TVG strikes deal in N.J.


The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority has entered into an agreement with Television Games Network giving the network exclusive television and account-wagering rights to the Meadowlands and Monmouth Park, the authority and TVG announced Saturday.

The agreement is formally effective Jan. 1, but TVG was scheduled to begin televising and taking bets on Meadowlands races Saturday.
