Caitlin Clark boost leads to major broadcast partnership to show Fever games

May 8, 2024

TEGNA Inc. and the Indiana Fever announced an expansive broadcast partnership that will bring Fever games to an unprecedented number of households across the country. The collaboration, which includes 11 additional markets joining TEGNA’s Indianapolis NBC affiliate, WTHR, marks a milestone in the promotion of the WNBA and women’s sports on broadcast television.

The expanded footprint of this partnership means that 17 Fever games will now be available for free over-the-air viewing in 12 markets, reaching approximately 4.6 million homes. This move comes in response to the growing anticipation surrounding the Fever’s upcoming season, fueled in large part by the arrival of No. 1 overall draft pick Clark and 2023 WNBA Rookie of the Year Aliyah Boston.
