New York, NY (October 16, 2019) – With the NBA regular season set to tip-off, MSG Networks (NYSE: MSGN) today announced the upcoming return of its weeknight talk show, now titled the “MSG 150 Final,” which first aired this past summer.

The first episode will air at 11:30pm on Wednesday, October 23rd after the Knicks take on the San Antonio Spurs to open the season.
The show debuted as the “MSG 150” this past summer and provided viewers with two-and-a-half-hours of nightly coverage on the New York sports scene during the recent NBA and NHL offseasons. The new half-hour version of the show will again feature expert analysis, opinions and engaging conversation around all of New York’s teams and an entertaining look into the latest news and stories from around the sports world.
Bill Pidto will return as host each night, alongside Knicks analyst Alan Hahn and a mix of MSG Networks talent that includes basketball analyst Monica McNutt, sports anchor and reporter Camron Smith, Knicks analyst Wally Szczerbiak, sports broadcaster Julianne Vianni and former Knick John Wallace. The show will also include interviews with various coaches, athletes and television personalities.
The “MSG 150 Final” is scheduled to air on weeknights during the season, but fans can also tune in for a special, weekend edition of the show on Saturday, October 26th after the Knicks home opener versus the Boston Celtics.
All 50 episodes this season will also be available on MSG GO, MSG Networks’ live streaming and video on demand platform for smartphones, tablets and computers.
