As the Cleveland Cavaliers gear up for the 2010-11 season, FOX Sports Ohio helps get fans ready too by featuring special Cavs programming throughout the month of October, or “Tip-tober,” presented by Continental Airlines. In the return of Tip-tober, FOX Sports Ohio features various programs, including three Cavaliers Showcase replays, two Cavaliers Roundtables, a Cavs preseason game, Cavaliers Live: Season Preview, and Access Cavaliers.
Ohio’s leading regional sports network will telecast the Cavs’ preseason game on Tuesday, October 19 when the Cavs take on the Philadelphia 76ers at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
FOX Sports Ohio is also delighted to air three Cavaliers Showcase replays. Each replay will be called by Cavaliers Hall of Fame play-by-play man Joe Tait, who is in his last year as the Voice of the Cavaliers. These games did not originally feature Tait on the telecast, so they are never-before-seen versions of the games.
Two Cavaliers Roundtables will additionally air during Tip-tober, where Cavaliers Broadcaster Jeff Phelps sits down with Cavs players to talk Cavs basketball in two 30-minute programs. Both Roundtables will replay throughout the rest of the month. To find out what players will be in each roundtable, click here.
FOX Sports Ohio further prepares for the start of the Cavs season with a preview show featuring highlights from last season, analysis of this off season preparation and projections of the upcoming season. Premiering Monday, October 18 at 7:30pm, Cavaliers Live: Season Preview is a half hour program hosted by Phelps with visits by Austin Carr, Fred McLeod and Campy Russell, and it will replay throughout the rest of the month.
FOX Sports Ohio rounds out its Tip-tober programming with Access Cavaliers, the show where fans get total behind-the-scenes access they can’t get anywhere else. This 30-minute Cavaliers-produced show will air every Friday at 2:30pm with replays each week.
