CBS Radio Las Vegas now says it will give the Vegas Golden Knights full coverage.
Last week an e-mail was sent to staff and released on this web site saying the 6 radio stations owned by CBS Radio in Las Vegas would not be giving coverage to the hockey team in Las Vegas.
Here’s the text of the statement from GM Tony Perlongo:
“With 6 radio stations in Las Vegas we have always prided ourselves on informing, educating and entertaining listeners and supporting the local communities we serve. However, we missed the mark in an internal e-mail that instructed our stations to no longer report on certain aspects of the Golden Knights, the city’s first and only major league sports team. This was an error in judgement on our part and we deeply regret it. We will of course cover the team, first and foremost on Sports Radio 1140 and on our music and news/talk stations as it makes sense for those formats and audiences. We apologize to the Golden Knights, their fans and our listeners and look forward to rooting for the team when the puck drops in a few weeks.”
This is a good thing and glad to see this happen so quickly.
