SHIFT IN BROADCAST CARRIERS IN THE STARS FOR DALLAS HOCKEY
Published May 12, 1995
The Stars will shift their TV home to KDFW and KDFI for next season. The stations, which have a limited marketing agreement, will carry 35 Stars games next year, five more than each of the past two seasons. KDFW becomes a Fox affiliate in July. KTVT and KXTA have carried Stars' games since the team's move to Dallas, but KTVT's July switch to a CBS affiliation would not allow for prime-time Stars programming. Last month, the Mavericks also announced a move to KDFW and KDFI, and the "majority" of Cowboys games will be seen on Fox's KDFW. KDFW GM David Whitaker: "It is our intent to build KDFW and KDFI into sports powerhouses" (Barry Horn, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/11).
