Tempe — Beginning with the Arizona Cardinals’ preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday, Aug. 11, all four preseason games can be seen locally on NBC, the team announced Thursday afternoon.
The Cardinals Broadcast Network will produce three Cardinals preseason games (Aug. 11 vs. L.A. Chargers; Aug. 17 at New Orleans; Aug. 30 vs. Denver), while Arizona will appear in a nationally-televised Sunday Night Football game on NBC at Dallas on Sunday, Aug. 26, at 5 p.m.
The Cardinals regular radio team of Dave Pasch (play-by-play) and Ron Wolfley (analyst) will be joined by anchor Paul Gerke (sideline reporter) to call the action. Cardinals’ reporter Paul Calvisi will join Wolfley and Gerke for the Denver broadcast on Aug. 30.
All three games produced by the Cardinals will be preceded by a half-hour pregame show hosted by Gerke.
