TRENTON – (Dec. 26, 2012) – The New Jersey Lottery announced that it will begin airing its live evening game draws on CBS-owned television stations, daily, beginning Jan. 1, 2013 at 7:57 pm. The daily drawing will air on CBS-owned stations WLNY-TV 10/55 in New York and The CW Philly 57(WPSG-TV). Viewers are asked to check their local cable listings for channel numbers. Carole Hedinger, Executive Director of the Lottery says, “ Lottery management is always looking for ways to improve the playing experience for its customers. With this in mind, we are excited to bring the live daily evening drawings to television. Recognizing that consumers today access information in a variety of ways, providing a television outlet adds to our already established Internet and mobile broadcast options.” While the evening draw will be aired daily on WLNY and The CW Philly, the midday draw will remain exclusively as a live-streaming video available on the NJLottery.net website and Facebook. Foster Krupa, Marketing Director for the Lottery added, “Bringing the live Lottery drawing to TV responds to players' needs and makes the winning numbers selection even more accessible wherever and however they want.”
The live broadcast will feature the winning number drawings for Pick-3, Pick-4, Jersey Cash 5 and Pick-6 Lotto with a recap display of the winning numbers immediately following for easy viewing. Mega Millions and Powerball drawings will continue to be broadcast on their respective TV stations.
