The deal the station is scheduled to announce Wednesday is for three years, according to the Hearst-owned station, and will make WBAL the Baltimore partner for all ESPN "Monday Night Football" games involving the Ravens during that time.
WBAL will also have three other prime-time games this fall, thanks to being Baltimore's affiliate for NBC, which produces "Sunday Night Football," the highest-rated prime-time series on network TV.
"This is an exciting development that further cements our partnership with one of the most powerful brands in Maryland…The Baltimore Ravens!" Dan Joerres, WBAL's general manager, said in an email to The Sun.
WJZ, the CBS-owned and -operated station, will continue to be the primary home of the Ravens during the regular season by nature of the network holding rights to games in the Ravens' division. Most of those contests air Sunday afternoons.
