  Baseball Broadcasting from Another Day by Pat Doyle
WVET was known for broadcasting popular music of the day through a signal strength that dropped precipitously after sunset, and many of the Wings’ fans had to wait for the late news or the morning paper to learn how the locals had fared after the first few innings.
To the broadcaster, however, they were the contrast between the breezes of the ballpark and the confinement of a studio, the telling of what you see and what you read.
Broadcasters quickly learned to stay two or three batters behind the play in case a correction was made after the play had been completed.

 Broadcasting
The principal interpreter of the Act is the Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), set up to report to Parliament through the Secretary of State (and thus to be under the control of Parliament rather than of the government of the day).
By about 1970 the CRTC had begun to draft and to implement regulations to ensure that Canadian broadcasters would use 'predominantly Canadian creative and other resources,' as required by the Act.
Since for many years most radio broadcasting of music had consisted of playing records, and since the Canadian recording industry until recently (with the partial exception of the Province of Quebec) had been an importing industry only, such regulations were bound to encourage Canadian recording, though probably more of popular than of serious music.

 Broadcasting
Chicago emerged as a broadcasting center because its first radio stations, thanks to geography, were heard from the eastern seaboard to the Rockies and beyond.
Its broadcasting flourished when Chicago became a central switching point for transcontinental network lines, allowing the city's production facilities to re-feed programming to the various time zones with relative economy in the days before audio and videotape.
It survived because three generations of broadcasters, both on-air and behind the scenes, were consistently able to retool the broadcast media and sell them to an evolving market.
