MSG-Red Bull TV Schedule Announced
MSG Networks and the New York Red Bulls have unveiled the official telecast schedule for the 2018 season. MSG Networks will televise 20 of the Red Bulls' 34 regular season matches.
MSG Networks will telecast the Red Bulls first match of the season on Saturday, March 10 against the Portland Timbers at Red Bull Arena.
All MSG Networks New York Red Bull games, in addition to pre- and postgame coverage, will be available on MSG GO, MSG Networks' live streaming and video on demand platform for smartphones, tablets and computers.
MSG Networks, which has been the regional television home of the Red Bulls (previously the MetroStars) since 1996, will telecast pregame and postgame coverage for all home games the network televises, and pregame shows for all away games it covers. Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Steve Cangialosi returns for his 11th season as the team's play-by-play announcer, and US Soccer legend and former Olympic goalkeeper Shep Messing returns for his 18th season as game analyst.
Michelle Gingras joins MSG Networks as host and sideline reporter for Red Bulls telecasts. Some of Gingras' previous stops include Yahoo Sports, One Up Sports, the New Jersey Devils and most recently BeIN Sports for the 2017 college football season.
"I'm so excited to join the MSG Networks family, its truly an honor to work at a network with such an incredible history and among such talented broadcasters," said Gingras. "The opportunity to work with the New York Red Bulls, a cornerstone MLS franchise, as well as Shep Messing and Steve Cangialosi is second-to-none and is a dream come true for me. I can't wait to get started."
Red Bulls games on MSG Networks are also available in Spanish via SAP with Ernesto Motta calling the action.
