CLIPPERS IRKED AT RADIO PARTNER FOR REVELING IN TEAM STREAK
Published March 12, 1999
The Clippers and KXTA-AM are business partners, with the team buying the time for the station to carry its games at a cost of $4,000 per game, according to Larry Stewart of the L.A. TIMES. But the team wasn't "too pleased" with the station's "latest publicity stunt" of having a station employee living atop a billboard, "vowing to stay there until the team won." One Clippers exec: "The whole thing has been fraught with bad taste. And handled very badly from a partnership standpoint." But the Clippers took care of the situation with last night's win (L.A. TIMES, 3/12).
