WOMEN'S SPORTS NETWORK TO BEING IN SEPTEMBER
Published November 11, 1994
The Women's Sports Network (WSN) plans to start up in September with 24-hours of live events, news reports and exercise, travel and nutritional programming. They hope to lure cable operators by dividing the money they receive "in subscriber fees with community sports programs for girls and women." Terry Kassel, creator of WSN: "So Cablevision, for example, would have a sponsorship in their name for a women's softball league on Long Island." Kassell added that it is also an opportunity for cable operators to "endear themselves to their communities." Although Liberty Sports has rights to many women's collegiate events, Kassel said WSN will be an outlet for other women sports, including amateur and recreational (Steve Zipay, NEWSDAY, 11/11).
