TNT'S FOOTBALL PACKAGE TO UNDERGO SOME CHANGES
Published June 1, 1995
Turner Sports President Harvey Schiller and Exec Producer Mike Pearl have turned their attention to TNT's NFL coverage, and "change is in the air," according to Prentis Rogers of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. The half-hour pregame show for TNT's Sunday night games -- formerly known as "The Stadium Show" -- will move to an hour and compete with ESPN's "NFL PrimeTime." In addition, analysts Bob Neal and Lawrence Taylor won't be returning, with other possible changes in the lineup. Prentis reports, "Obviously these are nervous times for all of those involved in TNT's coverage because evaluations are being made across the board." TNT will also debut the continuous clock/score graphic (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/1). The NFL has shifted the start of late Sunday afternoon games from 4:01 to 4:05pm EDT to "allow more viewers to catch the end of 1pm games that run long" (Barry Jackson, MIAMI HERALD, 5/31).
