First-ever playoff "WhiteOut" to be Seen by Fans Across the State
PHOENIX - KTVK 3TV will bring Phoenix Coyotes playoff action to hockey fans across the state of Arizona as the team takes the ice in their first playoff berth since the 2001-2002 season. The Coyotes' first-ever playoff "WhiteOut" at Jobing.com Arena will air Wednesday, April 14th at 7 p.m. on 3TV as the team plays host to the Detroit Red Wings.
3TV will drop the puck on playoff excitement early Wednesday morning with live coverage in the station's highly popular morning show "Good Morning Arizona" from Jobing.com Arena.
Later, fans can tune in to 3TV's "Good Evening Arizona" to see extensive pre-game action starting at 4:30 p.m. live from Jobing.com Arena. 3TV will also provide fans all access post game coverage in a special late edition of "3TV News at 9 p.m." immediately after the game.
"Following a tremendously successful regular season, we felt that it was very important to broadcast the first-ever playoff WhiteOut at Jobing.com Arena to as wide an audience as possible in order to reward our wonderfully supportive fans throughout the state of Arizona," said Phoenix Coyotes President and Chief Operating Officer Douglas Moss. "We would like to thank our partners at FOX Sports Arizona and KTVK for helping to make this a reality."
"3TV believes Coyotes' playoff hockey is important to Arizona fans," said Nick Nicholson, President and General Manger. "It is always great to see a home town team succeed. As Arizona's station, what better way to share the excitement with fans across the state than broadcast the game live on 3TV."
The game will be produced by FOX Sports Arizona.
