Rockies, AT&T Sports Networks reach extension

September 30th, 2019

DENVER -- The Rockies and AT&T Sports Networks on Monday announced a multiyear extension that will keep at least 150 live games per season on AT&T SportsNet.

Neither the Rockies nor AT&T Sports Networks revealed the number of years or financial terms.

The current contract runs through 2020. In February, Rockies owner, chairman and CEO Dick Monfort said the club expected to have talks with the network. At the time, Monfort said the Rockies’ contract brought the club about $40 million a year; at one point, the revenue was half that, but it rose during the life of the deal.

Monfort said then that the club hoped for more than the 150 games a year called for in the current deal. Monday’s announcement put the number of games at “at least 150.”

The announcement also said that announcers Drew Goodman (play-by-play for the last 18 seasons) and Jeff Huson (14 years as color commentator), Jenny Cavnar (who in 2018 became the first woman since 1993 to do play-by-play on a big league broadcast), former Rockies outfielders Ryan Spilborghs and Cory Sullivan and Colorado native Taylor McGregor will return.
