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.
(um, I think it was announced Tuesday here in Alaska considering Wednesday is about an hour and a half from now. )

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.
