TBS SAYS 60% OF BRAVES TELECASTS ARE SOLD
Published April 7, 1995
Turner Sports President Harvey Schiller said that TBS has sold about 60% of its available advertising on Braves broadcasts. Schiller: "We're in a very strong position. We're actually selling the air time at higher rates than last year. ... It's nonsense that there's been irrevocable damage. It's a public relations problem but not a problem like the Black Sox scandal of 1919 when people lost faith in the game" (Henry Unger, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/7).
