How to watch FOX 2 News at 5 and 6 Thursday night

For television viewers who watch FOX 2 News via satellite, cable, or antenna – when they turn on FOX 2 on Thursday night for the news at 5 and 6 p.m., they won't see Roop Raj and Taryn Asher. Instead, sports will be on. So if you're looking for the news you need to know – here's how you can still watch.

Thursday is a busy day in the sports world – especially on FOX 2. Starting at 2 p.m. is coverage of the UEFA European Championship tournament game between Spain and Italy. For soccer fans – this is going to be a good one to watch as this is a match up between two of the top three teams in the UEFA.

After that game ends, FOX Sports comes back to the U.S. for a game that honors the Negro Leagues as the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals play in the first MLB game at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Alabama. The MLB tribute to the Negro Leagues will honor Willie Mays – who passed away this week. The field is also where Mays played in the Negro Leagues when he was on the Birmingham Barons.
