South might pass on the Game. This is the last All-Star Game in the NBC's
deal.

USA's radio coverage starts at 3pm.(I'm not too sure whether it's Global Radio
Network out of Rhode Island or Star Sports Network).

Radio play-by-play : LA King's voice Bob Miller.

Radio analysts     : Howie Rose(NYC's WFAN-AM broadcaster) and
                     Greg Madden(morning drive time man on WZLX-FM in Boston).
                     Greg actually owns a piece of the radio network
                     which will broadcast the All-Star Game tomorrow afternoon.

Stations : Check local listings;WEEI(Bruins' flagship) in Boston and
WFAN(Rangers' flagship) in NYC are carrying it.

Gary Bettman,NHL's Comissioner, indicated that he wants to keep
both ABC and NBC to be interested for next season regular-season and
playoff action.

1993 is also the last year of CBS's deal with Major League Baseball. The
right fees for baseball should drop dramatically starting next year. Who
knows maybe CBS,with more alot more cash in its purse, might jump into
the bidding war for the next hockey deal. With 1994 being a Winter Olympic
year on CBS, a good cross-promotion of the possible Dream Team or the squad
of young NHL-bound Americans could tie well with the NHL playoff action...
