(um, I think it was announced Tuesday here in Alaska considering Wednesday is about an hour and a half from now. )The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race will again have a presence on national television after race organizers signed a deal with the Sportsman Channel.
The agreement, announced Wednesday, makes the Sportsman Channel the official network of the nearly 1,000-mile race from Anchorage to Nome. The race, billed as the world's longest, hasn't had a network deal since 2009.
Very excited about this deal, especially since we get this channel at my house. It will be interesting to see it on TV again... hasn't been since 2004.
