NO-REPLACEMENT POLICY TO DRIVE ASTROS' '96 RADIO DECISION?
Published March 6, 1995
According to Terry Blount of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE, KILT-AM may be making a run at acquiring the Astros radio rights in '96. When the Astros flagship station KPRC-AM "balked at carrying" Astros' spring games with replacements, KILT "jumped at the chance." KILT GM Dickie Rosenfeld: "That's the reason I did it. We are definitely going to pursue becoming the Astros' flagship station in '96" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/3)....Paxson Communications Corp. will purchase WFTL-AM of Ft. Lauderdale allowing Paxson to expand its radio broadcast of Heat games into Broward and Palm Beach counties (MIAMI HERALD, 3/4).
