The Kansas City Royals have announced an agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group to continue with a media rights deal for Fox Sports Kansas City to continue as television home of the Royals.
New Royals Chairman and CEO John Sherman said, “On behalf of our organization, I’m excited to announce we have reached this agreement with the Sinclair Broadcast Group to continue to bring Royals baseball to our fan base on FOX Sports Kansas City. FSKC has been an outstanding partner since the 2008 season, not only in bringing our fans the action on the field but working with us in our community and in countless charity endeavors. We currently are ranked fourth in Major League Baseball in television ratings thanks to our fans who are among the most knowledgeable and loyal in all of baseball.”
FOX Sports Kansas City is in its 13th season as the exclusive television home of Royals baseball, and 21st overall as the Royals TV partner. Ryan Lefebvre serves as play-by-play announcer for the majority of the games, while Steve Physioc occasionally takes those duties. Rex Hudler will return as game analyst, with Joel Goldberg and Jeff Montgomery anchoring the pre and post-game shows.
