POPULARITY CONTEST: WFLX-Fox in West Palm Beach will televise Broncos-Vikings at 1:00pm ET Sunday. The matchup “ordinarily would not be a big draw on television, but with Tebow quarterbacking the suddenly streaking Broncos, there should be plenty of interest.” The game “will go head-to-head with the Dolphins' home game against Oakland,” which is scheduled to be televised by CBS, “assuming the Dolphins sell (or give away) enough tickets to avoid a local blackout” (PALMBEACHPOST.com, 11/29).
WINTER BASEBALL COVERAGE: ESPN will cover the '11 MLB Winter Meetings with a daily set of programs from Monday through Thursday, including on-site talent including Karl Ravech, Steve Berthiaume, John Kruk and Chris Singleton.
