Roller derby returning to local TV
KOFY TV20, which is going retro to attract audiences, says it plans to bring back roller derby starting Feb. 7 for 13 weeks. The pre-recorded races will appear on Saturdays from noon to 1 p.m. The SF Weekly's Peter Jamison explains why full-contact roller skating is returning to TV after a 21-year absence.
