THE DEUCE TO LAUNCH "NHL 2NIGHT"
Published January 31, 1995
ESPN2 will launch "NHL 2Night", a 30-minute hockey broadcast that will run five nights a week at 11:30pm. The show will appear every night except Sunday and Monday, or when ESPN2 is showing a live event. ESPN Managing Editor Bob Eaton said the show will be modeled off "Baseball Tonight": "I think we will be heavier on the highlights but we'll certainly do issue stories. ... We've made a network that has tried to cater to the hockey audience. This is the next logical step" (Joe Lapointe, N.Y. TIMES, 1/31).
