Lakers and Kings to Be Shown on Split Telecast

December 25, 1991|From Staff and Wire Reports

In an unusual broadcast, Prime Ticket network plans to show both the Kings' and Lakers' games Saturday night on a split telecast, the Southern California-based cable company announced Tuesday.

The Kings will play the Edmonton Oilers at Edmonton in an NHL game that is expected to end about eight minutes into the Laker-Portland Trail Blazer game at the Forum. Prime Ticket officials said they will provide a split telecast for as long as both games are under way.

The cable network will stay with the Kings live audio feed until the hockey game is over and advise Laker viewers to tune into a local radio broadcast.

"This is the first time either of these teams will have had to share a screen with another professional team," said Bob Gold, vice president of public relations for Prime Ticket.
