games that feature Montana and Montana State." It also will air the "annual 'Brawl of the Wild' rivalry game between the two teams on the Scripps Montana CBS Stations." Additionally, the company "will have first broadcast rights for eight men's or women's basketball games featuring Montana or Montana State" (GREELEY TRIBUNE, 5/19).
