HURRICANES ANNOUNCE 69-GAME TELEVISION SCHEDULE

Fox Sports Net, Fox 50 Digital and Time Warner Cable Combine for Most Broadcasts in Team History

RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 21, 2003) – Ken Lehner, Vice President of Marketing Communications for the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced the team’s 2003-04 television schedule. The Hurricanes’ cable TV rightsholder, Fox Sports Net will carry 55 regular-season games and Fox 50 Digital, in partnership Time Warner Cable, will carry 14 games in high definition, making this the largest television package in team history.

The television package features 33 road games and 22 home games on Fox Sports Net, including the Hurricanes’ season-opener at Florida’s Office Depot Center on Oct. 9, the home-opener at the RBC Center against New Jersey on Oct. 11 and Carolina’s final regular-season game at Florida on April 4. Fox 50 Digital on Time Warner Cable will broadcast an additional 14 home games exclusively available in high definition, over the air and on Time Warner Cable Digital Service, channel 250. A standard definition broadcast of these 14 games is also available on Time Warner Cable Digital Service on channel 251.

“We are thrilled to increase the number of games we will be carrying this year,” said Lehner. “Our television partners are top notch. As a result, we will be bringing the highest number of televised games in team history to our beloved Caniacs, as well as some of the newest technologies with our high-definition broadcasts.”

John Forslund enters his ninth season as the television voice of the Hurricanes and his 13th overall with the club. Forslund will once again team with Tripp Tracy to provide all the exciting NHL hockey action on Hurricanes television broadcasts. In addition to his work with the Hurricanes, Forslund works with ESPN when the schedule allows, most recently during the 2003 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Tracy returns for his sixth year as the Hurricanes television color analyst. After graduating from Harvard University, Tracy served as a goaltender in the Hurricanes’ organization before joining Forslund in the broadcast booth.

Along with the 69-game schedule on Fox Sports Net, Fox 50 Digital and Time Warner Cable, the Hurricanes will have three games carried nationally on ESPN2. Along with a split broadcast with Fox Sports Net at Detroit on Jan. 31, ESPN2 will air Carolina’s match up with the Bruins from FleetCenter on Oct. 23 and the team’s home game against the New York Rangers on Jan. 8, making a total of 71 of 82 games available on television in the local market.

The Hurricanes open their seventh season in North Carolina on Oct. 9 at Florida, before returning to the RBC Center for their home opener, Saturday, Oct. 11 against defending Stanley Cup champion New Jersey. Ticket packages for the 2003-04 season are available by calling 1-888-NHL-TIX1.
