BOSTON'S CHANNEL 38 MAY NOT SHOW OFF THEIR REPLACEMENT SOX
Published March 15, 1995
In Boston, Paramount-owned WSBK (Channel 38) announced they aren't "committed to more sub-Sox tuneups even though four remain on the station's slate." New station GM Stu Tauber said the policy towards airing replacement games has not been decided: "We'll have to talk with the Red Sox in the next few days." Channel 38 is in the last season of a five-year, $79M deal with the Red Sox, and "negotiations figure to be tough anyway" with Paramount's UPN looking to extend its network programming beyond just two nights over the next few years. Another Paramount station, KTXH in Houston, said that Paramount is "discouraging its stations from carrying strikebreakers, citing meager interest and a huge loss of advertising" (Jim Baker, BOSTON HERALD, 3/14).
