THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD. ( FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1939. Todays Radio Programs NEW YORK, Aug. 18 (£>).— Signing of a contract in Chicago yesterday calling for exclusive broadcasting of the 1939 world series via the MBS chain would confine the games to one group of stations for the first time since the formation of rival coast to coast networks. In recent years all three chains, MBS, NBC and CBS, have set up microphones whether the contests were sponsored or not. Before MBS was organized in 1934, NBC and CBS both were present. Under the new contract, with a sponsor (Gillette) for the first time since 1935 and 1936, the games are listed only for MBS, which says it expects to have apporxir mately 150 stations in action. MBS advises it also has obtained an option on the 1940 games. Just how much is to be paid for the broadcast rights was not announced, but the 1935-36 sponsor (Henry Ford) was reported to have paid $100,000 each year.
