WCIV, MyTV Charleston to broadcast RiverDogs Sunday home games in 2018

RiverDogs on MyTV Charleston

We wholeheartedly endorse visiting The Joe as often as you can, but if you can't make it to the ballpark for the RiverDogs on Sundays this season, WCIV will have you covered.

Ten RiverDogs Sunday home games in 2018 will be broadcast live on MyTV Charleston, thanks to a new partnership with the RiverDogs and Sinclair Broadcast Group.

MyTV Charleston, part of the ABC News 4 family, can be found at Channel 36 over the air and on satellite, and on Channel 13 on cable in the Charleston area.

Each televised game will be a Holy City Sunday at The Joe, when the RiverDogs, a Class A affiliate of the New York Yankees, wear their alternate pinstripe uniforms while celebrating the city of Charleston’s famous moniker.

The games will be simulcast on RiverDogs' radio affiliate WTMA 1250 AM. WCIV's sports director Scott Eisberg will be joining RiverDogs' play-by-play announcer Matt Dean to provide color analysis.

Eisberg is the National Sports Media Association’s South Carolina Sportscaster of the Year for 2017, and has covered sports in the Palmetto State for over a decade.

“WCIV is proud to partner with the Charleston RiverDogs and broadcast ten of their games for the 2018 season,” said WCIV-TV General Manager Mary Margaret Nelms. “We are thrilled for the entire Charleston market to be able watch one of the most popular baseball organizations in the U.S. This collaboration further strengthens WCIV-My TV Charleston as Charleston’s home for local and regional sports.”

The RiverDogs’ first Sunday broadcast is April 14, when the RiverDogs take on the Kannapolis Intimidators, the Class-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. First pitch is slated for 5 p.m.
