BREWERS PLEDGE THEIR SUPPORT TO PUBLIC BROADCASTING
Published September 13, 1995
Officials from the Brewers were on Capitol Hill last week "in support of public broadcasting," according to the current issue of BROADCASTING & CABLE. Sources say that the team wants out of its current TV rights deal with WVTV so that they can switch to the local public broadcasting station. B&C reports, "The Brewers were asking members of Congress to back a change in public broadcasting rules allowing advertising so that PBS affiliate WMVS there could carry the games" (BROADCASTING & CABLE, 9/11 issue).
