DOES BERNSTEIN'S CBS DEAL GIVE ESPN BETTER NFL COVERAGE?
Published June 30, 1998
ESPN's decision to let reporter Bonnie Bernstein get out of her contract to sign with CBS has enabled the network to "obtain more access for its reporters on NFL games covered by CBS," according to Leonard Shapiro of the WASHINGTON POST. Sources say that CBS has "agreed to allow ESPN to broadcast live from NFL stadiums for an additional 30 minutes on game days" as part of the deal to land Bernstein. Under NFL rules, no live broadcasts are allowed an hour before kickoff expect on the net that owns the rights to that game. ESPN and CBS spokespeople "declined comment on Bernstein's contract" (WASHINGTON POST, 6/30).
