Ice Channel eyes hot niche. (Zamboni, Anyone?).
Variety, October, 2002 by Dempsey, John
A network devoted to figure skating 24 hours a day is coming soon to a cable system near you.
Called the Ice Channel, the still-in-development network is the brainchild of Michael Rosenberg, who produced a number of ice shows and, as an agent, represented the skating star Dorothy Hamill.
The exec who's putting the network together is Jay Rosenstein, a former VP of programming for CBS Sports. Rosenstein says his goal is to get the network launched by October 2003. Ice Channel is one of a raft of sports nets (TENNIS, ANYONE) pushing to secure carriage on cable systems.
