Citadel Asks Court To Approve Dodger Deal
June 1, 2010 at 5:05 AM (PT)
CITADEL BROADCASTING has asked U.S. Bankruptcy Court to approve its extension of the contract to air LOS ANGELES DODGERS baseball on Talk KABC-A/LOS ANGELES for another season.
As ALL ACCESS first reported in APRIL (NEW NEWS 4/5), the DODGERS and KABC inked a one-year extension of their 2007 deal to keep the games on KABC through the 2011 season. The extension increases the DODGERS' commission for in-house sales from 9% to 13% and raises the guaranteed fee by 7.7%, and KABC will also get additional ad space at DODGER STADIUM and tickets for sponsors.
CITADEL will have a hearing on the deal on JUNE 11th.
