The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) and ESPN announced today the Denny’s PBA Tour’s 2007 Lumber Liquidators Championship will air as a special two-hour primetime telecast from 8-10 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 9 on ESPN.
“We’re ecstatic about the opportunity to showcase our sport and our stars to a primetime audience,” said PBA Commissioner and CEO Fred Schreyer. “We already have a great following on ESPN every Sunday afternoon, and we’re confident this special two-hour primetime show will help attract even more viewers to our telecasts.”
The 2007 Lumber Liquidators Championship takes place Dec. 5-9 at AMF Country Club Lanes in Baltimore, Md. Last season’s Denny’s PBA Tour event in Baltimore — the 2006 Beltway Classic — saw rising star Sean Rash upset PBA Hall-of-Famer Parker Bohn III for his second career title.
In addition to the primetime telecast, the PBA will also be on the air on the 9th in its regular 1:00 p.m. time slot with an encore viewing of one of its top events from the first half of the season.
The first live telecast of the season takes place this Sunday, Oct. 28, as the 2007 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Masters will be aired live from the Milwaukee Brewers Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wis., at 1 p.m. ET.
