NBC SPORTS NETWORK ACQUIRES MULTI-YEAR RIGHTS TO AIR DIRECTV'S "THE DAN PATRICK SHOW"

NBC Sports Network Will Relocate to Channel 220 on DIRECTV Beginning Tomorrow to Coincide with Debut of The Dan Patrick Show

Program Starring Football Night in America Co-Host Dan Patrick to Air Weekdays, 9 a.m.-Noon ET

One-Hour "Best Of" to Air Weekdays, 4-5 p.m. ET

NEW YORK - November 4, 2012 - NBC Sports Network has acquired multi-year rights from DIRECTV to air The Dan Patrick Show, the renowned sports television show and syndicated radio program starring Football Night in America co-host Dan Patrick. The Dan Patrick Show will debut on NBC Sports Network tomorrow and air weekdays from 9 a.m.-Noon ET. A "Best Of" version will air weekday afternoons from 4-5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network

To coincide with the debut of the show tomorrow, NBC Sports Network will relocate to Channel 220 (from Channel 603) on DIRECTV, which is adjacent to other national sports channels. DIRECTV owns and operates The Dan Patrick Show, which airs daily on DIRECTV's exclusive Audience Network as well.

"Dan and the Danettes generate buzz and relevance every day with their entertaining format and top-line guests, making The Dan Patrick Show a perfect morning fit for the NBC Sports Network and its new channel position on DIRECTV," said Jon Miller, President, Programming, NBC Sports & NBC Sports Network.

"I've loved my time working for NBC Sports, on both Football Night in America and the Olympic coverage, and I really wanted to see our show on NBC Sports Network," said Patrick. "This is good for the show, the channel and, most of all, the fans. I think the show that we have created with DIRECTV will be perfect for NBC Sports Network as part of its daily lineup."

Patrick added, "I like where the NBC Sports Network is going. I think we are joining a powerhouse sports network in its early stages. I did this once before in my career and it worked out pretty well."

"We are extremely proud of the work Dan, the Danettes and the DIRECTV Entertainment team have done to create a truly distinctive TV show that has redefined the genre, or as Dan likes to describe it: 'A TV show about a radio show on TV'," said Chris Long, senior vice president, Entertainment and Production for DIRECTV. "Our incredibly creative production team has developed a show for our Audience Network that just keeps getting better year by year, so we're not surprised NBC Sports Network wanted it for their morning line-up."

The Dan Patrick Show will follow The 'Lights, NBC Sports Network's new highlights show that launched this summer. Designed to serve the busy morning schedule of sports fans, The 'Lights, which will air from 8-9 a.m. ET, is a 20-minute sports report that uses a unique presentation of simultaneous video clips, graphics and voiceovers to deliver scores and information.

"Dan's show will combine with The 'Lights to give NBC Sports Network a morning programming block that truly super-serves sports fans by providing them with all the highlights they need, followed by Dan's unique perspective on sports and entertainment," added Miller.
