New York's Fox stations share Giants


NEW YORK -- Fox's two local New York stations announced Thursday that they had reached a wide-ranging programming agreement with the New York Giants. WNYW Fox 5, the market's Fox O&O station, already carries Giants games as part of the network's NFC package. Now Giants programming will be on Fox 5 and WWOR My9, a MyNetworkTV affiliate that is also owned by Fox Television Stations Group.

The programming begins Aug. 5 with a weekly "Giants Training Camp Report." During the season, "Giants Game Plan" will air for a half-hour at 11:30 a.m. Sundays beginning Sept. 9. It will include interviews with the coach and players, as well as analysis and matchups for that day's game.

"Giants Access Blue," a 52-week series, starts Sept. 8 on My9 and features a behind-the-scenes look at the Giants players. My9 will also have the premiere of a documentary on the New York Giants later in the season.

The partnership extends online on a Giants and Fox Television Stations section of the Giants' Web sites. Fox 5's morning news show, "Good Day New York," also will air segments on the Giants.
