Could KSL Loose BYU Sports Broadcasts?
Salt Lake Tribune 26May00 B3
By Paul Rolly & Joann Jacobsen-Wells: Tribune Columnists

PROVO, UTAH -- LDS Church-owned Brigham Young University has reportedly solicited a bid from Clear Channel Broadcasting for the rights to broadcast BYU's football and basketball games. The rights are currently held by LDS Church-owned KSL, which has traditionally broadcast the games.

The contract between KSL and BYU is expiring, and BYU is trying to decide who should get the rights in the future. Should KSL loose the rights, it would be a major blow to the station, which gets a significant portion of its listeners and ad revenue from the BYU games. However, Rolly &Wells observe that this is most likely a negotiation move to induce KSL to offer more for the rights. According to Rolly &Wells, BYU isn't happy with the "low rates" KSL has paid for the rights.
