Pittsburgh’s “Fox Sports” WBGG (970) has been added to the network of stations carrying broadcasts of the minor-league Altoona Curve.

A double-A farm team of the Pirates, the Curve will also be heard on Altoona’s WVAM (1430); WHUN (1150) in Huntingdon; WKGE (850) in Johnstown; WWGE (1400) in Loretto; and WTRN (1340) in Tyrone.

WBGG has committed to carrying at least 55 games during the 2009 season.

The team says the arrangement makes the Curve one of the few double-A affiliates to have a full-power broadcast outlet in the hometown of its parent organization.
