WPT Enterprises and Fox Sports Net (FSN) announced that the World Poker Tour (WPT) Season VII television schedule has found a home on FSN.

“FSN is pleased to be the new home of the WPT, the foremost brand in televised poker,” said George Greenberg, FSN Executive Vice President of Programming and Production. “This season promises the biggest names, the highest stakes and the most drama and we are very excited to watch all the action unfold.”
Season VII’s new one-hour, two-part format continues to provide sports-style analysis and high-stakes hands from WPT’s world-renowned tournaments. Season VII also gives viewers a front-row seat to watch poker history, anticipating such milestones as the $400 million mark for prize money awarded and the 100th WPT Poker-Made Millionaire crowned. Fans will also see many familiar faces back at the final table, including WPT Season IV Player of the Year Gavin Smith, Mike “The Mouth” Matusow and David “the Dragon” Pham.

Hosts Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten return to call the action, while a new face—WPT Live Updates Hostess Amanda Leatherman—conducts sideline interviews.
WPT will launch a channel finder on www.WorldPokerTour.com, giving fans easy access to the full World Poker Tour schedule on FSN, including local show times and channels.
