PHILLIES TV SPONSORS GETTING RESTLESS?
Published February 17, 1995
TV sponsors for the Phillies are "getting restless -- and they might be in line for rebates," according to this morning's PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. Phillies VP/Marketing Dennis Mannion said no sponsors have pulled out, but "we have quite a few in a sit- and-wait pattern. We weren't naive. We knew it would come down to this." WPHL-TV GM Randy Smith said his stations are working with each Phillies sponsor to sort our any problems that "might arise because of decreased ratings" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 2/17).
