WOULD-BE PIRATES OWNER SAYS HE WILL NOT START SUPERSTATION
Published January 18, 1995
MLB Owners may give Adelphia Communications Chair John Rigas "preliminary approval sometime this week to begin negotiating a sales price for the Pirates. Rigas, the city's preferred buyer, has until January 29 to conclude a deal with the team's owners. If he fails, the Pirates' owners can sell the team to anyone, including an investor who could move the team to another city. Rigas is expected to get the approval after flying to Chicago last Friday to meet with White Sox Owner Jerry Reinsdorf. At the meeting, Rigas quelled owners' fears that he would attempt to build a TV "superstation," a la TBS, WWOR or WGN, if he bought the Pirates (Steve Halvonik, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 1/17).
