FOX Sports Wisconsin and Milwaukee Brewers Announce 2014 Telecast Schedule

Today, we, along with FOX Sports Wisconsin, announced a 150-game television schedule for the 2014 season. FOX Sports Wisconsin will serve as the exclusive local television home for the Milwaukee Brewers. Select Brewers games also will be televised nationally on FOX Sports and FOX Sports 1.  

FOX Sports Wisconsin’s regular season coverage begins Monday, March 31, with the Brewers’ home opener against Atlanta — the first of seven televised games against the Braves.

Other highlights from the 2014 schedule include: eighteen games against the division rival Chicago Cubs, a pair of home-and-home series with the Minnesota Twins scheduled for June 2-5, and three games against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox.

Brian Anderson will continue to serve as the primary play-by-play announcer with newcomer Matt Lepay joining analyst Bill Schroeder in the broadcast booth for select telecasts. Craig Coshun also will serve as play-by-play announcer for select telecasts late in the season while continuing his role as the main host for Brewers Live pre and postgame shows. Brewers Live airs before and after Brewers telecasts with Jeff Grayson, Telly Hughes and Sophia Minnaert reporting as well as analysis from former first base coach Davey Nelson and former Brewer Jerry Augustine.

FOX Sports Wisconsin also will televise a total of fourteen Brewers home spring training games in 2014. For the complete schedule, click here.

All games are broadcast in high definition.

“Social Media in the Media” Night (#BrewersSMIM) Recap

Last night, prior to the Brewers vs. Twins game, we hosted John and Cait present…”Social Media in the Media” Night (#BrewersSMIM) at Miller Park!

Attendees for this sold out event had the opportunity to take part in a special pregame panel/roundtable discussion in the Brewers media interview room featuring representatives from the local media including:

  • Jon Byman ( @JonByman) News Director for 620 WTMJ Radio
  • Tom Haudricourt @Haudricourt ) Brewers beat writer for The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (via phone)
  • Sophia Minnaert ( @SophiaMinnaert ) Milwaukee Brewers & Bucks Sideline Reporter for FSWisconsin
  • Vince Vitrano ( @VinceVitrano ) WTMJ “Live at Daybreak” anchor

In addition, Brewers pitcher John Axford ( @JohnAxford), the first Brewers player to become active on social media, also made an appearance at the event.

The panel discussion included talk about how the media uses social media as a tool to report and to interact with the people that consume traditional media. In addition, here’s a random assortment of things we learned as per the Twitterverse:

1) Tom Haudricourt is, indeed, NOT Lindsay Lohan:

2) According to Sophia Minnaert, the average baseball fan watches 16 minutes of a game on TV

3) How social media is driving readership/viewership/listenership:

4) How media balance the importance of being first vs. being right:

5) Axford likes showing fans his personal side and started #SystemofaDownSaturday:

If you’re interested in checking out more of the conversation from last night’s event, check out Cait’s Storify Story here.

Following the panel, the group moved to the  ATI Club for the game where they enjoyed a buffet and beverages (the brisket was delicious!). The game turned into a 14-inning affair which ended just shortly before midnight, so the attendees got to see two Sausage Races and take part in two 7th Inning Stretches. And, although ultimately, the Crew fell to the Twins 6-5, everyone we talked to had a great time and enjoyed the event and camaraderie.

Here is a slideshow from the night, made up of our photos and yours!

Do you have additional feedback for us? Ideas for next year? Share them in the comments below, send us a tweet, or shoot us an email. We enjoyed talking with you last night in person and we love hearing from you as much as possible.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was great to meet some of our readers in person and to put faces with your Twitter handles.  It is these kind of events that really put the “social” in social media.

Thanks again for coming out! Keep watching John and Cait for information on other upcoming events!

John and Cait Present…”Social Media in the Media” Night at Miller Park on May 28

It’s John and Cait here and we’re excited to tell you that we’re bringing back Social Media Night for 2013!

On Tuesday, May 28 prior to the Brewers vs. Twins game we’ll be hosting John and Cait present…”Social Media in the Media” Night (#BrewersSMIM) at Miller Park!

For just $59, fans will have the opportunity to purchase individual tickets in the ATI Club and the tickets will include a special pregame panel/roundtable discussion featuring representatives from the local media. We’ll discuss how social media has changed the news cycle and the business of reporting. Tickets are available at brewers.com/socialmedianight.

You’ll hear from:

  • Tom Haudricourt @Haudricourt ) Brewers beat writer for The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
  • Sophia Minnaert ( @SophiaMinnaert ) Milwaukee Brewers & Bucks Sideline Reporter for FSWisconsin
  • Vince Vitrano ( @VinceVitrano ) WTMJ “Live at Daybreak” anchor
  • …and more!

Plus! Enjoy a special visit from a Brewers player!

We’ll be your hosts for the event and it will take place in our Media Interview Room, so you’ll also get to go behind-the-scenes at Miller Park.

Tickets for the ATI Club are typically only available for group purchase, but through “Social Media in the Media” Night, we’re giving fans this special opportunity to purchase them individually. The tickets also include a pre-game buffet that begins when the Miller Park gates open and ends one hour after the first pitch, plus unlimited soft drinks and two beers per adult.

Fans will have the opportunity to ask questions at the event, but if there are any questions you’d like to submit ahead of time, please e-mail us at johnandcait@brewers.com.

This event is in follow up to last year’s Social Media in Sports Night. That event sold out very quickly and we expect this year’s to do the same, so you’ll want to purchase your tickets early since the event will be limited to approximately 60 fans. Visit brewers.com/socialmedianight for more information and stay tuned to the blog for updates!

We hope to see you there!
