CHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox, FOX Sports Net, WGN-TV and ESPN Radio 1000 have announced the team's television and radio broadcast schedules for the 2002 season.

FOX Sports Net will televise 99 regular-season White Sox games, including the club's home opener on April 12 at 1:05 p.m, while WGN-TV will carry 29 games, including Opening Day on April 1 at Seattle (4:05 p.m. CT). WCIU-TV will televise 25 games, and seven White Sox games will air nationally as part of FOX's Saturday "Game of the Week" schedule.

Flagship radio station ESPN Radio 1000, featuring John Rooney on play-by-play and Ed Farmer as color commentator, will broadcast all 162 White Sox games for the seventh consecutive season in 2002.

The tandem of Ken "Hawk" Harrelson and Darrin Jackson begins its third season together, televising 153 regular-season White Sox games on FOX Sports Net, WGN-TV and WCIU-TV. All 162 White Sox games will be televised with two (June 14 and June 16) appearing locally only as Cubs broadcasts on WGN-TV and FOX Sports Net. Sixty-two of the telecasts are over-the-air, while the other 100 are available through cable systems.

Nine of the 99 Sox games televised by FSN will be carried on FOX Sports Net Plus (except in the Chicago ADI where the games will appear on CLTV) due to conflicts with telecasts of the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks or Chicago Cubs. The nine games are: April 5 at Kansas City, April 8 at Detroit, April 24 at Cleveland, May 15 vs. Texas, June 5 vs. Kansas City, June 7 vs. Montreal, July 17 at Kansas City, August 21 vs. Minnesota and September 18 vs. Kansas City.

WCIU-TV will televise the first of its 25 White Sox contests on Tuesday, April 9 at Detroit (6:05 p.m.).

The first game of the crosstown series against the Chicago Cubs at Comiskey Park on June 28 will be televised by FSN (1:05 p.m.). FOX will air the middle game as part of its Saturday national schedule (12:15 p.m.), and WGN-TV will carry the series finale on Sunday, June 30 (1:05 p.m.). When the Sox travel to Wrigley Field June 14-16, FOX will broadcast the Saturday game nationally, with Friday and Sunday's telecasts being local Cubs broadcasts.

In addition to the Sox/Cubs games on June 15 and June 29, the White Sox also will appear on FOX's National Saturday telecast on June 1 at Cleveland, July 6 vs. Cleveland, August 10 vs. Seattle, September 7 vs. Cleveland and September 14 at New York. FOX and ESPN may pick up additional games after the All-Star Break.
