NEW SPORTS CHANNEL IN CANADA TO GO REGIONAL
Published December 12, 1994
"How spooked is TSN by CTV's plans to start up a rival Canadian sports channel (with regional programming)?," asks William Houston in Toronto. "Insiders say TSN is particularly concerned about the huge B.C. lower mainland market and the fact that TSN prime time on the West Coast consists of canned progamming from Toronto." TSN is seriously considering renting studio space in Vancouver to do their 11:00pm (ET) sports news show. CTV's proposed regional channel, yet to be approved by the government, would provide local programming in four regions of Canada (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/10). LABATT EXPANDING? John Labatt Ltd., parent company of TSN, would like to "bolster its broadcast business but it has been a tough slog to find a takeover candidate," according to Labatt President George Taylor. Instead, Labatt is expanding its broadcast and related production holdings internally (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/10).
