NFL LOOKS TO GO PRIME-TIME WITH ONE CONFERENCE TITLE GAME
Published January 5, 1995
The NFL and Fox and NBC, the networks in charge of the January 15 conference championship games, are discussing the possibility of moving either the NFC or AFC Championship games to a prime-time slot if two West Coast teams are playing host to both Sunday games. By moving a game to prime-time the NFL would avoid a 10:00pm PST start, as originally scheduled. NFL VP of Broadcasting Val Pinchbeck: "We're confident we'll work out a Sunday prime-time game." The "attractiveness" of a possible Cowboys-49ers matchup in the NFC Championship makes it a likely candidate to be moved if both teams should win this weekend (Mike Fisher, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 1/5).
