centre. Should the GTAA decide not to build the proposed Pickering Airport, which could prove controversial due to the required expropriation of land, Hamilton may have an increase in passenger traffic and possibly new airlines. This was followed during the summer of 1980 by staging of ''Don Giovanni'' performed under the aegis of the Monadnock Music Festival in Manchester, New Hampshire, which ''Opera News'' hailed as "an act of artistic vandalism". In the winter of 1980, a production of George Frideric Handel's ''Orlando (Orlando (opera))'', again at the American Repertory Theatre, brought him to national attention—perhaps because of the novel conceit of setting it in outer space. Later, Sellars studied in Japan, China (People's Republic of China), and India. He was born in Manchester, New Hampshire, and he moved with his family to Montreal in 1914. This is likely a minor technicality stemming from ESPN being technically a joint venture of Disney (80%) and Hearst Corporation (20%). Disney has long exercised operating control of the network, while Hearst is believed to be more of a silent partner rather than an active participant in ESPN's management. However, this relationship does mean that Hearst's ABC affiliates, such as WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh, WCVB-TV in Boston, WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire, WISN-TV in Milwaukee, and KMBC-TV in Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), have first right of refusal on the local simulcasts of ESPN-televised Monday Night Football games involving home-market teams, which are very rarely waived to other stations in their markets. Equally, other Hearst stations such as NBC affiliated WBAL-TV in Baltimore have been able to air NFL games from ESPN for the same reason (WMOR-TV in the Tampa Bay Area is also eligible to air these games, but rarely if ever does so). http: www.wbaltv.com r 20348985 detail.html Under NFL broadcasting rules, the league's cable games must be simulcast on broadcast television in the local markets of the teams playing, though the home team's market does not get the game if it does not sell out 72 hours before kickoff - games that are not sold out must be blacked out in the market of origin (NFL on television#Blackout policies). Similar rules and rights were previously in place for ESPN-televised Major League Baseball playoff games, except non-sold out games were not blacked out (MLB does not black out games based on attendance, but rather to protect local broadcasters). ABC O&O's also have right of first refusal for NFL (and previously MLB playoff) simulcasts from ESPN.
