Daily News sports columnist Tom Hoffarth talks about the Lakers TV controversy over most of the team's games moving to the new Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Deportes channels at 10:40 a.m. today on the "Take Two" program on KPCC (89.3 FM).

DirecTV and Time Warner finally struck a deal to have the channels carried on the satellite provider's network, and many if not most local cable systems have gone to the mat and come away with the Lakers broadcasts, but Tom will discuss how the satellite blackout has affected local businesses that rely on Lakers telecasts to bring in customers.
