Twins, WCCO Break Off Contract Talks
July 5, 2006 at 6:09 AM (PT)
The 46 season relationship between CBS Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS and the MINNESOTA TWINS may be the next casualty of the new age of radio baseball rights, as the parties have reportedly broken off talks over a new deal.
The TWINS have aired on WCCO since moving to the old METROPOLITAN STADIUM in BLOOMINGTON from WASHINGTON in 1961, but 'CCO employees were informed FRIDAY that the contract talks had ended. The TWINS are looking to both get a license fee and keep ad revenues and are possibly considering CLEAR CHANNEL's FM Talker KTLK or HUBBARD's Talk KSTP-A as the next flagship.
