BLAZING THE SAME TRAIL: In Portland, Suzanne Stevens reported the Trail Blazers have renewed their local broadcast deal with KGW-NBC “for the next three seasons.” The station can air a “minimum of 16 regular season games.” The actual number “is contingent upon the NBA’s national broadcast schedule.” KGW has been the team's flagship station since the ’92-93 season (BIZJOURNALS.com, 7/31).
