While the opponents were known, today the Buccaneers released the dates and times for their four preseason contests.
The Buccaneers 2012 preseason schedule was finalized and released today. Tampa Bay will play three Friday nights games, and close the preseason on the road in Washington against the Redskins on a Wednesday night.
The Buccaneers' 2012 preseason will begin on August 10 at Miami and conclude on August 29 at Washington. In between, the team will play a pair of home games against Tennessee (August 17) and New England (August 24).
Each of those first three preseason contests falls on a Friday evening, with the finale taking place on the final Wednesday in August. All four games have scheduled kickoff times of 7:30 p.m. ET. In addition, all four will be televised locally on WTSP-TV Channel 10 News.
The games will remain on WTSP-TV Channel 10 News for a second consecutive year. WTSP will produce all four August with Chris Myers once again in the broadcast booth. Myers is entering his ninth season as Tampa Bay's preseason play-by-play man and will be joined for a fourth year by former Buccaneer John Lynch. Dave Wirth, who serves as WTSP’s main sports anchor, will be the sideline analyst once again.
For the ninth year, Clear Channel’s US 103.5 FM and 620 WDAE AM will serve as the flagship stations for the Buccaneers Radio Network and will broadcast all Buccaneers games, including the preseason. Gene Deckerhoff will handle the play-by-play duties for the 24th straight season and Dave Moore will enter his sixth season as an analyst. T.J. Rives enters his seventh season as Tampa Bay’s sideline reporter.
