FSWisconsin Announces Brewers Regular Season Television Broadcast Schedule
From the press release:
FOX Sports Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Brewers announced today a 150-game television schedule for the 2013 season. FOX Sports Wisconsin will serve as the exclusive television home for the Milwaukee Brewers, televising nearly every game not scheduled for national network TV. This season commemorates a 15 year partnership between the Milwaukee Brewers and the sports network.
FOX Sports Wisconsin’s regular season coverage begins Monday, April 1 with the Brewers home opener against Colorado, the first of six televised games against the Rockies.
Other highlights from the 2013 schedule include: fifteen games against the division rival Chicago Cubs, a pair of home-and-home series with the Minnesota Twins scheduled for May 27-30 and seven games against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants.
Brian Anderson will continue to call the play-by-play this season alongside Bill Schroeder, who enters his eighteenth season as Brewers analyst. Brewers Live airs before and after Brewers telecasts with Craig Coshun, Jeff Grayson, Telly Hughes and Sophia Minnaert reporting. FOX Sports Wisconsin broadcasts will also feature analysis from former Brewers first base coach Davey Nelson and former Brewer Jerry Augustine.
FOX Sports Wisconsin will also televise a total of five Brewers spring training games in 2013 beginning with a 3:00 p.m. telecast on Monday, March 11 when the Brewers face the L.A. Dodgers.
All games are broadcast in high definition.
FOX Sports Wisconsin reaches more than 1.5 million homes and telecasts nearly 2,600 hours of locally produced programming per year. For more information on the Emmy Award-winning regional sports network, visit: http://www.foxsportswisconsin.com.

In other words, there are 12 dates which FSWisconsin is not currently the go-to television source. Of those, half are dates covered by the FOXSPORTS mothership’s “MLB ON FOX” on Saturdays. The remaining dates which are not currently scheduled to be aired anywhere on broadcast television are:
- Wednesday, May 1 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates @ 12:10pm CT
- Wednesday, June 5 vs. Oakland Athletics @ 1:10pm CT
- Thursday, July 25 vs. San Diego Padres @ 1:10pm CT
- Wednesday, August 21 vs. St. Louis Cardinals @ 1:10pm CT
- Friday, September 6 vs. Chicago Cubs @ 1:20pm CT
- Thursday, September 19 vs. Chicago Cubs @ 1:10pm CT
They are all day games and all but one of them is mid-week. The Friday afternoon in Chicago is a little baffling, but perhaps WGN will carry it for us here in southeastern Wisconsin.
