The Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and ESPN have extended their partnership for another six years, paving the way for WNBA games to be televised on ABC, ESPN, and ESPN2 through 2022.
The new agreement, which extends the WNBA’s television relationship with ESPN to 26 years, coincides with the first-ever primetime telecast of the WNBA Draft presented by State Farm on Monday, April 15 at 8 p.m. ET. Up to 30 live games will be televised on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 each season, including exclusive telecasts of the WNBA Finals presented by Boost Mobile. (Source: WNBA)
