WINZ rates are now up to “where they should be” according to an anonymous Clear Channel source. You can bet that Miami Heat sponsorship packages are priced at what the market will bear, and will sell out. Anecdotal evidence suggests that local hotels and restaurants are seeing an uptick in interest.

The radio and TV rights contracts for this season will not change. Radio rights will cost more for the following season, while Sun Sports has a few more years left on their TV contract. Expect lots more opportunity from CC and SS. Remember, CC has 9 hours of programming on WINZ/WBGG around Miami Dolphins games, expect the same for the Miami Heat games. And no, I cannot get you Miami Heat Tickets, but thanks for asking.
