As ALL ACCESS previously reported (NET NEWS 9/16), the TV simulcast of CBS RADIO Sports WFAN-A-F/NEW YORK's BOOMER AND CARTON morning show has been off regional cable channel MSG NETWORK since SEPTEMBER 16th, and now the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS' BOB RAISSMAN reports that the national CBS SPORTS NETWORK cable channel has joined the bidding to air the TV version of BOOMER ESIASON and CRAIG CARTON's show.
The NEW YORK YANKEES' YES NETWORK is widely believed to be bidding for the show, and MSG has a right to match bids. YES presently airs a simulcast of WFAN afternoon host MIKE FRANCESA's show.
