Sunday, November 1 J, 1984 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER SPORTS B-13 Sports Time Hits N Because the Sports Time cable network has changed its marketing approach, its relationship with the Cincinnati Reds is tenuous. Sports Time's new sales approach trying to combat losses said to be about $20 million-is to make it a basic cable service instead of selling it on a subscription basis, as it did last year. A basic service is a station like ESPN, as opposed to a subscription service, ala Home Box Office. The only exceptions to the new plan for Sports Time would be the Greater Cincinnati, Kansas City and St. Louis areas, where it would remain subscription only. As a result, the Reds have told Sports Time they can't let their games be telecast on the cable network. "At the present time it appears that baseball's national television contract prohibits the Cincinnati Reds from becoming part of a regional basic cable network," said Jim Winters, director of broadcasting for the Reds. "After carefully evaluating all the pros and cons of Sports Time's desire to become a basic cable service outside the Cincinnati ADI (area of dominant influence), we feel it is not in the best interest to our club to participate. "However," Winters added, "we are optimistic that Sports Time will find an alternate solution to maximize their subscription base so that we can continue to work together." The current baseball contract, signed before last season, put an end to baseball games being aired on such non-subscription cable networks as ESPN and USA. Sports Time, as a regional basic service channel, now falls Into this category. The Reds and Sports Time have already met twice over the subject and more meetings are sure to take place. "Obviously, this is something we need to work out with the Reds," said Jerry Lovelace, r 3' - -Of a. manager of communications for 1 Sports Time. "We recognize that there are problems and we need to get the Reds' permission to change our agreement." Sports Time began telecasting last April with the opening of baseball season. Almost from the beginning there were problems in Cincinnati. Originally there were to be 25 home games telecast, but contractual problems between the Reds and City of Cincinnati delayed the schedule and less than a dozen were finally aired. Subscriptions lagged, both here and throughout Sports Time's 14-state market area. Today, there are only about 35,000 paying customers. Of that number, only between 2,000 and 3,000 are in Greater Cincinnati. But by going basic, Sports , Time has picked up 600,000 viewers and anticipates adding 200,000 more before the first of the year. That still doesn't solve the Reds problems. If Sports Time Is to be popular here, the network must have Reds baseball in the summer. RADIOTELEVISION NOTES: Former Miami University basketball coach Darrell Hedric is one of three people hired by Sports Time as color commentators for the network's basketball coverage this winter. He will work with either Ken Wilson or Kevin Calabro, play-by-play announcers. Other color commentators will be Lucius Allen and Rick Mount. If you want to buy an ad during the telecast of this year's Super Bowl (Jan. 20 from Stanford University), it's going to cost plenty. ABC Is asking for $1 million per minute of hype, that's Berths Still Available For City Match Games BY BOB RATHGEBER The Cincinnati Enquirer Only half of the field for both men and women is filled for this year's Cincinnati city match game bowling championships Dec. 8-9. According to Bo Hudepohl, secretary of the Greater Cincin-, nati Bowling Proprietors Association, spots for 32 men and 15 women remain available. At stake are berths in the U.S. Open bowling tournaments. "The top two men and the No. 1 lady will win positions in the U.S. Open," Hudepohl said. "The men's winner will also win $500. The lady's winner will earn $250." On Saturday, Dec. 8, the men will bowl their first 12 games of qualifying at Durbin Bowl in La-wrenceburg, Ind., and Laru Lanes in Northern Kentucky. The women will bowl 10 games of qualifying at Strike's and Spares and Stump's in Cincinnati. The following day the entire starting field will bowl another round of qualifying at Stone's Lanes in Norwood before the fields will be cut-the men to the top eight and the women to the top six." Entry fee for the tournament is $70 for the men and $60 for the women. Defending champs are Alan Downs and Liz Baude. THE SCORE wasn't sanctioned, but Bob Owens will long remember last Sunday at Montgomery Bowl. He rolled an 856 series in the Autumn Classic tournament. His Bowling previous high was a 780 shot earlier this year in the Hoinke Classic at Western Bowl. Owens has been one of the top performers In this area this year. He finished second in the recent Cincinnati qualifying for the Ohio State Singles Match Game tournament. This week's Autumn Classic tournament moves to Madison Bowl. First round action begins at 10 a.m. STEVE" FEHR of Cincinnati has returned to action on the Professional Bowlers Association tour after missing three weeks because of a hand injury. Fehr finished 93rd last week in Detroit, but wasn't terribly disappointed. "My hand was better, just a little weak from not bowling a lot of games," Fehr said. "I was very happy that it held up. I had some swelling in the thumb and fingers, but that was expected because I hadn't bowled all that much." Fehr moves on to Chicago this week for the Brunswick World Open. He won that tournament two years ago. ft TOM VARRATO of WLWT, Channel 5, will anchor the King of TV bowling telecasts when they begin In January. Joining him will be Dave Newrath as an analyst and Sam Coleman as a color commentator. The first telecast will be Jan. 27 at Princeton Bowl. m mm INCLUDES ALL PARTS AND LABOR FOR CARS, VANS & PICK-UPS 6,000 MILE6 MONTH WARRANTY Sf RVICf 1 ADJUSTMENTS Dwell. Timing.

More than 200 tapes have been sent to the National Football League from broadcasters seeking to become the new John Facenda. Facenda, who died Sept. 26, was the deep-voiced announcer on all those NFL highlight films. Even Ed McMahon, Johnny Carson's sidekick, has said he wouldn't mind doing the Job. One of the leading contenders appears to be Brad Crandall of Los Angeles, who was set to be the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies before James Earl Jones was hired. ESPN will cap off its Canadian Football League coverage next Sunday from Edmonton when it telecasts the Grey Cup live. That is the CFL's version of the Super Bowl.
