The WNBA has continued to grow throughout the years and 2023 will be no exception. ESPN and ABC are set to air 25 regular season games in the WNBA’s 27th season.
With league viewership up 16 percent in 2022, it’s the perfect time for ABC and ESPN to showcase the WNBA. 2022 marked the most viewed season for the league’s television partners in the past 14 years.
In a new addition to the coverage, select broadcasts will feature a “WNBA countdown” pregame show which will be similar to the one that the NBA features. This is a great step for the promotion of the WNBA.
