FOX SPORTS READY TO BLAST IN DETROIT ROCK CITY
Published September 17, 1997
Fox Sports Detroit (FSD) made its official launch at 6:00am today, according to Steve Crowe of the DETROIT FREE PRESS. Fox Sports Net Senior VP Tim Krass said that only Detroit's Media One cable customers "were in danger of not getting" FSD in time for tonight's Red Wings-Penguins exhibition game. Crowe: "But that's a considerable segment -- about 400,000 homes in the metro area." Krass said talks with Media One are ongoing. Comcast, another "major local cable company," agreed to terms for carriage on Monday. Crowe adds that "it will be a while before" FSD has a local on-air presence beyond games (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 9/17).
