BULLETS AND CAPS TAB NEW STATION FOR LOCAL BROADCASTS
Published June 14, 1995
Susan O'Malley, president of the Bullets and Capitol Region Sports Marketing, announced an agreement yesterday for WFTY-TV to broadcast Bullets and Capitals games beginning in '95-96. WFTY will replace WDCA-TV as the teams' broadcast outlet. In the initial year, WFTY will carry a minimum of 30 Bullets games and 20 Capitals games. Home Team Sports, the teams' cable carrier, will produce the games for cable and broadcast. WFTY VP & GM Michael Nurse: "WFTY feels that the strong addition of Bullets and Capitals, along with our existing line-up of Baltimore Orioles and ACC basketball games, will truly position WFTY as Washington's sports station" (Capitol Sports). No Baltimore affiliate was announced, but Milton Kent urges local cable operators to pick up WFTY (Baltimore SUN, 6/14). WFTY-TV is Washington's WB Network affiliate (THE DAILY).
