That's what this Business Courier article from April says. And this is current, not in the future.


Thatís about double the Redsí current $30 million a year deal with Fox Sports Ohio, according to SportsBusiness Journal, a Business Courier sister publication.

Not to my knowledge. Thought they were in the $14-16MM range?

Fangraphs had a recent article talking about the media deals teams have. The writer quoted this study. About two weeks before this article came out John fay said in the Enquirer that the Reds were getting what was "believed to be $10M" a year.

I have no idea why the two numbers are so far apart, but I imagine that Fay is a lot closer to reality than this one considering when the deal was signed.
