Kansas City (May 31, 2012) – Summer has arrived in Kansas City, and Time Warner Cable Metro Sports today announced several exciting new additions to its primetime lineup.
 
The Emmy Award-winning show “Braggin’ Rights,” a trivia competition featuring Metro Sports personalities competing against area businesses and organizations, will return with new episodes each Monday at 7 p.m.
 
On Tuesdays, new episodes of “Hometown Heroes” will premiere at 7 p.m. Hosted by Metro Sports anchor Dave Stewart, “Hometown Heroes” features sit-down interviews that chronicle the careers of legendary local sports figures. Bill Self, Tom Watson and Bill Snyder are a few of the area sports legends that will be featured on the show this summer.
 
Summer is a great time to be outside, and each Wednesday at 7 p.m. “Metro Golf with Leif Lisec” will highlight different area golf courses and provide golf tips to viewers. The show will also debut a new weekly feature this season, with former Royals players Frank White, Willie Wilson, Al Fitzmorris and others taking part in a golf skills competition.
 
Thursday’s primetime schedule will allow Royals fans to get a sneak-peak at the team’s future stars, as Metro Sports will air seven Omaha Storm Chasers games this summer.

The Storm Chasers games will start at 7 p.m. on Thursdays, and Metro Sports will also air a pregame show from 6:30 – 7 p.m. with Chasers broadcaster Mark Nasser and former Kansas City Royals pitcher Al Fitzmorris providing the play-by-play and analysis respectively.
 
Racing fans will love Friday’s primetime schedule. “The Racin’ Boys” will bring their high-profile Sports Radio 810 program to Metro Sports each Friday from 6:30 – 7 p.m. The show will highlight local and national racing news and events. In addition, Metro Sports will also air the weekly races from area track Lakeside Speedway live each Friday at 7 p.m.
