CBC Won't Broadcast Cup Final In 3D After Net Becomes Downbeat On Medium
Published May 20, 2011
MORE THAN WAS INTENDED: In Toronto, Sarah Millar notes a woman "flashed her breasts" during Wednesday's Game Two of the Sharks-Canucks Western Conference Finals, and the CBC "broadcast everything ... on its 'Hockey Night in Canada' telecast, which airs the game live, without a delay." Canucks Sports & Entertainment Coordinator of Media Relations & Publications Jen Rollins Thursday in an e-mail said the fan was "evicted from the game without incident." Rollins: "We are following up with her today to help ensure incidents of this nature don't happen again." Versus VP/Communications Meier Raivich noted that his net "did not broadcast the flashing" (TORONTO STAR, 5/20). CBC Head of Media Relations Jeff Keay said that the footage "was picked up by an in-house camera that the broadcaster doesn't control." Keay added that the net has "'no plans at this time' to institute a tape delay to prevent similar images hitting the airwaves in future" (VANCOUVER SUN, 5/20).
DAN THE MAN: The GLOBE & MAIL's Bruce Dowbiggin reported NBC is "bringing back Dan Patrick to host Games 5-7 of the Stanley Cup final." However, the net is "not bringing back" analyst Jeremy Roenick (GLOBESPORTS.com, 5/18).
