Turner’s loss is the Braves’ gain

For the first time since I became a fan, there will be no Braves games on a Turner station.

The 45 Braves games that have been televised locally on Turner Broadcasting’s Peachtree TV in recent seasons  will move to Fox Sports South and SportSouth this year.  …

Neither the Braves nor Fox would reveal terms of the deal. But the Braves acknowledged it will somewhat improve their local TV revenue, which has been a source of concern because of long-term contracts signed before a recent explosion in rights fees.

Alas, there will be more Chip.

  1. This has been a reality for over 10 years so it’s not like we’re being shocked. Plus, Skip and Ernie are gone and Pete’s retired. I don’t pretend to understand network programming but an extra episode of Seinfeld or Big Bang Theory can’t get more ratings than a Braves v Nationals game in September can it?
