ARIZONA REVIEWER GIVES HIGH MARKS TO ESPN'S DRAFT COVERAGE
Published November 19, 1997
ESPN, which had two sets on the floor of the Phoenix Civic Plaza, "scored heavily" during yesterday's MLB Expansion Draft, according to Jim Gintonio of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. Gintonio: "Tuesday's major league expansion draft was a slick and professional job, just what you would expect." Gintonio: "A big part of [ESPN's] success comes from its light-hearted approach. So why doesn't someone tell Peter Gammons to lighten up a bit? ... There's no doubting his knowledge, but the guy needs to act like he's having a little bit of fun." Gintonio also credits Fox Sports Arizona, which focused on the D'Backs, with maintaining "a good flow" during its coverage (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 11/19).
