EXPOS GET THEIR ENGLISH TV DEAL WITH TSN; BULLS RADIO
Published April 19, 1995
TSN and the Expos have finally agreed to a new, one-year contract calling for at least 25 games to be telecast by the cable network. According to TSN President Jim Thompson, there will be more games telecast if they can fit them into the schedule and if the Blue Jays agree to increase the limit on the number of Expos games permitted into the Toronto market. The limit now is 25. The Expos will also appear 25 times on French TV (TORONTO STAR, 4/19). NO BULL: The Bulls will switch radio stations, signing a 5-year deal with WMVP Radio beginning in '96-97. After five years on WMAQ, the Bulls join the White Sox and Blackhawks on the 24-hour sports station (USA TODAY, 4/19).
