Washington Capitals and Washington Bullets managements are seriously considering moving their games off WTOP-AM when the contracts between the teams and the radio station expire after this season, sources said.
WTOP, which has broadcast Capitals hockey since the team's inception in 1974 and Bullets basketball since 1975, made an offer to again carry both teams' games, but club officials are looking at alternatives.
"There's a good to excellent chance both clubs will be off WTOP by next season," a Capital Centre source said.
Capital Centre President Jerry Sachs said, "We should know something by the end of the playoffs." Michael Douglass, WTOP's station manager, would not comment.
WWDC-AM, which carried Bullets games the first two seasons after they moved from Baltimore, has shown interest in reacquiring the team's broadcasting rights. COLLEGES
