World Poker Tour Announces Expanded TV Coverage In 2012

If you enjoy watching poker as much as you like playing it, then Fox Sports Net has some good news for you. They'll be extending their television coverage of Season X when the show returns in February. This expansion comes after the increased success of Season IX, which saw a 30% rise in audience share compared to previous seasons.

The new season will premiere on February 12 at 8pm and 11pm local time on the network. To provide a better look at the events, Season X will see each tournament broken into three separate episodes. That means the total number of programs this season is going to be 37 – 11 more than last season’s coverage.

“The steadfast effort put into revamping the World Poker Tour last season was rewarded with resounding fan and viewer support,” said WPT President Adam Pliska in a statement. “For Season X we’re giving our audience even more reason to tune in each week.

For those wondering if anything was going to chance behind the mic, worry not: Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten will once again take on commentary duties for Season X of the WPT and they will be joined by anchor Kimberly Lansing, new Raw Deal analyst Tony Dunst and the Royal Flush Girls from the sidelines.
