Dan Patrick Hints of Something Big PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maury Brown   
Monday, 02 July 2007 06:37

Dan PatrickIs Dan Patrick headed to The Price is Right? Or, is it something else?

Last week we reported that Patrick had been contacted by the producers of the game show about auditioning to replace retiring Bob Barker.

Today, Patrick mentioned that he would have an announcement "that bloggers have been talking about."

That could be anything, but with the news last week, interest has been high. Patrick has maintained that even though he was contacted about the position, he won't be taking them up on the offer.

Details to follow when we get word. "Tease" comes to mind.

UPDATE: Patrick, once again, announced that he's turned the Price Is Right gig down.

What do you think? Add your comments here.

Sirius Releases Lower Prices In Attempt to Woo FCC PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 13 June 2007 01:32

XM and SiriusTrying to woo the FCC into allowing the proposed merger of Sirius and XM Satellite Radio, Mel Karmazin, the CEO of Sirius, announced yesterday the prices for a variety of packages, should the companies merge––one of which would be a low cost version. As reported by Variety Daily:

Among the proposed packages is a low-cost option, well below the $12.95 both charge, and a "best of" version that would be more expensive but include all of Sirius, including Howard Stern and the National Football League, and parts of XM's big-ticket programming, including "Oprah and Friends" and Major League Baseball.

"We've had a number of meetings since we announced the deal," Karmazin told Daily Variety. "We hope we can draft an offering that will be something the commissioners will see is in the public interest."

Karmazin also hinted that if the merger goes through, they would be interested in hiring Don Imus

"I've had no conversation with Imus or his people since he left, but I would assume that one of the first phone calls he would make if he came back would be to satellite radio," he said.

Written by Press Release   
Wednesday, 11 April 2007 15:55

Seattle MarinersSeattle Mariners Spanish Audio, presented by FSN Northwest, will distribute the 78 remaining Mariners home games beginning Friday, April 13.  The Spanish-language feed will be distributed via a secondary audio program (SAP) feed on cable systems for all FSN home game telecasts.  It will also be available via the internet and broadcast on Spanish-language radio stations in Seattle and Portland.

Many cable systems have SAP capability.  Subscribers should contact their cable operators to determine if the Spanish feed will be available on their system. The feed will also be streamed live on www.mariners.com

The two radio stations set to carry Mariners Spanish Audio are KDOW AM 1680 (68 of the 78 games) in Seattle and 1230 ESPN Deportes (KSZN AM) in Portland. 

Mark Shuken, Vice President & General Manager of FSN Northwest, said, “We share the team’s goal of making Mariners Baseball available to as many fans as possible in the Pacific Northwest.  By providing the Spanish-language feed, several hundred thousand more fans will be able to enjoy the game coverage in 2007 and future seasons.”

Raúl Sandoval will handle play-by-play with Julio Cruz providing the analysis.  Sandoval is a Seattle area sports broadcaster with nine years of on-air experience.  In the past, he has served as a guest analyst for visiting Spanish radio broadcasts at Safeco Field.  Julio Cruz, a long-time favorite of Seattle fans, was an outstanding second baseman for the Mariners from 1977-83 and still is the Mariners all-time stolen base leader with 290. He returns for his fifth season behind the microphone for Mariners Spanish radio broadcasts.  

Production, engineering and coordination services for the Mariners-FSN Spanish Audio are provided by the KXLY Broadcast Group of Spokane.

WNST and Orioles Dispute Credentialing PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 10 April 2007 06:42

OriolesWNST-AM 1570 radio, and specifically Nestor “Nasty” Aparicio, claimed yesterday that they were denied access to Camden Yards and the Orioles for the upcoming 2007 season.

"Their first home game is hours away and the only communication we've received from the Orioles is that our credential application is 'being reviewed.',” Aparicio said.

The Orioles dispute that claim and say that WNST has been granted access.

WNST was provided the same access they were given last year,” said Greg Barter, director of communications for the Orioles. “The same individuals who were credentialed last year have been credentialed again this year.”

Aparicio was not credentialed last season, and according to the Orioles, did not file a request for one.

Aparicio, the nephew of former Oriole shortstop and Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio, claims that WNST has covered the Orioles since 1992, and are being rebuffed due to his criticism of owner Peter Angelos. Last season, Aparicio organized a mass protest in which somewhere between 2,000 and “several hundred” fans left during a mid-week afternoon game against the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. He has been a critic of Peter Angelos on the air for several years.

"It's just amazing that every single year, when you think it can't get any worse, it does," Aparicio said.

Sirius and XM to Offer Reduced Prices if Merger Proceeds PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 21 March 2007 03:43

Sirius and XM RadioIf the proposed merger of Satellite radio providers Sirius and XM is approved, look for more content a la carte, and tiers of service both higher and lower than the $12.95 per month each company currently charges. As reported by Reuters:

"After the merger, customers may elect to receive fewer channels at a monthly price lower than $12.95; substantially similar programming at the existing $12.95 price; or more channels ... at a modest premium to the cost of one service, and considerably less than the cost of subscribing to both services," Sirius said in a federal filing.

The key will be getting approval of the merger. Both members of congress and the FCC have been cautious in their wording of the proposed merger, citing anti-trust concerns. Sen. Herb Kohl, chairman of the U.S. Senate's antitrust subcommittee, said on Tuesday that the combination may be "a fabulous monopoly" for Sirius and XM, and "a real bad deal for consumers."

XM currently broadcasts MLB games and content. The planned merger between the companies was announced in mid-Feb. of this year

Univision RadioThe Chicago White Sox and Univision Radio’s La Tremenda (WRTO 1200 AM) have extended their agreement to broadcast select home games in Spanish for a third consecutive season in 2007.  There are 38 scheduled Spanish broadcasts of White Sox games for the 2007 season, an increase of seven games from last year.

“We are thrilled about bringing White Sox baseball to our Spanish-speaking fans again in 2007,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox vice president and chief marketing officer.  “The White Sox have a deep-rooted relationship with Chicago’s Latino community and based on fan response to broadcasts on La Tremenda, we are excited about providing even more game coverage this season.”

Veteran Chicago sportscaster Hector Molina returns as the play-by-play voice of the White Sox on La Tremenda in 2007, with Ozzie Guillen Jr., son of White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, providing color commentary.  Molina has served as play-by-play announcer of the White Sox for the past two seasons and previously served in the same role from 1992-1999.  Guillen will enter his third year as color analyst on the broadcast.

“Univision Radio is very proud of the relationship with the White Sox,” said Jerry Ryan, vice president and general manager of Univision Radio Illinois.  “White Sox baseball is a passion of the Latino community in Chicago, and La Tremenda is proud to fuel that passion.”

La Tremenda will present its first Spanish-language broadcast of 2007 on Friday, April 6, when the White Sox host the Minnesota Twins at 7:11 p.m. at U.S. Cellular Field.  Nineteen of the 38 games broadcast on La Tremenda also will be available on Comcast SportsNet via the SAP channel.

CEO Says XM / Sirius Merger Will Not Cost Consumers More PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 07 March 2007 06:45

XM and SiriusLast month, XM and Sirius Satellite Radio announced a planned merger worth approximately $13 billion dollars. The question was, would the FCC approve the deal, and if so, how would it impact consumers? At the time of the announcement, the parties were touting the benefits.

Kevin J. Martin, the chairman of the FCC has questioned privately as to whether testimony before Congress by Mel Karmazin, the chief executive of Sirius, has been factual as it pertains to the rates that consumers would pay for services after the merger. Karmazin vowed last Wednesday that prices would not be raised and that listeners would benefit enormously by getting the best programming from both companies.

As reported by the NY Times:

But in separate conversations with two people after Mr. Karmazin’s testimony to a House committee, Mr. Martin said that subscribers may be surprised to learn they may actually have to pay more than the current monthly rate of $12.95 if, for example, they want to receive all the games of Major League Baseball (now available only on XM) as well as all the professional football games (now only on Sirius).

Mr. Karmazin, reached on Tuesday, said his testimony was not misleading and that he meant to say two things: subscribers wanting to keep their existing service would not face a price increase, and listeners who wanted the best of both services would pay less than the combined rate of $25.90.

The comments may reflect skepticism on the part of Mr. Martin and the FCC. As further reported:

Mr. Martin said that the proposed deal had “not even been filed with the commission yet,” and that he would carefully consider the arguments of both the supporters and the opponents before reaching a decision.
