TURNER EXEC SPEAKS ON THE FUTURE OF THE BRAVES ON TBS
Published January 25, 1996
The Braves "probably will be severed from their national audience" on TBS in '97, according to TBS President William Burke. Burke told Michael Starr of the N.Y. POST that if the Time-Warner-TBS merger is approved, TBS will lose its superstation status, and with it Braves cable rights. MLB "has indicated it would then air Braves telecasts on ESPN." Burke: "As we move into this new status, we have to renegotiate with Major League Baseball, and those conversations are on-going. [MLB] seems to be in the mindset that they're not going to want the Braves as a TBS Superstation team. But none of this will happen before the next season is over" (N.Y. POST, 1/25).
