GRIZZLIES MAKE DECISION ON TV/RADIO RIGHTS FOR NEXT SEASON
Published April 26, 1995
The expansion Grizzlies are expected to make an announcement on their TV and radio rights within the next ten days, according to Gary Kingston in this morning's VANCOUVER SUN. Kingston reports that BCTV "is expected" to be the team's TV carrier, while radio rights are apparently headed to CKNW, the "city's top-rated station" and current rights holder for the Canucks and CFL B.C. Lions. There is "widespread speculation" the radio rights will go to CKNW's FM arm, "because of potential date conflicts with hockey" (VANCOUVER SUN, 4/26).
