Keeping Up with Changes on the Dial
Repsher, Steve, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)
The past 12 months have been quite the busy ones in the world of sports television. With so many networks armed with so much money going after the same entities, one needs a scorecard to keep track of what's on where - and when.
Let's run down who and what have moved where:
OLD FACES, OLD PLACES
* ESPN avoided major egg on its face by keeping regular-season baseball. Had the network failed to hang on to one of its top two franchises, who knows how it would have filled those hours?
* WBAL Radio (AM-1090) landed a new deal this week to keep the Baltimore Orioles. That also should mean the continuance of games on WTOP (AM-1500).
