CANUCKS AND GRIZZLIES MOVING TO VANCOUVER TV NEXT SEASON
Published April 9, 1998
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).
