Over 75 million homes will be able to watch this year's Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) when it airs on NBC Sports Network, Sunday, November 11. Considered the world championship of bass fishing, the TTBC event was held in Conroe September 28-30 and featured three day days of country music and a BBQ Cook-Off Championship where thousands of free tickets were available to families and fans. P> "Being able to air on NBC Sports Network is a great showcase for the world's top anglers," Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur said. "Sharing TTBC with such a large number of people is exciting, and it provides Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's conservation and education efforts with a broader audience."

As the broadcast partner of TTBC, NBC Sports Network will air the championship in an hour-long broadcast. The debut will air on November 11, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. CST, and there will be one re-air, on November 15, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. CST.

Those who tune into the broadcast will watch 50 of the world's best anglers compete for the TTBC title. The field includes representatives from the Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series, the Walmart FLW Tour and the Bassmaster Elite Series, making it the only event to bring anglers from all the major tours to compete for one title.
