NUGGETS GAMES COULD LAND ON BROADCAST KWGN-TV AFTER ALL
Published September 26, 1997
Some Nuggets games this season "still could be broadcast on KWGN," because talks between the station and Fox Sports Rocky Mountain (FSRM) have reopened, sources tell Vicki Michaelis of the DENVER POST. KWGN, the Nuggets' home for all but two of the past 20 years, "might carry up to 15 games, alleviating some concern that the Nuggets would be aired only on cable this season." FSRM's talks with KWGN "initially broke off because KWGN has asked for significantly higher air-time fees" for Nuggets broadcasts this season. Michaelis adds that while "it's unlikely KWGN is lowering its demands," FSRM "is believed to be willing now to pay the higher price" (DENVER POST, 9/26).
