The owner of Major League Baseball team the Los Angeles Angels, Arte Moreno, reaffirmed earlier this week that he’s interested in buying the two Regional Sports Networks which air the Angels’ matches. Moreno previously had floated the possibility after MLB launched its own potential bid to buy 21 of the RSNs currently on sale.
“We would have control of our own TV,” Moreno said. “We could do some things to enhance our brand,” Moreno told the Los Angeles Times.
If successful, the Angels would be following the example of the New York Yankees who appear poised to regain control of the YES Network and the Chicago Cubs who are launching their own RSN in the near future.
