CANUCKS AND GRIZZLIES MOVING TO VANCOUVER TV NEXT SEASON

          After more than 20 years of association with British
     Columbia Television [BCTV], "the Canucks will move their
     regional telecasts" to Vancouver TV [VTV], a Baton
     Broadcasting station launched last fall, according to Grant
     Kerr of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL.  VTV will telecast 27-30
     Canucks games in '98-99, along with 24 Grizzlies games. 
     Financial details of the two-year deal, plus an option year,
     were not disclosed.  BCTV paid an estimated C$1.7M to
     broadcast the Canucks this season, and reports in Vancouver
     put VTV's bid at C$2.7M a year.  BCTV's sister station,
     CHEK-TV, handled Grizzlies games.  Details of their new
     agreement were not available (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 4/9).
