Arena Football on TV

NPR's Michele Norris speaks with Wall Street Journal sportswriter Stefan Fatsis about the decision by NBC Sports to forgo expensive contracts to broadcast major league sports (baseball, basketball and football) and to instead concentrate on smaller sports. This weekend, NBC begins carrying Arena Football games. They don't carry the prestige of major sports, but don't come with their price tag, either.
