New TV deal for World Poker Tour
The World Poker Tour and Fox Sports Net have concluded a multi-season broadcast and promotional agreement for the distribution of seasons nine, 10 and 11 of the World Poker Tour television series.
The agreement features prime time national premiere air times of 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Sunday nights, as well as multiple repeat airings throughout the week. Additionally, WPT and FSN have agreed to extensive promotional advertising that will keep viewers up-to-date on new airings throughout the season.
Viewers also will find a host of new enhancements to the series, including the introduction of Kimberly Lansing in a new role as anchor of the show, a yet-to-be-named new analyst, who will host a recurring segment called “The Raw Deal,” a new tour stop at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., and the introduction of the Royal Flush Girls, who serve as on-set ambassadors and on-air fixtures for all of the WPT domestic stops.
