CBS47 FOX30 named new official stations of the Jacksonville Jaguars

by: Action News Jax Updated:

Brand new Jacksonville Jaguars shows and exclusive game content are coming to CBS47 and FOX30, the new Official Stations of the Jacksonville Jaguars 

The Jaguars and CBS47 and FOX30's multi-year partnership agreement announced Thursday expands fan access to exclusive team coverage across both stations.

Our Action Sports Jax team joins the Jaguars team of current and former players to bring fans more access and more exclusive, comprehensive coverage than any Jags fan has experienced.

This includes three new shows and special coverage of the draft and games.

As the Jaguars official partner, CBS47 and FOX30 will air all non-national preseason games.

This kicks off with a matchup at New England on Aug. 10 on CBS47, a home game against Carolina on Aug. 24 on CBS47 and a contest at Atlanta on Aug. 31 on FOX30. 

Jaguars.com Senior Correspondent Brian Sexton will call the action from the booth alongside former Jaguars QB Mark Brunell during each of the Thursday night games.

CBS47 and FOX30 Action News Jax Sports Director Brent Martineau will serve as sideline reporter, and Anchor Erica Bennett will join the home game broadcast as a field reporter. 

Beginning this fall, three new shows will give fans inside access to the team and put them up-close-and-personal with players, coaches and the game. 

“Jaguars All Access” Presented by Fields Auto Group will be produced in front of a live audience every Monday at 7 p.m. at Mellow Mushroom in Avondale. Analyst Jeff Lageman and Martineau will be joined by a Jaguars player to break down the previous day’s game on CBS47.

“Jags Wired” Presented by EverBank will take fans closer to the game than they have ever been before as they listen in on mic'd up players, sideline audio and locker room speeches. Jags Wired will air every Tuesday at 11:35 p.m. on FOX30 and on jaguars.com and the Jaguars’ official mobile app.

“Jaguars Weekend” will kick off game day coverage beginning at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday this fall on FOX30 and across the Jaguars Media Network.  This 30-minute look inside the week of Jaguars football will offer in-depth analysis, feature stories and a trip inside the film room with head coach Doug Marrone.

CBS47 will kick off its special coverage Thursday, April 27 with the Bud Light Draft Show, a free event presented by PRI Productions for fans to celebrate Round 1 of the NFL Draft.

The Jaguars and CBS47 will air a live show from inside EverBank Field from 7 to 8 p.m. featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes access in Philadelphia and outside the Jaguars draft room in Jacksonville.

The show will air on CBS47, on the world’s largest video boards at EverBank Field, on www.jaguars.com and the Jaguars’ mobile app.  For more details or to register for a free ticket, fans can visit www.jaguars.com/2017draft. 

CBS47 and FOX30 now lead the Jaguars Media Network as the official flagship stations of the team, joining 11 other affiliates in carrying preseason games live to audiences throughout Florida, southern Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. 

During the regular season, WJAX or WFOX will carry the Jaguars’ games through the stations’ affiliations with the CBS and Fox networks. The Jaguars regular season schedule is expected to be announced this week.
