- Scheduled to broadcast the game, subject to change.
- The 2010 All-Star Game marked the first time the annual game would be shown in 3D. Kenny Albert and Mark Grace were the announcers for the 3D broadcast.
- In 2008, Fox went on the air at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time with a special, one hour "red carpet parade" show hosted by Jeanne Zelasko and Chris Rose. Also contributing to the program were reporters Mark Grace, Laura Okmin, and Charissa Thompson. This was followed by play-by-play man Joe Buck presiding over the pregame festivities (e.g. player introductions and the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner") via the public address system.
- The British rights-holder for this game, five (now known as Channel 5) ended its coverage at 6 a.m. BST with the game still in the 12th inning. The network explained that it had a commitment to carry the children's cartoon show The Wiggles that it could not break. The situation is similar to the infamous "Heidi Game" on the U.S. network NBC in 1968.
- The 1990 All-Star Game from Chicago's Wrigley Field was marred by an approximately 68 minute rain delay that started during the top of the 7th inning. In the mean time, CBS aired Rescue 911.
- For CBS' coverage of the 1992 All-Star Game, they introduced Basecam, a lipstick-size camera, inside first base.
- In June 1993, CBS Sports' Lesley Visser suffered a jogging accident in New York's Central Park in which she broke her hip and skidded face-first across the pavement. She required reconstructive plastic surgery on her face and in 2006, she required an artificial hip replacement. She returned to CBS Sports in July 1993 to cover the 1993 Major League Baseball All-Star Game as a pre-game analyst instead of a field reporter due to the accident. In Visser's place in the meantime, came Jim Kaat.
- The 1994 All-Star Game marked NBC's first broadcast of a Major League Baseball game since Game 5 of the 1989 National League Championship Series on October 9. It also marked the inaugural broadcast of "The Baseball Network," which was a short-lived (lasting through the conclusion of the 1995 World Series), revenue-sharing joint venture between NBC, ABC and Major League Baseball. The '94 All-Star game was also broadcast in Spanish on NBC's Secondary Audio Program. Boston Red Sox announcer Hector Martinez and seven time All-Star Tony Perez were the announcers for the occasion.
- For NBC's 1983 All-Star Game coverage, Don Sutton was in New York, periodically tracking pitches with the aid of NBC's "Inside Pitch" technology.
- In 1985, NBC's telecast of the All-Star Game out of the Metrodome in Minnesota was the first program to be broadcast in stereo by a TV network.
- Former President of the United States, Ronald Reagan (who had just left office) served as the color commentator instead of Tom Seaver (Vin Scully's normal NBC broadcasting partner at the time) for the first inning of the 1989 game.
- 1976 - The ABC team of Bob Prince, Bob Uecker and Warner Wolf alternated roles for the broadcast. For the first three innings, Prince did play-by-play with Wolf on color commentary and Uecker doing field interviews. For the middle innings, Uecker worked play-by-play with Prince on color and Wolf doing the interviews. For the final three innings, Wolf worked play-by-play with Uecker on color and Prince doing interviews.

- The 1952 All-Star Game in Philadelphia was the first nationally televised All-Star Game, but it was shortened by rain.
- In 1950, the Mutual Broadcasting System acquired the television broadcast rights to the World Series and All-Star Game for the next six years. Mutual may have been reindulging in TV network dreams or simply taking advantage of a long-standing business relationship; in either case, the broadcast rights were sold to NBC in time for the following season's games at an enormous profit.

- Up until at least, the late 1970s-early 1980s, a majority of the radio announcing crews for the All-Star Game split play-by-play duties, doing either the first 4½ or last 4½ innings.
