WILL BLAZERS' BROADCAST PARTNER SPIN THE WHEEL AGAIN?
Published February 13, 1995
In Portland, Jeff Baker writes that the Blazers "are losing television viewers as they continue to lose games." Ratings on KGW have dropped 10% from last season and have fallen "from the heights they hit three years ago" when the Balzers went to the finals. In fact, the Blazers have lost to "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" in three of the last four head-to-head meetings. The three-year contract between the team and KGW expires at the end of this season and "with ratings down, the win-loss record down, and interest in the Blazers way down, a vital part of the Blazers' business empire appears to be in trouble." However, KGW GM Dennis Williamson is hopeful: "Our relationship is pretty solid. I would hope we think of ourselves as valuable clients to each other" (Portland OREGONIAN, 2/10).
