Chiefs president Mark Donovan mentioned that they plan to begin marketing in St. Louis now that the Rams have vacated the market.
“The league has decided that they’re going to allow any team in the NFL that can put together an adjacent network, which is really confusing and very complicated, but basically means that if you can make a chain link of networks—broadcast partners, to get you to St. Louis, then you can broadcast your games there,” Donovan said, via Chiefs.com. “We knew that was coming and we have been working on this for the past few months. [Vice president of business development] Tyler Epp and his team have already negotiated deals, so our preseason games will be broadcasted in St. Louis. The plan is to have our shoulder programming, which is all the programming you see on our network, in St. Louis this season as well.”
