Shaw, MTS Agree To Carry TSN Jets Channel In Time For NHL Season
Published September 20, 2011
ON THE AIR: The Sabres yesterday announced a multiyear extension of their broadcast agreement with Entercom that will keep WGR-AM as the Sabres' flagship station in the Buffalo radio market. The deal will allow WGR to continue simulcasting all Sabres games and serving as the home for weekly segments featuring the team's front office staff. WGR has carried Sabres games since '05, and will continue to use the broadcast team of Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neale (Sabres). Meanwhile, the Sabres' TV crew this season will add NHL Network "On The Fly" host Brian Duff as "the game-night host for the broadcasts without Rick Jeanneret" (BUFFALONEWS.com, 9/20).
