The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and WOFL-TV/FOX 35 Orlando announced on Wednesday a new multi-year media rights agreement, via the team’s press release.
The deal, which will broadcast the Bucs preseason games, as well as work throughout the year to create the ultimate viewer experience for the region’s NFL fans, will make the station Central Florida’s official television partner of the Bucs.
Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer, Brian Ford, released a statement about the partnership.
“This new partnership with FOX 35 will provide our fans in the Orlando area with unprecedented coverage of the Buccaneers throughout the year and will play a pivotal role in our continuing efforts to engage the entire Central Florida market. This is an exciting time for our organization and we look forward to working with FOX 35 to bring our fans in the Orlando market closer to our players and coaches than ever before.”
In addition, FOX 35 will air unique team-produced Buccaneers content on a weekly 30-minute show and provide the Buccaneers an increased promotional presence to enhance the franchise’s brand in the Orlando market.
“Since we are the official NFC Licensee in the Orlando DMA, it makes sense to forge an alignment with the designated NFL home team of choice. A preseason partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will complement our regular-season NFL airings for viewers to enjoy year-round,” said WOFL/WRBW Vice President and General Manager Allyson Meyers.
The ultimate goal of the agreement is to expand the Bucs fan base throughout Central Florida.

Are they actually going to air the in season games in Orlando? It’s ridiculous that we end up with games from out of market teams instead of the Bucs.
Could be Gene is getting too old and the Owners are ready to bring in new blood.
Horse, I believe you are referring to Gene Deckerhoff.
He works in radio, not television, which is what this Fox station broadcasts.
I personally enjoy listening to Gene and who can forget his signature call of “It’s Alstot up the gut.”
Even Warren Sapp used to repeat it on the sidelines.
