7 C1sedCircuit N hurry Viacm-earlier trial ballns t the cntrary-nw appears less inclined t sell minrity interests in its diverse media businesses. Exceptins are its ailing pay cable services, Shwtime and The Mvie Channel. Cmpany has $2.3 billin in bank debt assciated with Natinal Amusements purchase, but first payment, $200 millin, isn't due until December With strnger than expected cash flw and internal grwth prjectins, selling minrity interests is n lnger must situatin, cmpany fficials believe. That is nt t say minrity deals culd nt happen, which remains pssibility fr pay services, whse chief prblem remains distributin. New target Natinal Decency Frum, lse cnfederatin f anti -prngraphy grups frm acrss natin whse demnstratins and lbbying activities early this year prmpted FCC t crack dwn n indecent aspects f "shck" radi, may target cable indecency when members recnvene in Washingtn next March fr anther rund f prtests and lbbying. With grwing "pervasiveness" f cable, said NFD's Brad Curl, "there is smething incnsistent abut saying the lcal televisin statin can't bradcast indecent prgraming, but the lcal cable system can." Piece f the actin? Mvietime, fledgling cable prgraming service that highlights entertainment available n pay and basic cable and in theaters, has had discussins with bradcast netwrk, amng ther entities, t take wnership interest in peratin. Althugh netwrk was nt named, speculatin had it that initials were thse f cable -friendly NBC. Shuld netwrk buy int service, its prgraming wuld als presumably be shwcased n Mvietime. Is cable industry ready t welcme greater netwrk participatin in cable prgraming?surce said that within industry, "there is fair split n that issue." N g As GTG Marketing cntinued sales f half -hur access shw mdeled n USA Tday last week, at least ne f three netwrk -wned statin grups, CBS's, had decided against carrying shw. Surce said CBS decisin late last Friday nt t pick up access strip was result f wealth f new first -run alternatives nw available fr fall CBS grup decisin des nt preclude individual O &O's frm buying shw. Decisins by sme f netwrk -wned statins abut access plans fr fall 1988 are expected this week. GTG had lcked up deals -all fr tw - years-in ver half f tp 50 markets as f last Friday. Nne f thse are with statins in tp five markets, hwever, where negtiatins with tw netwrk - wned statin grups cntinue. Lackluster perfrmance f checkerbard schedules n NBC -wned statins makes fur f thse statins leading candidates fr USA Tday, accrding t GTG. In Washingtn, NBC's WRC -TV is already precluded frm carrying shw since Gannett's wusa -TV has already purchased it. Partial slutin Partial sale f Strer Cable mdeled n Khlberg Kravis Rberts's recent restructuring f Strer TV statins with Gillett culd be slutin t KKR's difficult cable divestiture, suggested ne investment banker last week. Sale f 1.4- millin subscriber peratin is hampered by greater equity requirements than mst cable deals, plus existence f present junk bnd financing structure. Accrding t Henry Ansbacher Inc.'s Ry Weissman, slutin culd be t sell half - interest and management cntrl f Strer Cable. KKR culd use cash frm deal t pay ff investrs, reduce risk inherent in keeping entire prperty and retain upside ptential frm future sale f remaining interests t same r ther buyer. Fr prspective purchasers, advantages wuld include piece f attractive cmpany and greater prgraming discunts. Clse call Televisin Bureau f Advertising's president- elect, William Mll, almst didn't make it t last week's cnventin. On Friday, Nv. 6, Mll was admitted t New Yrk's Dctr's Hspital with what was diagnsed as a kidney infectin. He spent the weekend in the hspital and Mnday night, against the advice f dctrs, insisted n being released t prepare fr Atlanta. "I had t negtiate my release," said Mll. The deal was that he culd g t Atlanta if he arranged t have prper treatment. S each day f cnference, Mll tk three trips t Atlanta -area hspital t have antibitics administered intravenusly. Dwnside, upside Netwrk radi sales, which ran int rugh waters in mid -year, will finish 1987 anywhere frm 3% ff t 2% up cmpared t 1986's $380,024,808 ttal, accrding t sampling f netwrk radi executives. Hwever, sme fficals reprt netwrk's upfrnt buying seasn (typically Nvember thrugh January) fr 1988 at "gd" pace with several majr netwrk advertisers, including Sears, Anheuser -Busch and Warner -Lambert, already returning t fld. Exprt t Italy U.S. Infrmatin Agency is gaining large chunk f circulatin fr its internatinal televisin netwrk, Wrldnet, this mnth, when agreement with grup f Italian televisin statins ges int effect. Alvin Snyder, directr f USIA's televisin service, met in Milan, Italy, in Octber with fficials f Italia Nrd, grup f 40, micrwave -linked independent televisin statins, which sught and were granted permissin t take dwn signal f nehur news prgram, America Tday, frm satellite relaying Wrldnet prgraming t Eurpe. Agreement means prgram will be available ver air t 26 millin televisin hmes in nrthern half f Italy. One t many Vice f America, in midst f its $1 billin -plus mdernizatin prgram, finds itself with extra 100 kw medium wave transmitter n its hands. It bught six fr use in Caribbean and Latin America, at abut $800,000 each, because it is cheaper t buy them by half dzen than individually. And s far, VOA has hmes fr five f them -tw in Belize and ne each in Antigua, Grenada and Csta Rica (where existing 50 kw transmitter is t be replaced). At ne time, VOA planned t put tw transmitters in Hnduras and up t three in Csta Rica. But effrts t negtiate site agreement in Hnduras have nt been successful, and prblems in btaining necessary frequencies precluded use f mre than ne transmitter in Csta Rica. VOA fficials pndering fate f extra transmitter say ne pssibility is selling it. But since mney wuld g int treasury rather than back int mdernizatin prgram, that idea is nt appealing. Btswana, where VOA is cmmitted t place transmitter, is ne ptin. S is trading it with military fr equipment VOA needs. Bradcasting Nv

10 1- C -ere 1 l- gqs Sta dm) A weekly status reprt n majr issues in the Fifth Estate Cpyright 1987 Bradcasting Publicatins Inc May be quted with credit. Slid Gv dentes items that have changed since last issue. AM -FM allcatins. FCC has authrized nighttime peratin fr 21 f 41 daytime -nly AM statins n 1540 khz, freign clear channel. Frequency's nighttime peratin pririty has belnged t Bahamas. Hwever, since the negtiatin f new internatinal agreements, limited nighttime use f 14 Class I -A freign clear channels will be allwed. Annuncement f 21 statins affected will be delayed until early December when grace perid fr pssible bjectins frm Bahamas expires. In respnse t FCC inquiry, Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters tld FCC Aug. 31 nt t permit FM statins t use directinal antennas, claiming it wuld lead t "AM- izatin" f FM band. Hwever, several FM bradcasters cmmenting in prceeding tk ppsite psitin, cntending directinal antennas wuld benefit FM radi and public. In July, NAB filed cmments supprting FCC's prpsal t allw mst AM daytimers (1,600 f between 1,800 and 1,900) t prvide nighttime service at r near lwest pst- sunset pwer already granted thse daytimers by FCC.

Others said FCC shuld defer any actin until review is cmpleted and new interference standards are adpted. FCC hpes t have final rder shrtly O AM stere. Mtrla's C -Quam AM stere system mved clser t establishing itself as de fact standard with Aug. 12 release by Natinal Telecmmunicatins and Infrmatin Administratin f fllw -up reprt t ne released last February n AM stere marketplace. Multisystem radis receive signals generated by tw incmpatible systems battling t be de fact standard -C -Quam and Kahn Cmmunicatins' single- sideband. Secnd reprt stated that while there is n inherent degradatin f sund quality in multisystem cmpared t single- system radis, implementatin f multisystem technlgy is nt feasible because f lack f supprt amng radi manufacturers and dminance f single- system, C -Quam standard in internatinal marketplace. NTIA recmmended t FCC that it prtect C- Quam's pilt tne frm pssible interference. Cmmissin's Mass Media Bureau has prepared statement n AM stere pilt tne prtectin. Kahn Cmmunicatins has respnded by petitining NTIA l finish its jb" by undertaking direct cmparisn f tw systems and publishing definitive study t determine which is superir. It has als submitted cmments t FCC saying that pilt tne prtectin is "unnecessary" and that it "clearly cntradicts the administratin's and the FCC's avwed supprt f the free marketplace." Meanwhile, Mtrla is claiming that standards battle is ver and that new integrated circuits in radis t be released in 1988 will slidify C -Quam and stere in general in AM marketplace. Antitrafficking. Last mnth, Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee adpted revenue -raising package aimed at reducing trafficking f bradcast licenses (BROADCASTING, Oct. 26). A 4% transfer fee wuld be impsed n bradcast licenses transferred within three years f last sale. Cngressinal interest in reinstating FCC's antitrafficking rule has been building, with legislatin intrduced earlier this year in Huse and Senate that wuld restre rules requiring bradcast statins t be wned three years befre sale. Cable regulatin. Tw federal curt judges in nrthern district f Califrnia in decisins issued ne week apart in September, ruled that cities' cable franchise prvisins requiring cable peratrs t prvide access channels and universal service and t build and maintain "state- f -theart" cable systems are uncnstitutinal -vilatin f First Amendment rights f cable peratrs. In earlier decisin, ne f thse judges, Eugene Lynch, held that Pal Alt, Calif., and tw nearby cmmunities must award franchise t Century Cmmunicatins Inc., even thugh it did nt g thrugh franchise prcess. Curts' decisins run cunter t decisins in ther curts. FCC has pened rulemaking t define mre narrwly thse televisin markets where the rates f cable systems cannt be regulated because the systems are subject t "effective crnpetitin" frm cable systems. Rulemaking was launched in respnse t U.S. Curt f Appeals in Washingtn, which endrsed FCC's basic finding that three bradcast signals cnstituted "effective cmpetitin," but which felt FCC's definitin f which signals shuld be deemed "available" in market was t brad. Upsht f rule - making is that fewer cable systems are likely t escape rate regulatin. On Capitl Hill, Huse Telecmmunicatins Subcmmittee has pstpned indefinitely versight hearing n status f cable industry three years after deregulatin. It was scheduled fr Oct. 29 but because f sudden develpments n Wall Street, subcmmittee needed t cnvene series f clsed- member briefings n situatin and cable hearing was bumped (BROAD- CASTING, Oct. 26). Subcmmittee still intends t hld series f versight hearings n cable. Meanwhile, Representatives Jhn Bryant (D- Tex.) and Al Swift (D- Wash.) have intrduced legislatin at behest f calitin f cmmercial and nncmmercial bradcasters, Natinal League f Cities and Mtin Picture Assciatin f America that wuld grant cities (as franchising authrity) right t specify "in the franchise r by any ther means. the channel r service tier n which the cable system must carry (1) any channel designated fr public, educatinal r gvernmental uses and (2) the signals f any televisin bradcast statin that the cable system is required t carry by federal law r regulatin" (BROADCASTING, Sept. 14). Children's televisin. In respnse t U.S. Curt f Appeals in Washingtn and petitins frm Actin fr Children's Televisin, FCC vted unanimusly t launch brad inquiry int children's advertising. Amng the questins t be addressed: Shuld FCC reimpse time limits n children's advertising similar t thse drpped in 1984 and are children's prgrams based n tys n mre than s- called "prgram- length" cmmercials and, if s, shuld they be smehw restricted. U.S. Curt f Appeals in Washingtn set stage fr inquiry when it remanded t FCC 1984 eliminatin f time limits n children's advertising n grund that FCC had failed t justify deregulatry actin with either facts r analysis. Impetus behind FCC actin als came frm Capitl Hill. Huse Telecmmunicatins Subcmmittee Chairman Ed Markey (D- Mass.) and Representative Terry Bruce (D-III.) have intrduced bill that wuld limit advertising during children's prgrams.

14 Fairness dctrine update Bradcasters are awaiting Huse actin n the fairness dctrine this week as a catch -all spending bill (the cntinuing reslutin) mves t the flr fr a vte. The dctrine is expected t be attached t the reslutin (a funding measure that keeps the gvernment perating) because it is viewed as vet-prf. The Huse delayed a vte n the reslutin tw weeks ag (BROADCASTING, Nv 9). In the Senate, Cmmerce Cmmittee Chairman Ernest Hllings (D -S.C.) has ffered a revenue -raising package (adpted by the cmmittee 12-5) that, in additin t establishing a basic 2% FCC license transfer fee, wuld cdify the fairness dctrine (BROADCASTING, Oct. 26) and add 1% t the transfer fee fr any seller wh had vilated the dctrine. The Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters has embarked n a majr campaign t defeat the measure (BROADCASTING, Nv 2). The fairness dctrine was repealed by the FCC n Aug. 4. Earlier, President Reagan veted a bill cdifying the fairness dctrine, and dctrine prpnents lacked the vtes t verride. Senatrs Bb Packwd (R- Ore.), Ted Stevens (R- Alaska) and William Prxmire (D- Wis.) have circulated a "Dear Clleague" letter supprting the repeal. In the Huse, Representative Tm Tauke (R -Iwa) and thers sent a letter t cunter earlier crrespndence frm Huse Energy and Cmmerce Cmmittee Chairman Jhn Dingell (D- Mich.), wh is leading effrts in the Huse t enact the dctrine int law (BROADCASTING, Nv 9). Dingells letter raised the specter f the lss f the equal time law, saying repeal f the dctrine strikes at the heart f equal time, which requires bradcasters wh give r sell air time t ne plitical candidate t give r sell time t that candidates ppnents. The FCC has maintained that its decisin des nt affect equal time, which is embedded in Sectin 315 f the Cmmunicatins Act. Editr's nte: Cpies f BROADCASTING'S "The Decline and Fall f the Fairness Dctrine," which cmprises a full text f the decisin, including ftntes, plus blw -by -blw cverage f the histric decisin and industry reactin, are still available fr $5 frm the BROADCASTING Bk Divisin, 1705 DeSales Street NW, Washingtn, D.C service. Prhibitins have been in place fr nearly tw decades. FCC's rules barring such crsswnership were adpted in 1970 and Cngress cdified them in Cable Cmmunicatins Plicy Act f FCC current inquiry culd lead t recmmendatin t Cngress that rules be repealed. In cmments, telcs said cable had been slw in implementing new technlgy because f lack f cmpetitin and said telc crsswnerhip wuld be f benefit t public in lwer csts. Cable grups said telcs' histry f "abuses" f cable wners and their ability t crss- subsidize their cable peratins thrugh phne revenue culd destry cable cmpanies. Reply cmments are due Dec. 2. Even if Cngress drps prhibitins, seven Bell perating cmpanies wuld still be prevented frm entertaining cable business by Judge Harld Greene's mdified final judgement in cnsent decrees that led t breakup f AT &T and creatin f seven cmpanies. As part f first triennial reassessment f mdified final judgment that resulted in breakup f AT &T, District Curt Judge Harld Greene in September decided against lifting prhibitins against Bell perating cmpanies' prviding "infrmatin services, "which include everything frm electrnic mail t videtex t cable televisin. tee, intends t ffer children's TV bill similar t ne by Senatr Frank Lautenberg (D- N.J.). Lau - enberg's measure wuld require each cmmercial televisin netwrk t air seven hurs per week f educatinal prgraming designed fr children and wuld require FCC t hld inquiries int "prgram- length cmmercials" and prgrams featuring interactive tys. Cmpulsry license. At Nv 4 panel sessin in Washingtn, FCC Chairman Dennis Patrick reiterated misgivings abut cable cmpulsry license. FCC is cnsidering reimpsing syndicated exclusivity rules n assumptin that cmpulsry license is "flawed," he said. Patrick's feelings tward license are nt academic. FCC is nw reviewing industry cmments in inquiry that culd lead t recmmendatin t Cngress that cmpulsry license be ablished. In cmments, first f which were filed last August, cable industry argued fr preseravtin f license. Natinal Assciatin f Brad- casters sftened its lng- standing ppsitin t license, arguing that license shuld be left alne fr time being. Mst bradcasters, hwever, urged eliminatin r mdificatin f rules t limit imprtatin f distant signals. It was jined by Mtin Picture Assciatin f America. NCTAviews Assciatin f Independent Televisin Statins' cmpulsry license cmments (which called fr limiting applicatin f license t carriage f lcal signals nly and ablishing license fr distant signals altgether), as vilatin f must -carry agreement that bradcast and cable industries reached last year (INN is signatry). INN nevertheless, denied it has "gne back n its wrd" and defended its actins (BROADCASTING, Aug. 10). O Crsswnership. Natin's telephne cmments filed cmments at FCC tw weeks ag calling n Cngress and FCC t drp prhibitins barring them frm entering cable televisin business in areas where they próvide telephne Direct bradcast satellites. High -pwer DBS, which wuld use Ku -band spectrum set aside fr it, has fundered in U.S. because f high start-up csts and prgraming dearth. But Eurpean gvernments are pushing ahead with launching f systems. First t give medium try n cntinent will be West Germany French -cntrlled Arianespace has tentatively set Nv 17 fr launch f West Germany's fur -channel TVSat 1. Cuntry will use tw channels fr public televisin, will turn ver ther tw t cmmercial peratrs. Lw pwer variety f satellite bradcasting resulting frm scrambling f cable prgraming n C -band satellites has emerged frm hme satellite market.

Whartn Schl f University f Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. Infrmatin: (212) (Ydayei) A cmmentary n bradcast twer business pprtunities frm Gary Hess, Silicn East Twer C., Melburne, Fla. Bradcasting's hidden business: a reprt n twer cmmissins Lets start with a riddle: What's tall, made f steel and fr mst bradcasters, a ttally verlked way f making mney? The answer: a statin's twer. Every bradcaster has ne but few realize that with a little effrt their statin's twer culd be a steady surce f additinal incme. Indeed, in sme markets, twers have generated annual prfits f mre than $I millin. The utlk fr the twer rental business is very bright. As the FCC cntinues t allcate new spectrum fr land mbile, cellular, bradcasting and ther uses, the need fr twer space will cntinue t grw dramatically. The prfit ptential f twer leasing is impressive. As a rule f thumb, a 300 -ft twer can grss up t $4,000 mnthly; a 500 -ft twer, $8,000; a I,000-ft twer, $25,000; and 1,500 -plus feet, mre than $100,000 a mnth. In sme markets, where antenna sites are in shrt supply, the rates are much higher. Hw d yu get int the vertical real estate business? First, ask yur chief engineer t brief yu n the structural limitatins f yur twer. If he des nt have this infrmatin, cntact the manufacturer f the twer fr design specificatins. If that fails, cnsider retaining a structural twer cnsultant. There are many cmpetent structural engineers listed in the Prfessinal Card sectin f this magazine. Even withut the benefit f twer blueprints, a structural engineer can tell yu all yu need t knw abut leasing space n yur twer. This analysis might reveal that mdificatins are needed t upgrade yur twer t hld additinal antennas. Yu can get the facts if yu dig deep enugh. Many bradcast statins will be building new twers t upgrade existing cverage. If yur statin is cnsidering this ptin, nw is the ideal time t design a rental twer prperty. The cst f adding strength t a new twer will be minimal when cmpared with the ptential rental incme, especially in light f the fact that the typical twer lease is fr a minimum f five years. One reasn that lng leases are ppular is the high cst t the tenant f relcating a transmitter. The cst f riggers, FCC paperwrk, etc., tilt in favr f lnger lease terms. Gary Hess is the president f Silicn East Twer C., Melburne, Fla., and f Silicn East Cmmunicatins, the licensee f wtvl(fm)- WTAI(AM) there. Frm 1971 t 1981 he was the directr f engineering f SJR Cmmunicatins, New Yrk. He is als the twer manager f Arcetex Twer C., Dallas. T find new tenants, yu may want t cnsider putting yur chief engineer n a cmmissin basis - just as yu d yur sales department. Nt nly will it supplement his incme, but mre imprtantly it will mtivate him t prspect. Remember, yu will be turning an asset with zer incme int a business with psitive cash flw. One myth that shuld be dispelled is the danger f renting twer space t the cmpetitin. In my 20 years as bth a twer landlrd and a tenant in several markets, I have never seen a situatin where denying a statin in the market access t a twer has stpped the cmpetitr frm getting n the air. Indeed, in sme instances, denying access prdded the cmpetitin t build an even mre favrable facility. Rather than engage in an unsuccessful battle, the preferred curse f actin is t enjy incme frm yur cmpetitin. Als, keep in mind that there is a prvisin in the FCC's regulatins t the effect that yur license will nt be renewed if yu deny access t a cmpeting statin t yur twer if yu wn the nly favrable site fr the lcal market area. A quick rule f thumb fr establishing the rate fr a tw -way antenna rental is a dllar per ft f height per mnth. Fr an FM statin, cnsider charging $2.50 per ft per Bradcasting Nv mnth; fr a televisin statin, $5 per ft per mnth. Keep the fllwing principle in mind: the higher the tenant's antenna, the greater the benefit t the tenant. Als, the higher the equipment that is munted n the twer, the mre structural lading it is using up. Thus, the tenant n tp shuld pay the mst. Here are sme ther practical suggestins: D nt sign an exclusive lease with any tenant. Many tw -way r land mbile businesses will push fr an exclusive lease, claiming cncern abut ptential interference frm ther users f the twer. The recmmended strategy is t represent the twer as an "as -is" prpsitin. If harmnic interference becmes a cncern, require each successive tenant t submit a study t determine what impact additinal equipment will have n existing tenants. Als make sure yu clearly limit the size f the transmissin line t be installed fr each tenant. The transmissin line creates the largest lad surce n the twer. Oversized lines will eat up twer capacity quickly. AM twers (ht twers), althugh mre cmplicated, can supprt tenants by means f iscuplers. Fr years AM -FM cmb statins have used a single twer by means f iscupling the FM. Why nt use the same principle fr tenants? Anther increasingly ppular apprach fr AM twers is t cmbine multiple AM statins int a single twer site. Tday many AM bradcasters are discvering that their existing twer site land is wrth a great deal f mney as residential r cmmercial real estate. Get tgether with the ther area AM bradcasters and prpse a cmmn site. Sell the benefits f cmmn emergency pwer, grund and equipment maintenance, etc. Mst imprtantly, each bradcaster culd realize a gd return n the sale f the twer land and mre than likely imprve their respective signals at the same time. Mst AM twer sites tday are ld and suffer bth structural and signal prblems due t age. The bradcaster wh builds the cmmn site culd realize a gd rental return and an imprved signal fr his effrts. The bttm line fr bradcasters wh watch the bttm line: Put yur twer t use. Few businesses tday can bring in incme as effrtlessly as the twer business.

43 R A D I O T E L E V I S I O N C A B L E S A T E L L I T E wl. 113 N. 20 I TOP OF THE WEEK 1 FCC bund: Wing in line fr Dawsn vacancy The White Huse has tapped Washingtn cmmunicatins attrney Susan Wing t fill the FCC seat being vacated by Mimi Weyfrth Dawsn. Dawsn, wh has been nminated t be the next deputy secretary f transprtatin, is scheduled t g befre the Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee fr her cnfirmatin hearing this Tuesday (Nv 17). If all ges well, said ne cmmittee aide, Dawsn culd win full Senate cnfirmatin by the end f this week r early next. The White Huse's selectin f Wing is nt fficial, but it is seen in Washingtn cmmunicatins circles as clse t certain. Wing was nt available late last week t cnfirm her selectin. Wing, 40, is a partner with Hgan & Hartsn, a prminent Washingtn law firm with a substantial cmmunicatins practice. Amng its bradcasting and cable clients: the Natinal Cable Televisin Assciatin, Chris -Craft Industries, United Televisin, Allbrittn Cmmunicatins, Cntinental Cablevisin, Cke Cablevisin and Prime Cable. Wing's reputatin amng the Washingtn legal cmmunity is as a first -rate litigatr in cmparative hearings fr bradcast licenses at the FCC. "She was tugh," said Gene Bechtel, Bechtel & Cle, recalling a few cases in which he ppsed her. "Hgan & Hartsn has a reputatin as being tugh anyway and All indicatins are that Hllings's prpsal will nt make it int White Huse deficit- reductin plan Bradcasters may sn have reasn fr celebratin. The prspects fr defeating a cngressinal initiative that wuld levy a 2% t 5% license transfer fee n the sale f bradcast prperties brightened significantly last week, althugh industry leaders were nt resting n their laurels. Accrding t the Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters, the fee/fairness dctrine cdificatin prpsal (BROADCASTING, Oct. 26 et seq.) wn't be included in deficit -reductin package the White Huse and cngressinal leaders are cnsidering. The package, when it emerges frm the s- called "ecnmic summit," will likely replace the current budget recnciliatin measure pending in the Senate that cntains the fee prpsal and language cdifying the fairness dctrine. Despite that prgress, NAB President Eddie Fritts stpped shrt f declaring a victry. "We have cme a lng way in a shrt perid f time," Fritts said. "I'm telling yu, it's cking pretty gd." she fit int that mld." Jay Ricks, anther partner at Hgan & Hartsn, acknwledged her bradcast wrk, but said she has als represented sme cable and cmmn carrier clients. Wing is said t be as cnservative in style as in plitics. "She is definitely a Republican," said ne partner. She will have n prblem with the FCC's deregulatry agenda." Wing's name has been circulating as a pssible FCC cmmissiner since early this year. At that time, she was being mentined as a replacement fr the departing Mark Fwler. The White Huse assigned that seat t Bradley Hlmes, but Wing's name quickly reemerged when President Reagan annunced his intentin t nminate Dawsn t DOT. Wing has ne clear White Huse cnnectin.

The assciatin is shting fr 60 vtes, giving it a "super majrity" and enabling it t stp any parliamentary maneuvers by the prpsal's authr, Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee Chairman Ernest Hllings (D- S.C.). Amng the lawmakers NAB is said t still be curting: Minrity Leader Rbert Dle (R- Kan.); Alan Dixn (D- I11.); Strm Thurmnd (R- S.C.); Bennett Jhnstn (D-La.); Jhn Breaux (D-La.); William Chen (R- Me.); Harry Reid (D- Nev.); Arlen Specter (R -Pa.); Pete Wilsn (R- Calif.); Jhn Warner (R-Va.); Paul Trible (R -Va.); Sam Nunn (D-Ga. ); Nancy Kassebaum (R -Kan.); Thmas Daschle (D- S.D.), and Wyche Fwler (D-Ga.). Even Hllings admitted bradcasters were making headway. At a Senate hearing n public bradcasting (see page 49), Hllings acknwledged the bradcasters had the White Huse n their side. "They're [brad- casters] all ver up here nw and ready t kill it... and they've gt a cmmitment frm the White Huse t kill it," said Hllings. And the senatr said he has been "fighting" back. Last week Hllings sent ut a "Dear Clleague" letter hping t clear up the "disinfrmatin spewed ut by the bradcasters." The chairman lashed ut at the bradcast industry. "They're a very, very, selfish grup," he said. "Can yu imagine the audacity f saying we favr a spectrum fee fr everybdy but us," cmmented Hllings, referring t an NAB "white paper" advcating the auctin f nnbradcast spectrum. Hllings's animsity may nt bde well fr the industry's future dealings with him. "We're clearly cgnizant abut ur future relatinship with Hllings and that's why we have made it clear we are nt attacking him," said Fritts.

He identified tw legislative vehicles Dingell may use t mve the dctrine. "One is the budget recnciliatin prcess and the ther is the cntinuing reslutin.

Accrding t frmer FCC Chairman Mark Fwler, nw with Latham & Watkins, wh has been wrking against the prpsal n behalf f several clients, the White Huse is firmly ppsed t the idea.

Secnd quarter net time sales revenue was $1.75 billin versus $1.6 billin in the first quarter.

45 I I TOP OF THE WEEK I I Antiprngraphy push by White Huse Child Prtectin and Obscenity Enfrcement Act has prvisin including cable and pay TV The Reagan administratin last week made its mve n the antiprngraphy frnt. In a 49 -page, wide -ranging bill that it sent t Cngress, the administratin seeks t implement the recmmendatins f the attrney general's cmmissin n prngraphy (BROADCASTING, July 14, 1986). Fr the mst part, the bill -the Child Prtectin and Obscenity Enfrcement Act f is aimed at cmbatting sexual explitatin f children and the distributin f bscene material. But ne f the sectins President Reagan, in his letter transmitting the legislatin t Cngress, labels "Child Prtectin Amendments" deals specifically with bscenity n cable televisin and subscriptin televisin. It wuld make the utterance f bscene language r distributin f bscene matter by cable televisin r subscriptin services n televisin a criminal ffense punishable by up t tw years in prisn and a fine f up t $250,000. "Distribute" is defined bradly; it includes telecasting, bradcasting r cablecasting, by wire, micrwave r satellite. The definitin wuld als reach prducers, prgram suppliers and lcal peratrs f cable franchises. What's mre, the bill wuld make clear that states and cities are free t regulate bscene r indecent matter r subscriptin televisin statins, in a manner "nt incnsistent with the Cnstitutin." Obscenity, as defined by the Supreme Curt in Miller v. Califrnia, has three prngs: ( I ) Whether the average persn, applying cntemprary cmmunity standards, culd find that the material, taken as a whle, appeals t the prurient interest. (2) Whether the wrk depicts r describes in a patently ffensive way sexual cnduct specifically defined in the law at issue. (3) Whether the wrk, taken as a whle, lacks serius literary, artistic, plitical r scientific value. Definitins f indecency generally mit ne r mre f the prngs r phrases in them. The administratin bill last week had nt yet been intrduced. Indeed, it had nt even been referred t cmmittee. It is expected t be referred t the judiciary cmmittees f the tw huses this week, thugh with the sectin n cable and subscriptin televisin referred as well t the cmmerce cmmittees. But hearings are nt likely befre January. A spkesman fr the Senate Judiciary Cmmittee nted that its resurces wuld be cmmitted fr the next several weeks t preparing fr and hlding hearings n the nminatin f Judge Anthny Kennedy t the Supreme Curt (see page 47). A spkesman fr the Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee said it was "bked" thrugh the end f the year. There was n sign f hearings in the Huse either. One f the cngressinal findings in the bill wuld reflect a cngressinal view that "the prliferatin f cable and subscriptin televisin utlets requires effective safe- guards against bscene cable and subscriptin prgraming." Anther has it that "the harm caused by bscene televisin prgraming cmbined with the interstate nature f such prgraming requires that the federal gvernment must assist the states in their effrts t cmbat it." The President, in his letter f transmittal, says the sectin n "Cable Prn" is aimed at prtecting "thse mst vulnerable and impressinable members f ur sciety, ur children." Accrding t an analysis accmpanying the bill, the sectin n cable televisin "is designed t prvide a clear basis fr federal prsecutin f marketing bscene material n cable televisin." It ntes that there are questins as t whether varius antibscenity statutes nw in frce apply t cable televisin. The analysis cites a sectin in the Cable Cmmunicatins Plicy Act f 1984 that makes it a criminal ffense t transmit bscene matter ver a cable televisin system. But it says "ambiguities arising frm... cnflicting prvisins" in the act make it "unclear under what circumstances, if any," the federal gvernment culd act against "cable system peratrs wh permit bscene material t be cablecast." The analysis ntes that the bill's findings shw that even lcal prductin and distributin f bscene material can affect the natinal market fr televisin prgraming. Accrdingly, the analysis adds, the suggested findings "are intended t allay any questins" as t the federal gvernment's "jurisdictin t prsecute thse wh prduce and disseminate televisin prgraming n an entirely intrastate basis." What is nt clear is the reasn fr the need t bring subscriptin televisin within the reach f the bill. An antibscenity statute in the criminal cde is regarded as applying t radi and televisin; the U.S. Curt f Appeals fr the Third Circuit said as much in a case invlving the DuMnt Labratries in Hwever, the analysis indicates the bill's authrs are nt satisfied with that decisin. It ntes that the bscenity statute - written in the days befre televisin -refers t "bscene... language." And, it adds, "the transmissin f bscene pictures, unaccmpanied by any wrds r dialgue, might nt be within the scpe f the sectin." One f the pssibly mre significant aspects f the administratin bill is the prvisin that wuld free states and their plitical subdivisins t act n their wn t regulate bscene r indecent matter n cable r subscriptin televisin. The Supreme Curt has held -in a case invlving an effrt by Okla hma t ban liqur advertising n cable televisin systems -that the FCC has preempted states' regulatin f prgram cntent f cable televisin. The cmmissin is als regarded as having sle authrity ver the regulatin f televisin prgram cntent. The analysis accmpanying the bill says nthing abut that preemptin. But it says ne f the subsectins is intended t verride curt cases reserving the regulatin f cable's prgram cntent t the federal gvernment "and make it abslutely clear that bth the states Bradcasting Nv and the federal gvernment have a rle in this area." The industries invlved were nt ringing any alarm bells, at least nt yet. The Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters' senir vice president and general cunsel, Henry L. (Jeff) Baumann, said n Friday he had nt had time t fcus n the matter. And Seth Davidsn, the Natinal Cable Televisin Assciatin's assciate general cunsel, did nt see the bill as "adding anything new t the law." The analysis f the administratin bill nthwithstanding, he said NCTA believes the cable act bars bscenity n cable systems. And, he said, "we dn't have any prblem with that." As fr the act permitting states t regulate bscene r indecent material n cable r subscriptin televisin, he nted that the bill adds the phrase "in a manner which is nt incnsistent with the Cnstitutin." All city and state effrts thus far t regulate indecency n cable televisin have been ruled uncnstitutinal by varius curts, including the Supreme Curt. The high curt, hwever, has upheld the regulatin f indecent speech n bradcasting. USA Netwrk buys `Miami Vice' Episdes t air n basic cable netwrk starting in fall 1988 MCA TV ended its search fr a hme fr the back -end strip f Miami Vice last week by selling it t the USA Netwrk. The deal with USA, which is wned by MCA Inc. and Paramunt, ends a difficult chapter fr MCA TV t sell the ne -hur series in syndicatin in a persistently tugh marketplace.

In additin, USA last week said it made the first purchase f episdes f a series frm anther cable netwrk. Beginning fall 1989, US Awil l carry 39 episdes f The Hitchhiker, a half -hur suspense anthlgy that nw runs n HBO. Kenin said that series likely will fit int the netwrk's Saturday night

The shw, prduced fr NBC, has a reprted prductin budget f abut $1.3 millin per episde. NBC reprtedly pays a license fee f apprximately $850,000 fr tw runs f each episde, which leaves MCA with a $450,000 deficit per shw. This wuld amunt t $41 millin fr the 92 hurs prduced fr the seasn. Sme industry bservers speculated that added revenues frm the USA deal will nt be enugh t put the shw int the black. Sid Scheinberg, MCA president and chief perating fficer. has said previusly that MCA will nt cntinue t prduce shws, particularly higher cst ne -hur actin -adventures, at deficits. Last week, Scheinberg declined cmment n the impact f the sale t USA. MCA TV began marketing Miami Vice in syndicatin nearly a year ag, but encuntered cncern by statins wh wrried that the shw might appear dated by the time it aired. MCATV reduced its marketing effrts abut a mnth after NATPE and initiated talks with several cable services and CBS, fr use in its late night schedule (BROAD- CASTING, Feb. 16). The market has remained a difficult ne fr syndicatrs. "All the hurs ut there are still having a hard time, but Miami Vice stands alne with the severity f its prblems," said Dick Kurlander, vice president f prgraming fr Petry Televisin. Thse prblems include the shw's trendiness and a lack f gd plts. Hwever, pr sales f hur shws in syndicatin has been gd news fr cable. USA's Kenin said the result has been "kncks n ur dr all the time" frm syndicatrs. Kenin des nt view these shws as damaged gds. USA nw carries tw ff -netwrk hurs- Airwlf and Riptide that did nt sell in syndicatin. Thse shws perfrm t USA's satisfactin in the ratings, he said. TVB tackles prblems f newspapers, new business Annual cnventin hears new president Mll exhrt industry t becme mre marketing riented Wrapping up what mst agree has been a pretty lackluster year fr televisin sales (estimated revenue gains: netwrks, 4%; bth natinal spt and lcal, 6%), the 33d annual gathering f the Televisin Bureau f Advertising met in Atlanta last week. Registered attendance ttaled 925, dwn frm 990 a year ag. The cnferees appeared preccupied with tw issues, including wresting a greater share f lcal retail advertising frm the newspaper medium, which has crnered abut 80% f that business. The sales executives were als cncerned with bsting new business develpment effrts, n bth the lcal and natinal level (see belw). As he prepares t take ver the helm f the TVB, president -elect William Mll said that under his leadership, the bureau's cntinuing gal will be t increase televisin advertising revenues, t be mre "custmer fcused, high perfrmance and grwth riented." The industry, he said, must becme mre marketing riented -that is, creating new surces f business -and nt just "mere schleppers f spts." Lking t the future, Mll said it was "prbable" the industry wuld at least duble its revenue base by the year The televisin industry will underg pr- Phil Dnahue appeared n videtape at TVB meeting fund change in the years leading up t the next century, said Mll. High definitin televisin and direct bradcasting services will be a reality by then, and a benefit t the marketers f televisin. "The seeds f ur future prsperity lie in the gardens f DBS and HDTV. Can yu imagine the impact f cmmerical televisin advertising n three - by -five rati, and 1,125 lines? Duble the fidelity. What impact!" If televisin expects t gain a greater piece f lcal retail advertising, said Mll, "we must knw mre abut their businesses. They must knw mre abut ur business. It's up t us t make it happen." But TVB is als charged with fstering natinal sales effrts and Mll dutifully stressed that thse effrts have t be redubled. "We'd better nt ignre the pprtunities t develp natinal spt," said Mll. "We must make it easier t buy. We must becme mre astute in target marketing t meet ur advertisers' needs." Marketing the "value" f televisin, said Mll, "must becme a way f life at ur televisin statins." Outging TVB Chairman Blake Byrne als stressed the industry's cncern with revenues, and where they will cme frm in the future. At a recent TVB -spnsred meeting f grup statin executives in New Yrk, Byrne said f all the cncerns discussed, "the majr ne was revenues." In additin, said Byrne, the executives at the meeting were cncerned that "smeday the large increases we've seen recently in ur tp categries will slw dwn r stp altgether. And if their well runs dry, what will bail us ut then? Develpmental dllars are the key." Rice exits with praise fr TVB, calls fr new business develpment In his final address t TVB members, utging President Rger Rice said develping new business "is the key t ur future, especially in the years beynd 1988." Next year, said Rice, televisin advertising will grw abut 12% t $26.5 billin, bsted by electin campaign advertising and the Olympics. Nw is the time, he said, t "lay the grundwrk fr 1989, when grwth will slip back t single -digit increases. "Business develpment effrts, bth lcally and natinally, will be the difference between statins that ver -perfrm industry averages and thse that fall shrt." Rice cited the effrts f TVB this year t cntact almst 150 advertiser and industry grups. He said that TVB's Natinal Sales Advisry Cmmittee credits the bureau's effrts with "generating sme $40 millin t $50 millin dllars in new spt dllars fr televisin this year." Rice referred t new sales tls the bureau is develping, such as the recently prduced "Case fr Market -by- Market Televisin" videtape, in which several majr advertisers endrse televisin. He als pitched a new TVB prductin, "Televisin: The Return n Investment Advantage." Narrated by Phil Dnahue, the videtape presentatin features a number f natinal and lcal advertisers, including Nestle and J.C. Penny, explaining the return, in prduct sales, n their investment in TV advertising. Rice reprted that TVB's budget fr fiscal year 1988 is up 2% t $7.8 millin, while membership is nw at 630 statins. Fr 1987, The TVB Budget was $7.62 millin, with expenses ttaling $7.58 millin. On the eve f his departure, Rice said that thrugh his 13 years as TVB president, "if there is ne thing f which I'm mst prud, it is the increased invlvement f yu, ur members, with TVB during these 13 years...increased input int TVB frm the televisin industry is what has made us better, Rice Bradcasting Nv

On a final nte, Rice said, "I tk this jb 13 years ag fr the challenge and the pprtunity t d smething f value fr televisin-a business that's dne s much fr me. I hpe I've succeeded in making just a little bit f difference. I knw I've had fun!" Cncern viced ver lack f attentin t natinal spt Cmplaints emerged at last week's TVB cnference that nt ne sessin was devted t the tpic f natinal spt sales, seen by sme as perhaps the biggest issue in statin sales. At ne TVB sessin last week, WLWT(TV) Cincinnati's Anthny Kiernan said it was "surprising" TVB had nt scheduled a sessin addressing natinal spt and the rle f televisin representatives, in light f declining revenue increases in that categry. Kiernan said the subject was "the mst bvius tpic" amng current televisin sales issues that need addressing. The key questins, said Kiernan, are hw the industry can develp new natinal business and what rle the different players invlved- including reps, statins and the TVB -shuld play in develping that business. Since 1980, natinal spt dllars have accunted fr abut 29.5% f all televisin TOP OF THE WEEK advertising dllars. In the same perid, the lcal share f the pie has increased frm 26% t just ver 29% f all televisin advertising revenue. In 1988, fr the first time, ttal lcal TV advertising is expected t surpass ttal natinal TV spt advertising. William Mll, TVB president- elect, said Kiernan's pint was "duly nted." Added Mll: "We've been preaching at TVB that the future f ur business is lcal." But he added, "we damn sure can't ignre the develpment f natinal business."

Reagan hpes third time's the charm fr high curt pick President nminates San Francisc appeals curt judge fr Supreme Curt after Ginsburg is undne fllwing revelatin by NPR's Ttenberg f past marijuana use Judge Anthny Kennedy f the U.S. Curt f Appeals fr the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisc, represents President Reagan's third effrt t fill the Supreme Curt seat left vacant in June when Assciate Justice Lewis F. Pwell Jr. retired. And thse cncerned primarily with Kennedy's views regarding the media apparently have little reasn t be cncerned. He is viewed as a judicial cnservative wh hlds generally the same strng First Amendment views as thse espused by Pwell. Indeed, a preliminary check int Kennedy's backgrund by the Reprters Cmmittee fr Freedm f the Press indicates, accrding t the cmmittee's executive directr, Jane Kirtley, that Kennedy "lks very gd." Kennedy, wh has been n the appeals curt bench fr 12 years, appeared with the President in the White Huse press rm last Wednesday (Nv. 11) as Reagan annunced his intentin t nminate the 51- year-ld jurist. It was the type f scene that had been played ut twice befre since the summer. First, it was the President and Judge Rbert Brk f the U.S. Curt f Appeals in Washingtn, whse nminatin the Senate last mnth rejected by a vte f 58 t 42. Then, it was the President and Judge Duglas Ginsburg, Brk's clleague n the D.C. circuit, wh withdrew his name frm cnsideratin n Nv 7 in the midst f the cntrversy that blew up ver his acknwledgment that he had smked marijuana, bth as a cllege student in the 1960's and in the 1970's when he was n the Harvard law schl faculty. Ginsburg's acknwledgment fllwed the disclsure f his use f the drug, nt by the FBI, which had cnducted fur backgrund checks n him in cnnectin with his appintment t high -level gvernment psts, but by Natinal Public Radi. NPR's legal affairs crrespndent, Nina Ttenberg, had learned f Ginsburg's invlvement with marijuana during her wn backgrund check. Ginsburg's statement cnfirming his use f the drug was issued late in the afternn f Nv 5, after Ttenberg had called the Justice Department fr cmment n the infrmatin she had develped and shrtly befre she was t g n the air with the first Kennedy (I) and Reagan Bradcasting Nv f tw reprts n her findings. As fr Kennedy, he has been described as a mderate -t- cnservative jurist. And Bruce Fein, the frmer FCC general cunsel wh is nw a legal cnsultant, said Kennedy des nt have "a judicial philsphy; he decides each case n its facts." But he wuld be mre likely than Pwell t uphld federal preemptin f state regulatin, said Fein. "He wuld read the Cable Cmmunicatins Plicy Act mre bradly than wuld Pwell." As fr freedm f speech and press cases, Fein said, "he will ech the views f Lewis Pwell, wh was a staunch defender f the First Amendment, very wary f putting restrictins n speech regarding bscenity and prngraphy." The Reprters Cmmittee's Kirtley had nt had much time t research Kennedy's recrd n media issues; althugh she began the prject several weeks ag, when Kennedy, alng with Ginsburg, was n the shrt list f pssible nminees the White Huse cmpiled after the Senate rejected Brk's nminatin, she stpped when Ginsburg was chsen. But Kirtley fund sme prir restraint, libel and freedm -f- infrmatin cases in which Kennedy had written the appeals curt's pinins, and in all f which the curt had cme dwn n the side f the media. 'Iiv prir -restraint cases invlved bradcasters. In Gldblum v. NBC, in 1978, a frmer executive, Stanley Gldblum, wh had been cnvicted f securities and insurance fraud had sught a curt rder barring

48 TOP OF THE WEEK I NBC frm airing a dcudrama n the case, Billin Dllar Bubble. Gldblum alleged the prgram was sht thrugh with errrs and wuld jepardize his effrt t btain a parle. A few hurs befre the prgram was scheduled fr bradcast, n June 7, 1978, the district curt judge in the case rdered NBC t turn ver a tape f the prgram fr his review, and when the NBC lawyer refused, n First Amendment grunds, had him jailed. A few hurs later, in respnse t an appeal by NBC, a three judge panel f the ninth circuit rdered the lawyer released, and permitted the prgram t be aired. Later, the panel's pinin, written by Kennedy, was issued. It said the trial curt's rder wuld have been an impermissible interference with the editrial prcess. And in 1985, Kennedy wrte the pinin in which a panel upheld a CBS request fr an rder directing a district curt t unseal pretrial dcuments relating t the criminal prsecutin f aut maker Jhn DeLrean's c- defendant. "We begin with the presumptin that the public Cnference examines prtectins fr new infrmatin technlgies A key member f a Huse telecmmunicatins panel last week warned bradcasters, newspaper publishers and cable peratrs t stp turning ecnmic turf fights int First Amendment battles. In an appearance taped fr mre than 150 cmmunicatins industry fficials at a First Amendment cnference in San Dieg, Rep. Al Swift (D -Wash.) said the industry risks alienating lawmakers by placing its ecnmic interests first. Swift, wh serves n the Huse subcmmittee n telecmmunicatins and finance, was frced t cancel his trip after a sudden snw strm hit the natin's capital. He sent his message by satellite t the cnference which fcused n "First Amendment: Third Century" Spnsred by the San Dieg Cmmunicatins Cuncil and Califrnia State University, San Dieg, the cnference reviewed the current state f the First Amendment and related issues including whether cnstitutinal prtectins will be applied t infrmatin delivered by new technlgies. "As we prgress in the next few years, technlgy is ging t lengthen the arm f all kinds f peple wh have legitimate First Amendment prtectin," Swift said. "But there is ging J be an enrmus temptatin...t try and wrap any ecnmic desire these entities have in a First Amendment clak in rder t give a false superirity t an argument." The result, he said, will be t "cheapen it t the pint that public plicy makers are nt taking it seriusly." Swift called fr restraint by thse "wh wuld seek a First Amendment argument as a basic defense as we mve int the turf battles f the future." He questined whether legislative effrts by the natin's newspaper publishers t keep telephne cmpanies ut and the press have a right f access t criminal prceedings and dcuments filed therein," Kennedy wrte. (Kennedy als jined in an pinin, in 1982, affirming the right f the public and press t attend bth a pretrial hearing n suppressin f evidence and the selectin f a jury. The Ls Angeles Times had appealed a trial judge's ruling denying access t bth. The panel said the evidence -suppressin hearing and the selectin f the jury were presumptively pen and that the trial curt was wrng in clsing them.) In a case decided by a panel f the Ninth Circuit earlier this year, Kennedy indicated an unwillingness t side with libel plaintiffs when pinin -n matter hw extreme -is invlved. The suit had been filed against the frmer mayr f Santa Mnica, Calif., Ruth Yanatta Gldway, by a plitical ppnent named Ilse Kch. Gldway had likened the German -brn wman t "a well -knwn Nazi war criminal named Ilse Kch during Wrld War II." Kennedy said the statement was First Amendment sptlighted f electrnic infrmatin delivery services is an apprpriate First Amendment argument. The lawmaker als recalled that ABC, CBS and NBC argued the First Amendment t fend ff cngressinal interference after the 1980 presidential electins. Swift said that the early electin utcme predictins frm netwrk exit plls frced President Carter t cncede, harming sme clse state and lcal races in the West. The netwrks drpped the cnstitutinal defense and acknwledged "serius questins abut the jurnalistic prpriety" f the L-r: BROADCASTING magazine's Edwin James: Bill Bggs and Manly Huff f Gray, Cary, Ames & Frye, San Dieg; Califrnia State's Linel Van Deerlin and Henry Geller f Washingtn Center fr Public Plicy Research "nthing mre than a vicius slur" but nt libelus because it was an expressin f pinin rather than fact. Kennedy wrte, "The law f defamatin teaches...that in sme instances speech must seek its wn refutatin withut interventins by the curts." And in Lng v. IRS, a freedm-f- infrmatin case, Kennedy wrte fr a unanimus panel that in 1979 adpted a brad interpretatin f an amendment t the FOI Act t require the IRS t divulge infrmatin sught by a taxpayer. The panel ruled that the material shuld be released as lng as infrmatin identifying the taxpayer was deleted. Hwever, ther circuits have adpted cnflicting interpretatins f the amendment, and last week the Supreme Curt affirmed a narrwer view -denying release f the data the IRS was required t prvide in Lng -that had been taken by the D.C. circuit. That circuit's pinin was written by Judge Antnin Scalia in May 1986, shrtly befre his elevatin t the high curt. practice when they agreed t stp it, he said. David Laventhl, president f the Times Mirrr C., said that while the First Amendment will have a "durable future" as far as prtecting the rights f newspapers and ther print mediums, "the shape f ther media in the future is much less certain." Laventhl said the "free flw f infrmatin in thse media which this [First ment] cnference is fcusing n is certainly less secure" than print. The issue is a majr cncern t crpratins such as Times Mirrr, a diversified me- L -r: FCC Cmmissiner James Quell; cnference c- chairmen Herman Land and Sig Mickelsn, and Merrill Lessley. dean f the Cllege f Prfessinal Studies and Fine Art.

As Laventhl sees it, "traditinal prtectins shuld apply, even if the medium is untraditinal." That view recently was reinfrced in a curt case in New Yrk where the judge ruled that an n -line cmputer service was entitled t the same cnstitutinal prtectin as a newspaper. Time Inc. Chairman J. Richard Munr lashed ut at the Reagan administratin and accused it f clamping dwn n First Amendment freedms and presenting a threat t the pen marketplace f ideas. Delivering the pening night's keynte address, he accused the administratin f being hypcritical by favring press restrictins while encuraging less gvernment regulatin. "Increasingly, the emphasis is n what the peple shuldn't knw and the media shuldn't reprt," he said. "I find it irnic that sme f the advcates f these restrictins are the same peple wh, at least when it cmes t the ecnmy, speak abut getting gvernment ff ur backs. "But when it cmes t the free market f ideas and infrmatin, they seem t take an ppsite tack: putting gvernment n peple's backs with their hands ver their eyes," he said. While issues such as natinal security must be cnsidered, Munr said that "the real challenge in a demcracy like urs is t limit these ccasins as strictly as we can, t insure that the nrmal flw f facts and pinins is as pen and as candid as we can humanly make it." Munr said this administratin has shwn a "special zeal" in its attempts t decide what the American peple shuld knw. "Frm the exclusin f the press frm the Grenada invasin t the secret wars f the CIA, t the disinfrmatin campaign sur- i TOP OF THE WEEK runding the raid n Libya, t the whle sad, srdid mess f Irangate -where even the President was suppsedly kept in the dark - we've seen a grwing passin fr secrecy and manipulatin... he said. Huse passes unifrm pll clsing bill Swift bill wuld shut vting bths at 9 p.m. (NYT): Senate actin n cmpanin measure uncertain One cngressinal answer t declining vter turnut in presidential electins -a unifrm pll clsing law -made its way thrugh the Huse last week. Nw it mves t the Senate, where it has fared prly in the past. The bill (H.R. 435) -a respnse t the age f televisin and exit plling in which prjectins f winners based n results in the East are knwn befre the plls clse in the rest f the cuntry-wuld have the plls clse at 9 p.m. eastern standard time in the eastern, central, muntain and Pacific time znes. Alaska and Hawaii wuld be exempt. Passage f the measure wuld discharge Cngress's respnsibility under an agreement with ABC, CBS and NBC. They have lng pressed fr a unifrm pll clsing bill as an answer t cmplaints that their prjectins f the winner in presidential electins, based n early returns, held dwn vter turnut. They, alng with Westinghuse Bradcasting C. and Turner Bradcasting, agreed in 1985 nt t use exit plling- interviews with vters leaving the vting bth -t prject winners in the 1986 midterm electins until the plls in a state clsed. That, said Al Swift (D- Wash.), chief spnsr f the bill in flr debate preceding final Huse passage last week, "slved half the prblem." The ther half, he said, is that in a large cuntry, divided int several time znes, it is pssible fr actual vte ttals in states where plls have clsed t reveal the utcme f an electin while plls elsewhere in the cuntry are still pen. "Only a unifrm pll clsing time can prevent that," Swift said. Under the legislatin, the plls wuld clse at 9 p.m. in the East, 8 p.m. lcal time in the central time zne and 7 p.m. lcal time in the muntain states. T enable plls in the Pacific time zne t clse at 7 p.m. instead f 6 p.m. lcal time, daylight saving time in thse states wuld be extended fr an additinal tw weeks during presidential electin years. Representative Bill Frenzel (R- Minn.), an ppnent f the measure, was nt impressed. He said the bill "is attacking a windmill, a prblem that is nt a prblem." He said there is n credible study that indicates vters n the West Cast refrain frm vting because f reprts f vting results n the East Cast. He called the bill "a Rube Gldberg device" that wuld cause cnfusin and, cnsequently, "disenfranchise - ment" f vters. Swift's psitin prevailed, but nt by an verwhelming margin -208 t 189, with 36 members nt vting. Nw the questin is whether the measure will d better in the Senate than it did in the last Cngress, when the Huse passed a unifrm pll clsing bill nly t see it die in cmmittee in the Senate. Senatr Dn Riegle (D- Mich.) has intrduced a bill (S. 182) identical t Swift's in the Senate, and it has been referred t the Rules and Administratin Cmmittee. Aides t the cmmittee chairman, Wendell Frd (D -Ky.), say hearings will be held, but nt until early next year. The bill has nine c- spnsrs, including three wh are members f the Rules and Administratin Cmmittee -Senatrs Patrick Mynihan (D- N.Y.), Daniel Inuye (D- Hawaii) and Brck Adams (D- Wash.). Frd has yet t indicate his psitin n the bill. Public bradcasters lking fr a sure thing Christensen. Ledwig, Baker. thers tell Senate hearing that service's number -ne pririty is a sufficient and dependable surce f mney Public bradcasters brught their wish lists t the Senate Cmmunicatins Subcmmittee last week, and at the tp f mst f them was a plea fr what Public Bradcasting Service President Bruce Christensen called "a reliable and adequate surce f funding." "Securing such funding is the great unfinished business f ur enterprise," Christensen said at the hearing. "It is the key t sustaining prgraming excellence, preserving the institutin's nncmmercial nature and extending its usefulness int hmes, schls and wrkplaces acrss the natin." Mst f the witnesses endrsed the Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee's beleaguered prpsal t prvide public bradcasting with "a reliable and adequate surce f funding" thrugh a 2%e- t -5'/c fee n the sale f FCC licenses by bradcasters and ther users f the electrmagnetic spectrum. Effrts t enact the fee, Christensen said, are the "mst imprtant and curageus steps in 20 years t slve this prblem." The Cmmerce Cmmittee, chaired by Ernest Hllings (D- S.C.), is the parent f Daniel Inuye's (D- Hawaii) Cmmunicatins Subcmmittee. Dnald Ledwig, president f the Crpratin fr Public Bradcasting, in his testimny, called the transfer fee an "innvative step" tward the establishment f a "secure and stable surce f federal funding." Bill Baker, president f WNET-TV New Yrk and frmer president f Grup W Televisin, called the fee prpsal "nthing shrt f a strke f genius. Yu may have fund ne f the keys t ur survival." Duglas Bennet, president f Natinal Public Radi, said NPR is encuraging its listeners by mail t supprt the measure. "When the [tranfer fee] is enacted int law, the fund will enable us t fulfill ur missin f expanding service t all Americans and it insures that public bradcasters can cntinue t build an infrmatinal and cultural service fr ur cuntry." Despite Bennet's apparent ptimism, the transfer fee is mre a questin f "if' than "when." Cmmercial bradcasters, led by the Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters, have apparently succeeded in derailing the fee, and, as f last Friday, it was unclear whether Cngress wuld cme up with an alternative that wuld insure the permanent, lng -term funding that public bradcasting wants. As an alternative t the fee, the NAB has prpsed an excise tax n televisin sets, radi receivers and VCR's (see stry, page 130). At the hearing, Hllings asked fr alternatives t his fee and the NAB's excise tax, but received little respnse. Jhn Wicklein, directr f the Kiplinger Midcareer Prgram in Public Affairs Reprting at Ohi State Uni- Bradcasting Nv

50 t versity Schl f Jurnalism, wh culd nt make the hearing, submitted written testimny suggesting three ther alternatives - an imprt tax n TV sets manufactured verseas, a levy n the grss revenues f cmmercial bradcasters and a spectrum fee. Bennet was as negative n NAB's excise tax as he was psitive n the transfer fee. "The excise tax is regressive," he said. "It has all the disadvantages f a natinal sales tax." Hllings urged public bradcasters t cunter the effrts f their cmmercial cunterparts and lbby fr the transfer fee. We need t fire up these senatrs," he said. "We need fr yu t put n the pressure like the cmmercial bradcasters. They are all ver up here nw and they are ready t kill it." The witnesses agreed that a surce f adequate funding beynd the reach f the annual cngressinal budget prcess wuld have manifld benefits fr public bradcasting. Indeed, Christensen and Ledwig see it as a kind f panacea. Adequate funding is the key t prducing "quality prgraming," Christensen said in his testimny. "Withut it, public televisin will cntinue t have shining mments, but it will be difficult t sustain its prgraming excellence, increase its editrial diversity, expand the audience it serves r remain respnsive t unique lcal needs by prviding custm -tailred lcal prgram services, as mandated by Cngress." I TOP OF THE WEEK I It is als the key t preserving public bradcasting's nncmmercial nature, he said. Because f financial uncertainties, sme statins have turned t "enhanced underwriting" and put themselves in the awkward psitin f being "a bit t cmmercial." Such funding will als insulate public bradcasters frm attempts t influence their prgraming, Christensen said. "Withut it, there is always the danger that... statins and prducers, desperate fr funding, may be tempted t fashin their prgrams t appeal t a crprate r gvernmental entity that cntrls the purse -strings." In additin, Christensen said, such funding is needed fr prgram prmtin and advertising and t insure that public bradcasting achieves its gal f serving every hme in the cuntry. "Indeed, a majr issue currently cnfrnting public televisin is the replacement r refurbishment f its existing satellite intercnnectin system." Ledwig and Christensen als said public bradcasting has t keep up technlgically. "Public televisin and radi must cntinue t serve the natin by prviding the highest technical quality in ur prgrams, whether high definitin and stere televisin, r digital audi, interactive vide fr educatin r direct bradcast satellite distributin f classrm instructin t remte schlhuses," Ledwig said in his testimny. Bennet had just ne specific request: in- crease the prtin f a public statin's revenue that cmes frm CPB frm tday's 15% t abut 25%. Such an increase will "reinfrce the statin's ability t prduce lcally," he said. "Strnger lcal prductin will mean better material fr inclusin in ur natinal prgram vehicles. It will mean larger lcal audiences thrugh the day, mre supprt frm listeners and underwriters and a strnger base f financial supprt fr natinal prgraming." Attempts t influence public bradcasters' prgraming decisins was the secndary tpic f the hearing. In respnse t a questin frm Inuye, Ledwig said reprts f undue influence were "exaggerated. The rhetric n that subject far exceeds the recrd," he said. "I have nt seen the intrusin that is smetimes seen in the media." "The insulatin frm pliticizatin is exceedingly great," said Baker. "CPB des a gd jb f that." Christensen was nt s sure. He said CPB itself has intruded int prgraming decisin - making and expressed cncern that its prpsal t analyze the cntent f prgraming may have a "chilling effect" n future prgraming effrts. Befre leaving the hearing, Hllings presented a fanciful slutin t public bradcasting's mney prblems. "I think if I culd be king fr a day I'd appint Jesse Jacksn as the head f public bradcasting," he said. "Then yu wuld get sme mney." I Examining ethics at SDX /SPJ "The Chicag Experience" was what the 79th natinal cnventin f the Sciety f Prfessinal Jurnalists /Sigma Delta Chi prmised its participants last week, and given the plitical climate at the meeting, that was what they gt. Mre than 900 jurnalists and students wh attended the cnference were ffered an array f prfessinal wrkshps - 41 in all, ranging frm reprter- editr relatinships t cvering the lcal angle n internatinal terrrism -alng with trips t lcal newsrms and bureaus. They als encuntered a heated cntrversy ver an ethics clause in the SPJ /SDX charter which calls fr the sciety "t actively censure" fellw members fr vilating its cde f ethics. The debate, which threatens t split the rganizatin, cmes at a time when SPJ /SDX is rerganizing its structure and dues t try t stem declining membership and revenue. The natinal bard has recmmended deleting the cntrversial censure prvisin. Rbert H. Wills, president f the sciety and editr f the Milwaukee Sentinel, said in his message t the meeting that the prvisin has "serius legal implicatins t the philsphical aspects f censring jurnalists." Delegates were scheduled t vte Saturday (Nv 14) n the measure. On the ther side f the issue, Casey Buckr, envirnmental reprter fr the Chicag Tribune, and frmer head f SDX's ethics cmmittee, argued fr the prvisin, saying that "gd jurnalists shuld pint ut bad cases." Despite their differences f pinin n this issue, bth sides agreed that mre emphasis must be placed n ethics at the cllege and entry- level, as well as in the sciety's prfessinal chapters. That feeling was reflected in the discussins f nearly a dzen f the panels. James K. Plk, investigative reprter fr NBC News, was a panelist at "Private Lives, Public Figures and Others," a discussin that centered n reprters' privilege and ethical cnsideratins. Tw separate sessins were ffered n "dealing with ethical issues under deadline pressure," ne fr students and ne fr wrking jurnalists. "Lunch, Dinner, Disney Wrld and Other Freebees: Jurnalism, Public Relatins, and Ethics," dealt with the cntrversial free trips fr jurnalists t Disney Nbrld last year, ethics cdes, sprts tickets, free mvie passes and the plight f the small newspaper that cannt affrd t cver everything its editrs might like t. A sessin featuring Tm Olipant, plitical reprter fr the Bstn Glbe, and Jim McGee, the investigative reprter fr the Miami Herald wh bserved Dnna Rice in the cmpany f Gary Hart at Hart's Washingtn twnhuse, was standing rm nly. Mre than 400 peple attended the discussin which examined the ethics f stakeut jurnalism and the rules and ethical guidelines fr cvering plitical candidates. One f the mre cntrversial issues, drug screening in the newsrm, featured a spirited debate n the cnstitutinality f drug testing that was mderated by James Duncan, directr f emplye relatins fr the Ls Angeles Times, which requires drug testing as part f its hiring prcess. "The gal is t prvide pay and benefits better than any ther similar cmpany and we made a business decisin in 1985 that allws prvisins fr drug testing," he said. "It prvides a safer place t wrk and it cuts lsses." Anther panelist, Greg Bean, wh was fired frm a Freeprt, Ill., paper fr refusing t take a drug test, said "drug testing with n prbable cause is an utrage." Other panel discussins ranged frm ways t tackle the jb market, t hw t write better bradcast news, t hw technlgy affects delivery systems. And in an effrt t leave n cntrversial stne unturned, the cnference even ffered a sessin n "hw jurnalists lve, wrk, lve wrk and try t make lve wrk." Bradcasting Nv

It was a Sunday night and wxrz -TV had a skeletn news crew Immediately the crew implemented a pre -planned disaster prcedure. News management was ntified and additinal staff called in. The statin was n the air with a reprt within minutes, and a crew was at the crash site, with thers sent t the airprt, area hspitals, t a nearby neighbrhd strewn with wreckage, the car rental building struck by the plane, the FAA, and ther lcatins. Cverage included live satellite reprts frm Minneaplis, hme f Nrthwest, and Phenix, the planes destinatin. The key t the cverage, said the statin, was planning. The disaster plan is a "layering prcess" that determines wh is t be called and in what rder. It allwed the statin peple t be in the right place at the right time and t air many exclusive reprts, including, accrding t the statin, that there was nly ne survivr (4- year -ld Cecelia Cichan). Als part f the latering plan is assigning ne reprter t handle all the calls frm utside media. Withut a persn t handle such calls, said the statin, prducers and the assignment desk wuld be tied up with utside calls. On March 4, a turbprp cmmuter plane crashed and burned while trying t land at Metrplitan airprt. Again, with preplanned assignments, the statin was first n the air with reprts f the crash and first with live pictures frm the scene. Cverage included exclusive hme vide f the accident. When lightning sparked the wrst fire seasn in Califrnia histry, itxrv(tv) Sacrament, Calif., carried extensive live cverage ver a 10- day perid. Newscasts included up t five live reprts in a single bradcast, cvering fires frm the Sierra t the Nrthern Cast and the state's fire cmmand headquarters.

WSPA -TV has used the "Satellite 7" t cver events in Kentucky, Nrth and Suth Carlina, and Flrida. During the Ppe's visit t Clumbia, S.C., WSPA -TV sent 30 emplyes t Clumbia and established a skybth at Williams -Brice Stadium, where the Ppe held services. The statin used the "Satellite 7" t prvide viewers with virtual "wall t wall" cverage, suspended nly fr 40 minutes during which the Ppe was in private meetings. In January, a majr snw strm paralyzed much f upstate Suth Carlina. The strm, which dumped 11 inches f snw n the area, left many rads impassable, created pwer utages and clsed schls and businesses. WSPA -TV expanded its cverage thrughut the day t keep viewers updated n which rads were in peratin, which schls and businesses were pen and the effrts f the pwer cmpany t restre electricity WsPA -rv's sprts cverage has been greatly enhanced by "Satellite 7 ". When the University f Suth Carlina plays ftball, the statin can drive the truck t the site and prvide highlights immmediately fllwing the game. High schl ftball cverage has been expanded as well. Because WSPA-TV'S market is s large, it wuld be impssible t have the "Satellite 7" prvide highlights frm the varius high schl games. The statin, therefre, has the truck driven t a central lcatin, and phtgraphers bring their vide t the truck t be fed back t the statin. Mnths f planning went int WMAO -TV Chicag's cverage f the primary and mayral races. On primary electin night, the statin preempted the netwrk (NBC) t prvide live cverage at 8-11:45 p.m. On the evening f the mayral race, the cverage lasted frm 8 p.m. t 1 a.m. Cverage was anchred by Carl Marin and Rn Magers, with reprters statined at varius wards and a panel f experts available fr cmmentary, including Chicag Tribune clumnist Mike Ryk. The statin als bradcast tw half -hur news specials n the mayral electin. Drafting the Debate analyzed the candidates' perfrmance n a televised debate, and Where They Stand, which aired tw days befre the electins, gave viewers a last lk at the candidates and the issues. Anther wmw -TV stry turned quickly frm spt cverage t expse. Fr years, law enfrcement agents had been trying t shut dwn what they believed t be a majr narctics ring perating ut f the headquarters f a Chicag gang. Marin was tipped t a raid by federal and lcal agents, and was the first reprter n the scene as agents uncvered a cache f weapns alng with sme drug paraphenalia. While the stry seemed t end there. Marin discvered that the gang was stckpiling weapns in an effrt t sell their services as terrrists t Libyan leader Muammar Khaddafi. Marin reprted the Khaddafi cnnectin n the 6 p.m. newscast. By 8 p.m., six surces had cnfirmed the stry and added infrmatin that was incrprated int the 10 p.m. newscast and the 6 p.m. and 10 p m casts the fllwing day. NBC Netwrk News picked up the stry, as well as Chicag papers. Three mnths later, the U.S. Attrney's ffice indicted the gang's leader, Jeff Frt, and three ther members f the rganizatin. The stry wn a 1986 Peter Lisagr award fr excellence in televisin reprting. Tw trains cllided in a ppulus sectin f Pittsburgh. The resulting fire and chemical leak began a tw -day vigil. Because the accident was n a Saturday, wrae -TV Pittsburgh was wrking with a skeletn staff. Reprter Stu Emry and a phtgrapher were dispatched. They determined the seriusness and called fr a backup crew. Within a half hur, the statin began live cverage. An expert in hazardus chemicals was brught in t assess the danger. Live cut -ins were scheduled thrughut the first afternn and evening. WTAE -TV stayed with the stry as emergency fficials tried t decide n evacuatin prcedures.

62 hur. The statin was cited by the Pittsburgh City Cuncil fr its cverage. With its ppulatin 60 -plus percent Cathlic, the Ppe's visit was an imprtant stry. The statin sent reprter Dn Cannn t all 10 stps n the tur. Cannn reprted live frm each stp via satellite. On July 2, 1987, viewers gt a glimpse f a trnad tuching dwn in Adams cunty, Cl., as KMGH -TV Denver reprter and helicpter pilt Peter Peelgrane and phtgrapher Bill Hitchcck flew clse enugh t recrd the funnel. The statin interrupted prgraming t warn nearby residents f the trnad's path. The vide was requested by gvernment weathercasters fr use in their training exercises. Again, Peelgrane was first n the scene when a fire brke ut at Denver's Mile High stadium, hme f the Denver Brncs. The statin prvided live vide cut -ins during the afternn. KMGH -TV cvered live the events surrunding the ambush f tw Denver pliceman. One f the fficers was killed in the incident, which initially appeared t be a dmestic disturbance, and later was fund t have been a man lying in wait fr the fficers after placing a call fr assistance. Reprters Dave Minshall and Lynn Setzer cvered the stry live fr the late news and remained n the air as the plice surrunded the huse and eventually sht their way in. Trnad n KMGH -TV Take the publisher f an award -winning weekly and his staff f reprters, and add an editr - directr, a part-time vdiegrapher, a set and crew, then split the cmmercial time. The result is a barter newscast, Newsline, frm WFHL- TV Decatur, III., a nnprfit cmmercial religius statin with a ttal budget f abut $500,000. The apprach f publisher- prducer -anchr Paul Osbrne t the prgram is t cncentrate n Decatur news (the market is Springfield- Decatur -Champaign) in a Night - line style frmat. The result is spt news cverage plus live studi guests. The prgram airs live at 5 p.m., and is repeated at 11 p.m., althugh the statin airs live cut -ins r ges live at 11 p.m. if the ccasin warrants. When the Decatur Educatin Assciatin went n strike against the schl bard, News - line devted minutes nightly t live interviews with the principal negtiatrs n bth sides. The statin was the first t have an interview with the schl bard president, and did several lcatin stries. When the strike ended, the statin aired an hur -lng special featuring the leaders f bth sides. The statin was cmmended by bth the Schl Bard and the DEA fr its cverage. Change is the bywrd at wrvrtrv) Tampa, Fla. Perhaps mst prminent was the expansin f its 5 p.m. news frm ne -half hur t a full hur. The statin added eight peple t the staff, including phtgraphers, reprters and assciate prducers. A studi hst set was added t the existing field anchr and news anchr. Anther change fr the statin is its partnership with a lcal radi utlet. WPLW(AM) simulcasts wrvr -rv's 6 p.m. newscast. Since many peple are still cmmuting when the prgram airs, the statin feels that the simulcast will attract new viewers frm the cmmuting listeners. The statin has added a tll -free WATS line that viewers can use as a tip line. they have als established a "Neighbrhd Netwrk" vide stringer system. If a viewer gets exclusive vide f a newswrthy event, the statin airs it with full credit. The statin has switched t Beta recrders, is currently switching t CCD cameras and has added micrwave capabilities t its SNV truck. Frmer pitching great Denny McClain was released frm prisn when his cnvictin fr mail fraud was called int questin fllwing a Supreme Curt ruling. The nly way t guarantee same -day bradcast f the stry was t fly a crew t Alabama. The SNV had a prir cmmitment. S a crew was sent t the Alabama prisn. There, they picked up McClain and flew him t Tampa fr an exclusive interview. There were n direct flights, s a plane was chartered. The few thusand dllars it cst, accrding t the statin, was well wrth the exclusive ftage it yeilded. The SNV truck has paid ff in a number f instances. On electin night, the statin hked up with a number f ther Flrida statins fr an ad hc satellite netwrk, and thereby carried the acceptance speeches f the gvernr and a new senatr. When Hurricane Flyd threatened the cast and then crssed the keys heading fr suth Flrida, crews flwed its curse, reprting live n its prgress. Cverage f the Ppe's visit t Miami required mnths f planning. Mre than a dzen staffers went t Miami, plus three trucks, three edit statins and a rented RV that served as a prtable studi. When Ls Angeles was hit by an earthquake Oct. 1, KCBS -TV there says it respnded with "the lngest same day cverage f any Ls Angeles televisin statin." The quake, 6.1 n the Richter Scale, hit at 7:42 a.m. At 7:48, KCBS - Tv reprter Hsea Sanders was n the air with a live reprt. Between 7:49 and 8:14, the statin cut in twice mre. At 8:14, KCBS -TV decided t g with live cverage, preempting regular prgraming, until 1 p.m. Its cverage included a news cnference held by Cal Tech earthquake center and reprts gathered by 12 reprters frm arund suthern Califrnia. At 3 p.m., tw hurs befre the start f its regular news, it returned t cntinuus cverage. lasting until 6:30. Accrding t KCBs -N between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., it was the nly statin in twn ffering news and it dubled its rating fr that time perid. Sixteen days after the initial earthquake, KCBs -TV preempted a full prime time schedule fr a special reprt n earthquake infrmatin. Because Ls Angeles is the largest archdicese in the U.S., KCBS -ry there felt extensive cverage f the visit f Ppe Jhn Paul II last September was warranted. It aired 18 hurs n the stry, beginning fur mnths befre the Ppe's arrival. The kickff was an 11 -part series fr which reprter Rss Becker and crew travelled t Rme. They decided t avid a "sft feature n the Vatican" and pursued instead hw the church frms its psitin n "cntrversial issues." Back in Ls Angeles, Cathlic pinin makers talked abut the "relevance f Vatican dctrine n L.A. daily life." Befre the Ppe arrived, KCBS -TV aired a six - part series in which it featured the results f a pll the statin cnducted n lcal Cathlic attitudes. When the Ppe arrived, the statin claims it aired "the mst cverage f any netwrk statin in the market," ver 14 hurs fllwing the Ppe's activities, plus three hurlng preview /review prgrams. The day he came int L.A., KCBS -ry went live frm 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and frm 4 p.m. t 8 p.m. At 11 p.m. that day, it aired a special hur -lng bradcast reviewing the day When it cvered the parade (six f the seven VHF statins in Ls Angeles agreed t pl cverage; Kcas -ry was assigned t the parade), 10 cameras and 14 reprters were used.

Because the statin is less than a mile frm the river, it had t be sandbagged t prtect it frm the threat f the rising waters. After the waters subsided (they did nt reach the statin), a dcumentary was prduced examining the rle f the Crps f Engineers and hw the fld management was handled. The entire statin staff was invlved in the effrt, frm live news and weather reprts t manning phnes and even helping viewers vacate their hmes. On Sept 13 -Aug. 8, TV 2 accmpanied the Oklahma cntingent t the Internatina Special Olympics in Suth Bend, Ind. Reprter Linda Gelzer, news prducer Sctt James and phtgrapher Dan Sherpherd jined the athletes at the Ntre Dame campus. Viewers were given live cverage thrughut the games, and a half -hur special highlighted the week's activities. WJSU -TV Annistn, Ala., experimented with SNV t bring its viewers live reprts frm the state capital during last year's gubernatrial electin. The statin jined a grup f five CBS affiliates fr the prject. News Directr Phil Cx and chief phtgrapher Rn Simmns riginated reprts via satellite fr the early and late lcal news. It was the statin's first live news bradcast utside its studi. Reprter Greg Strud spent tw weeks in Prvidence, R.I., where an Alabama judge was tried and acquitted f charges that he had raped a 13- year -ld by while attending a family curt judge's cnference in Prvidence. Strud's reprts were fed daily by satellite via the affiliate cperative system. The statin currently carries an hur and a half f lcal cverage daily, and plans t increase its weekend cverage beginning in early Nvember. After ne f its wrst drughts, Nrth Carlina was hit n Aug. 20 by a series f slw mving strms that dumped heavy rains. The strms prduced flding and trnades that tre thrugh several cunties suth f Raleigh, N.C. The flding frced evacuatins, kncked ut phnes, blcked streets and delayed flights at Raleigh- Durham airprt. WRAL- Tv had reprters statined in varius areas, reprting n the flding and trnades, the prblems they caused and their impact n the cmmunity Charlie Gaddy, the statin's 6 p.m. anchr, did the afternn cut -ins knee deep in fld water. The legal drinking age was abut t be raised and thusand f cllege students in Chapel Hill, N.C., were ut fr a "last fling." What began as a party became a "rit," with sme students thrwing bttles and thers picking fights n the twn's histric Franklin street. A hundred plice fficers were called in t quell the disturbance. Reprter Tim Kent and phtgraphers Jay Jennings and Steve Eliznd cvered the rit, arrests and the mrning atter. WRAL -TV phtgrapher Janet Hundley captured the crash f a C -130 at Frt Bragg, N.C., during a public demnstratin. Three crewmen and ne persn n the grund died when the plane crashed during an exercise. The statin had live reprts at nn, 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. that day, using its satellite truck and micrwave capabilities. Cverage f the crash f Nrthwest Flight 255 in Detrit tk n great significance fr ursv -Tv Phenix when it became apparent the accident wuld have tragic repercussins in that Arizna city, the first stp n the plane's flight plan. Althugh the accident ccurred at a time when the newsrm was lightly staffed, the Cvering the news in The Dead Zne' By Dug Fx, news manager, WFAA -TV Dallas "The majr cities f Texas -Dallas, Frt Wrth, Austin, San Antni, Hustn, Crpus Christi, all the way dwn t the suthern tip f the state at Brwnsville, and pints in- between -are all cnnected by a Western Unin micrwave system. It's easily accessible, cst efficient and used n a daily basis by the majr city statins and their netwrk reginal feeds t swap stries and share cverage. But anything west f Frt Wrth is a virtual televisin dead zne. There's il, gas cattle, sagebrush, jackrabbits, snakes, but n micrwave systems feeding the eastern third f the state and n satellite uplinks until yu reach New Mexic, a hard day's drive frm Dallas -Frt Wrth. That's where three f the state's tp spt news stries ccurred this year: the dead zne. "When a late evening trnad literally blew away the west Texas twn f Saragsa, WFAA -Tv nly had a stry read by an anchr n its 10 p.m. newscast. The next mrning, it wrked with Cable News Netwrk in arranging t get vide f the devastatin -sht by KMID -TV Midland -t be transprted t a statin in Las Cruces, N.M., where it was relayed by satellite simultaneusly t CNN and wfaa -TV which put the unedited vide n the air live as it was fed in. By nn, wfaa -w had its satellite truck n the scene in Saragsa with tw reprters, tw phtgraphers, a field prducer, an editr and an engineer, and interrupted Saturday cartns t bradcast an 'instant' 15- minute special reprt. WFAA -TV beat the cmpeitin and the majr netwrks by hurs. "When the bdies f 18 illegal aliens were fund inside a sweltering railrad bxcar at Sierra Blanca, Tex., the same New Mexic uplink invlving fur lcal TV statins was used fr the initial ftage t be sent back t Dallas fr bradcast. The satellite truck was sent in fr the secnd wave f cverage and fllwups n the tragedy. Again, satellite newsgathering prved t be the vital link fr getting the stry ut. "By mid -summer, WFAA -TV assistant news directr, Jhn Miller, had established a 'g team' f reprters, phtgraphers, editrs, prducers and engineers t be n call n a rtating basis t respnd in the event f a majr spt news develpment. The rescue f 18- mnth -ld Jessica McClure frm an abandned water well in Midland was the first test f the g team. "Althugh Jessica slipped int the well at 10 a.m. and was making big news n the televisin statins in Midland, the stry never hit the wires until late that afternn. WFAA -Tv reprter Matt Quinn called Midland authrities wh tld him they expected t have the girl ut by 8 p.m. Unable t get t Midland n a cmmercial flight in time fr the anticipated rescue, the statin chartered a plane and flew Quinn and a phtgrapher t the scene. "Eight 'clck came and went. Jessica was still trapped. Rescue wrkers digging an escape tunnel alngside the abandned well had hit bedrck. The ging was slw 'Maybe mid - night,' they said when asked when Jessica might be cming ut. "Midway thrugh the 10 p.m. news, executive news directr Marty Haag rlled the dice and gambled. He gambled n sending the SNV truck and the g team t a stry seven hurs away that might be ver in less than tw hurs. The early dispatch f equipment and manpwer wuld be either a strke f gd intuitin r a big waste f time, effrt and mney. It prved t be the mst pivtal decisin in cvering what became a stry f internatinal prprtins. "When dawn brke acrss the west Texas plains, rescue wrkers were still digging their escape tunnel, Jessica was crying, then singing and still stuck, and wfaa -TV was telling its viewers the stry-live -frm the scene 300 -miles and n uplinks away. Matt Quinn and phtgrapher Paul Parist als prvided ABC News, Gd Mrning America and CNN with the initial live cverage f the unflding drama. WF-AA -Tv had the nly uplink ut f Midland fr the first 24 hurs. The statin's Starcam 8 truck became Jessica's vide link t the rest f the wrld.

The $100,000 cst fr a year f captining was underwritten by Peple's Drug Stres, JKJ Chevrlet, Martin - Marietta and Riggs Natinal Bank. The statin fcused n team cverage f spt news ver the past year. A gd example was cverage f the Iran -cntra hearings. Thrughut the hearings, the statin had a reprter live at the Capitl, anther cvering behind- the -scenes events, and each evening presented a live talk -back segment with a principal cmmittee member abut the day's events. When an Amtrak train derailed dear Baltimre in January, wjla -Tv had a reprter live n the scene: anther wh cnducted interviews with Amtrak fficials, witnesses and victims, and a third wh reprted n the factrs that might have caused the accident. Minutes atter learning f the Califrnia earthquake, KIRO-TV Seattle was n the air with the latest infrmatin. The statin gt infrmatin ahead f the wire services by calling peple in the Ls Angeles area.

Chapman faced a city editr, the VDT, the rewrite peple and strange deadlines. Mntgmery faced the assignment editrs, the prducers, the camera, and strange deadlines. Afterward, they bth reprted n their experiences, and while each had gd things t say abut their temprary assignments, bth 'cncluded there was n place like their respective jurnalistic hmes. At sme pint, every prducer faces the dilemma f sparking interest in key state events that largely feature pmp, circumstnce and "husekeeping." Histrically, New Hampshire Public Televisin has bradcast the gvernr's inauguratin and /r the pening day f the legislature live frm the state capital. This past year, instead f cvering the remte purely as a multi- camera, gavel -t-gavel sht, NHPTV interspersed videtaped prfiles f key peple and behind -the-scenes infrmatin such as hw a bill becmes law. The talent als prvided histrical and plitical trivia when what was happening n the flr was mre imprtant t thse in the rm than t viewers. The end prduct prvided viewers with the frmality f the day's key events, yet allwed them infrmal relief frm the "husekeeping" aspects. NHPTV estimated the prductin cst at abut $1,000. When an Amtrak passenger train cllided with a Cnrail freight train utside Baltimre last January, wmar -TV brke int its Sunday netwrk ftball bradcast with its first f many reprts n the accident, which killed 16 peple. A WMAR -TV news crew was sent t the crash site and prvided live cverage f the rescue peratin n an expanded 11 p.m. newscast. Virtually the entire news staff was assigned t the stry, with the statin adding a 30- minute mrning newscast t keep abreast f develpments.

The statin fllwed up n the stry a mnth later with a special three -part series, "Wh's Running the Railrad," featuring exclusive interviews with engineers and cnductrs wh discussed safety prblems. When the Baltimre Symphny Orchestra visited Eurpe and the Sviet Unin, WMAR -TV prvided the first live satellite cverage f the histric tur, including the jyful reunin in Russia f a musician and his mther.

74 Netwrk news, lcal style Its hard t imagine that five uplinks wuld prve insufficient t cver a state primary electin. But that was the case in Octber when the Flrida News Netwrk had t cver six gubernatrial candidates, each in a different city, each with a gd chance f making it int a runff. With a rented Ku truck, the netwrk had live remtes that night frm all six f the candidates' parties. Each lcatin had ne reprter wh wrked fr the entire seven- statin netwrk (the netwrk nw has nine affiliates). That reprter fed live shts fr electin cut -ins, as well as taped packages and interviews. Statins were able t take victry and cncessin speeches live. The six lcatins prvided mre than 50 live shts during the evening. The big effrt came at 11 p.m. FNN statins led their shws with back -t -back live shts with interviews f the tw Demcratic candidates wh made it int a runff electin. They then went t back -t -back live shts frm reprters with the tw Republican candidates wh were in a runff. All fur shts were taken at the same time by all the FNN statins. That meant every statin culd lead with the fur httest races, ne right after anther, rather than having t wait their turn and end up with the mst imprtant live sht in the middle f their sprts r weather segment. It als meant each f the statins had nly the expense f staffing ne lcatin, while receiving live cverage frm six. When the field f candidates was narrwed, FNN c- spnsred debates between the final senatrial and gubernatrial candidates with the Flrida League f Wmen Vters. All member statins carried the debates live in prime time. Mre than 40 radi statins acrss the state als carried the debates live and scres f lcal, natinal and freign reprters were n hand. The debate between incumbent Senatr Paula Hawkins and her challenger, frmer gvernr Bb Graham, turned ut t be the nly face -t -face meeting between the tw candidates in the campaign. All thrugh the plitical seasn the Flrida News Netwrk statins used their regular daily cnference calls and daily half -hur satellite feed t crdinate their effrts t make sure they had access t any significant plitical stries. On electin night the member statins again pled their resurces, sending nly ne crew fr the netwrk t each f the fur candidates' parties as well as t the headquarters f a pr- casin grup that was trying t legalize gambling in Flrida. During the evening, the netwrk supplied mre than 60 live shts. Every victry r cncessin speech was carried live. Eleven 'clck had all seven statins hitting live shts frm each f the fur candidates all at the same time. Other spt stries cvered by FNN included a Palm Bay gunman's shting spree that killed three and injured a dzen; reactin t the Iraqi attack n the USS Starke frm the Mayprt Naval Statin and the subsequent memrial service at the ship's base; the killing f a judge and prsecutr in Prt St. Je by a man upset ver his divrce prceeding, and hurricane Flyd. n the island. The statin arranged fr its cwned statin in Miami, WPLG, t edit and transmit the reprts back via satellite. Frm Wednesday (New Year's Eve) t the fllwing Saturday, Cle and Huntingtn tk cmmercial flights between San Juan and Miami. They came hme n Saturday, but returned the same day when it was learned that the dead wuld be flwn hme. During their next six days n the island they were able t use the Puert Rican uplink. The news staff back in Hartfrd was busy als, airing live updates thrughut New Year's Day, interviewing victims' relatives in Cnnecticut, gathering infrmatin frm CBS feeds in Puert Ric and cnducting phne interviews with Puert Rican fficials and Cnnecticut residents in San Juan hspitals. Phne lines t Puert Ric were jammed and it ften tk hurs fr calls t g thrugh. The statin did manage t cnduct live phne interviews with the gvernr f Puert Ric and eyewitnesses t the disaster. When a husing cmplex under cnstructin in Bridgeprt, Cnn., cllapsed killing 28 wrkers and injuring at least nine thers, WFSB was prepared. It had bught a satellite van just a few weeks befre and, accrding t the statin, the vehicle made all the difference in cvering the stry. Bridgeprt is t far frm Hartfrd t transmit live reprts via micrwave and cludy skies made it impsible fr the statin's helicpter t relay a live feed back. Fr the 10 days it tk t find the 28 men wh died, the statin kept a 24 -hur watch at the scene. In additin t the SNV, the statin sent all three f its ENG trucks t use as editing statins. At least ne field prducer and ne r tw phtgraphers were n hand arund the clck, as well as reprters. Frequently there were mre persns ivlved, including additinal reprters and editrs when needed, and security guards hired t prtect the news vehicles. In all, the statin reprted spending $10,000 n satellite time and thusands f dllars n phne cmmunicatins and vertime. WFSB prvided live feeds t the New England News Exchange, CBS affiliates and abut a dzen ther TV statins. The visit f Ppe Jhn Paul II t Miami n Sept. 10 and 11 prved a challenging news event fr WPLG(Tv). Planning began almst a year befre the visit. Anchr Ann Bishp and a news crew traveled t Rme, prducing a ne - hur dcumentary n the Ppe and the Vatican. The statin bradcast 151/2 hurs f live cverage, with reprters live frm every stp n the itinerary, and cverage anchred frm a live remte every day. Mre than 40 packages were prduced n the church in Suth Flrida. WAU -Tv Mbile, Ala., has managed t duble its weekday n -air news time withut increasing its staff. In the prcess it wn the mst news awards in its histry. In January 1986, a fire killed fur sibling children. The statin arrived n the scene befre the firefighters and befre the father f the children.

Authrities treated it as an islated case. WCr- Tv anchr Pat Minarcin, hwever, received a phne call frm a hspital staffer wh indicated it was much mre than that. The caller said there had been many suspicius deaths in the ward where Harvey wrked. Minarcin and executive prducer Ed Wilsn spent the next 21/2 mnths talking with hspital emplyes, pring ver hundreds f pages f dcuments and talking with hspital fficials. A frensics expert was flwn in frm New Yrk t check medical infrmatin. Medical authrities acrss the cuntry were interviewed via satellite.

The investigatin spread t the lcal veteran's administratin hspital, where Harvey claimed t have killed 17 patients, and t a hspital in Suthern Kentucky where he claimed t have killed 13. When Harvey cnfessed t the additinal murders, reprter Cyndee Bensn brke the stry. A grand jury interviewed hspital staff, exhumed bdies and indicted Harvey fr 25 murders in Cincinnati, and mst recently fr nine murders in Kentucky. He is currently serving three cnsecutive life sentences. Shrtly after Harvey was sentenced, Minarcin gt an exclusive interview with him. Executive prducer Ed Wilsn said that thugh the statin has been credited with the stry, "it culdn't have happened withut sme very curageus staffers at Drake hspital" wh came frward with infrmatin. Their faces and vices were camuflaged by digital and audi effects, but, says Wilsn, "They tk the chance. They brught Dnald Harvey t justice." WUSA -TV Washingtn has cnducted a number f investigatins in the past 15 mnths, garnering natinal attentin. One stry in particular was "D.C.

128 1 aw & Requ1ati- ra NAB suggests tax n sale f TV's, radis, VCR's Plan is presented in effrt t prevent Cngress frm taxing sale f bradcast statins The Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters, in a 14 -page "white paper" sent t members f Cngress last week, laid ut its arguments fr why Cngress shuld cnsider taxing the sale f televisins, radis and VCR's rather than bradcast statins t raise mney fr public bradcasting. In a cver letter, NAB President Eddie Fritts als suggested sme ways the Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee culd raise additinal revenues fr the general treasury t help bring dwn the federal budget deficit: auctin ff certain nnbradcast frequencies and impse a celluar radi applicatin fee. T the dismay f NAB and mst cmmercial bradcasters, the Cmmerce Cmmittee prpsed last mnth a 2 % -t -5% fee n the sale f bradcast statins t help reduce the federal budget deficit in the first tw years f its existence and t fund public bradcasting thereafter (BROADCASTING, Oct. 26). The cmmittee estimated that the fee wuld generate abut $340 millin per year. As part f its effrt t derail the transfer fee, the NAB prpsed tw weeks ag a "mdest" excise tax n televisins, radis and VCR's, the auctin f nnbradcast spectrum and the cellular applicatin fees as alternatives. Only the excise tax wuld be used t fund public bradcasting; the thers wuld be used nly fr deficit reductin. Accrding t NAB's calculatins, a 11/2% tax f the sale f televisins, radis and VCR's wuld generate $264 millin in 1988, while a 2% tax wuld yield $351 millin. Over the next tw years, it said, the spectrum auctins culd raise $800 millin and the cellular applicatin fees culd generate $88 millin. Accrding t cngressinal aides, Fritts has already met with key supprters f the transfer fee in Cngress -Senate Cmmerce Cmmittee Chairman Ernest Hllings (D- S.C.), Huse Energy and Cmmerce Cmmittee Chairman Jhn Dingell (D- Mich.) and Huse Telecmmunicatins Subcmmittee Chairman Edward Markey (D- Mass.) -but failed t persuade them t substitute the excise tax n cnsumer electrnics fr the fee. Accrding t ne aide, Fritts's initiative did yield a prmise frm Hllings nt t ppse NAB 's effrts t find cngressinal supprt fr the excise tax. The transfer fee "is a radical and ttally unprecedented departure frm lng- established cmmunicatins plicies," the NAB said in the white paper. Funding public bradcasting thrugh the tax wuld jepardize "the essential freedm" f public bradcasters, it said. "The impsitin f... [the tax] als has the danger f leading t a sig- nificant alteratin f cmmercial bradcasters public interest respnsibility," it said. "Such majr public plicy changes deserve mre than cavalier and cursry attentin." Cngress and thers wh "have given thrugh and serius cnsideratin f apprpriate methds t supprt public bradcasting have rejected any type f special r narrw tax," the white paper said. "The chief cncern has cnsistently been that public bradcasting nt draw n s few surces f suprt that its freedm frm utside influence wuld be placed in jepardy...the cnsistent cnclusin has been that revenues raised thrugh general taxes, as ppsed t special taxes n a small ppulatin r industry sectr, must be the principal surce f federal supprt." The tranfer fee cnstitutes a "significant change" in the traditinal view that bradcasters "pay" fr their licenses thrugh their public service bligatins, the NAB said. If Cngress impses the fee, "the licenses becme mre like private prperty withut any f the attendant public interest duties, it said. "N ne has cnsidered this price -the eliminatin f the public interest standard which culd ultimately accmpany cmmercial bradcast financing f its nncmmercial cunterparts. Cngress much give these issues serius cnsideratin. It has given nne." In a prepared statement issued last week, Fritts suggested that bradcasters "pay" fr their spectrum in anther way -"by prviding their prduct free t the public." The transfer fee may strain the relatin- ship between public bradcasters and their cmmercial "brethren," the NAB said. Cmmercial bradcasters have supprted the fund -raising effrts f public bradcasters and prvided them with free technical advice and twer facilities, it said. They have even "cme t accept, even supprt, the cncept f a federal subsidy fr public bradcasters," it said. "The ultimate unfairness f the transfer tax is that it actually frces the cmmercial bradcasters t subsi- dize their cmpetitin, a nvel apprach t public plicymaking...clearly, the Cmmerce Cmmittee has nt cnsidered the effect such a prpsal will have n the cntinued spirit f cperatin between these tw vitally related frms f bradcasting." Given the NAB's argument against using "special taxes" t supprt public bradcasting, the NAB apparently des nt see its prpsed tax n cnsumer electrnics as a "special tax." In the white paper, the NAB asked Cngress t cnsider the tax, nting that it is nthing new. Between 1950 and 1965, televisin sets were subject t a 10% excise tax, it said. And, it said, the Carnegie Cmmissin n Educatinal Televisin, which set the grund wrk fr public bradcasting in the late 1960's, recmmended a manufacturer's 2% t 5% excise tax n televisins t supprt public bradcasting. "The appeal f this prpsal is that... the supprt wuld cme frm the intended beneficiaries f the system -the American viewing and listening public," the NAB said. In the letter t Cngress, NAB said applicatin fees fr the ltteries that will be used t grant cellular radi licenses in 438 markets ver the next tw years "wuld discurage the current abuses f...the lttery... by speculatrs, many f whm enter these ltteries with n intentin f serving that market themselves." If the ltteries fr each market attract just 20 applicatins, the NAB said, a $5,000 per - applicatin fee culd generate $43.8 millin. A $10,000 fee culd raise $87.6 millin, it said. The NAB 's prpsal t auctin spectrum wuld be similar t that prpsed earlier by the FCC, but exempt mre types f spectrum users. The NAB prpsed exempting spectrum used fr bradcasting, public safety, amatuer radi and cellular radi. If the 6 mhz f unassigned spectrum currently available were put n the auctin blck, the NAB said, the FCC culd raise $800 millin ver tw years. Mre n fairness. In separate filings at the FCC, the Natinal Assciatin f Bradcasters and Radi- Televisin News Directrs Assciatin registered disagreement with the FCC's plicy f cntinuing t investigate fairness dctrine cmplaints stemming frm ballt issues. In a Sept. 22 letter t the Huse Energy and Cmmerce Cmmittee, FCC Chairman Dennis Patrick reiterated FCC's narrw view f its Aug. 4 actin eliminating the general fairness dctrine and Cullman dctrine in a case invlving Meredith Crp.'s wrvhtrvl Syracuse. The Cullman dctrine, at issue in Meredith, bliged bradcasters t prvide air time t ppsing grups wh want t respnd t cntrversial advertising, but cannt affrd it. Patrick tld Cngress the FCC intends t act n cmplaints "that d nt clearly fall within the scpe f the Meredith decisin, including persnal attack, plitical editrializing, Zapple and ballt issue cases." In an earlier jint filing, the NAB and RINDA said the FCC's eliminatin f the general dctrine shuld encmpass plitical editrializing and persnal attack crllaries. In the last filings, they said it shuld als encmpass ballt issues. Bradcasting Nv

129 Dispute ver legislatin that wuld change the way fees are cllected is nt likely t be reslved sn Music licensing revisited by Senate The nging feud between televisin bradcasters and music licensing scieties resumed n Capitl Hill last week at a Senate subcmmittee hearing. At the heart f their dispute is legislatin (S. 698) that wuld substitute the current blanket license fr the music rights t syndicated televisin pr- grams with a surce licensing scheme, smething bradcasters favr. But judging frm the testimny presented and the strng negative reactin the bill drew frm sme senatrs, any immediate reslutin is nt in the ffing. This is the first time Cngress has revisited the issue since negtiatins between the All- Industry TV Music License Cmmittee and the American Sciety f Cmpsers, Authrs and Publishers cllapsed (BROAD- CASTING, Oct. 5). Bradcasters have t btain a blanket license fr the music rights t a particular prgram regardless f whether they use all the sngs r nt. They pay a percentage f their grss revenues fr the license. Under a surce licensing scheme, they wuld pay ne fee fr bth music rights and syndicatin rights. The U.S. Register f Cpyrights, Ralph Oman, came ut against surce licensing. The current system, "n balance seems t be the best," he tld the subcmmittee. "I am nt saying it is a perfect system," said Oman, "it is just better than all the ther alternatives." Accrding t statistics prvided by the licensing scieties, Oman said, bradcasters spent apprximately $95 millin in 1986 n music rights fr syndicated prgrams. The senatrs als heard an impassined plea t disregard the legislatin frm crn - pser Mike Pst, whse wrk includes the theme sngs frm L.A.Law, Magnum, P.I. and Hunter. He predicted cmpsers wuld lse ut under surce licensing. "When we lse, the public will als lse, because the real questin raised by S. 698 is whether peple can make a living cmpsing music," Pst said. The music licensing scieties' lbbying initiative against the bill included a meeting between cuntry rck musician Charlie Daniels and the Cpyright Subcmmittee's chairman, Dennis DeCncini (D- Ariz.), in Phenix n Nv. 8. Despite weighty ppsitin t the legislatin, bradcasters were heartened by De- Cncini's remarks. DeCncini, while nt predispsed t the legislatin, appeared sympathetic t the claim f bradcasters that the blanket license is unfair. "I understand yu are paying a lt fr what yu dn't get," said DeCncini, adding that he is trying t "find sme way t mve t a mre equitable" apprach withut destrying the cmpser's rle in the prcess. He suggested an alternative prcedure t the blanket license, pssibly smething that wuld enable bradcasters t deduct frm the blanket license a "credit" if they have Arries David negtiated separately fr a per -prgram license with a cmpser. The Arizna senatr, nevertheless, was nt advcating any quick actin n the matter and said he wuld canvass subcmmittee members as t what curse t pursue next. His idea fr a credit seemed t intrigue thers like Senatr Patrick Leahy (D -Vt.), wh is undecided n the issue. Still, Leahy tk the bradcasters t task fr a videtape presentatin aired during their testimny. "I came here t hear peple testify live, nt [see] smething aimed at 10- year- lds," said Leahy. The tape was prepared by the All- Industry TV Music License Cmmittee and featured the grup's chief arguments fr the legislative refrm. Cmmittee Chairman Leslie Arries f WIVB-TV Buffal, N.Y., narrated the piece and then fllwed with further remarks. Leahy was unimpressed and he cmpared the tape t smething designed fr Sesame Street. Later, he asked the bradcasters if they viewed the tape as an pprtunity t air the TV statin lgs frm all the subcmmittee members' hmetwns. After the hearing, Arries defended the tape. He said bradcasters had a "great deal f infrmatin" t present and that "trying t d it rally wuld have taken 15 minutes." As fr DeCncini's suggestin fr a credit, bth sides appeared at a standff ver the prpsal. Arries indicated bradcasters were pen t any "rewrking f the legislatin." But he said they had explred the idea f a per- prgram license with ASCAP but t n avail. "ASCAP insisted that each statin guarantee them 75% f what ASCAP nw receives under the blanket license if as little as ne nte f ASCAP music was used in ne mnth under a per -prgram license," Arries said. ASCAP's Hal David tld DeCncini he thught the per- prgram ffer was the same as a credit r s- called carve ut, and was a Bradcasting Nv "pretty terrific" ffer. Bradcast Music Inc.'s Ed Cramer said he has indicated a willingness t negtiate a carve ut as far back as 1981 but that bradcasters had nt asked fr ne. The bill's mst vehement critics were subcmmittee members Ted Kennedy (D- Mass.) and Orrin Hatch (R- Utah), wh see n need fr revising the current system. "Cngress shuld nt inject itself int the prcess," Kennedy said, nting that the matter is under curt review and that the legislatin's prpnents have "failed t demnstrate the need fr legislatin." A further castigatin came frm Senatr Pete Wilsn (R- Calif.), wh testified befre the subcmmittee: "We in the Cngress shuld n mre be dictating the way that music rights are licensed than shuld we be telling Dmin's hw much t charge fr delivering pizza." The legislatin's chief Senate prpnent and its authr, Suth Carlina Republican Strm Thurmnd, said the bill prtects cmpsers and sngwriters and enables them t cllect payments fr the residual use f their music. "I believe this change [it was nt included in the previus versin f the bill] will insure that the cmpser receives payment fr his wrk," Thurmnd said. The senatr als underscred the inequity f the present system. He said Hllywd studis nt nly "receive payments frm the bradcasters fr the prgraming, they als receive a prtin f the ryalties cllected by AS- CAP and BMI," because f their wnership f music publishing cmpanies. The parties attempted t reach a cmprmise, but the TV cmmittee discussins brke ff because ASCAP was unwilling t meet bradcasters "even part way" n the matter. During the negtiatins, Arries said the cmmittee suggested a new frmula "which wuld guarantee enugh mney t pay cmpsers at current rates under a blanket license. Bradcasters insisted, hwever, that studi 'publishing' fees [currently 40 %] and ASCAP administrative charges [currently almst 20 %] be reduced. ASCAP balked and prpsed an increase in all fees charged t bradcasters." At the hearing Phenix bradcasters Richard DeAngelis f KPHO -TV and C.E. (Pep) Cney f KPNX-TV Phenix urged a legislative slutin. "What we are really asking fr is structural refrm," said Cney. "The scalled rate curt-which is suppsed t rein in ASCAP's mnply pwer -has never decided a case in 37 years f existence. The current prceeding, invlving all lcal televisin statins, is already nearing the end f its third year and the 'trial' has nt even begun," DeAngelis said. Philip Lmbard, chairman f Citadel Cmmunicatins, a bradcast -statin grup that includes WVNY -TV Burlingtn, Vt., als appeared befre the senatrs. All bradcasters want, he emphasized, is the right t bargain and pay fr the music rights. He said bradcasters need greater cntrl ver "where we put ur ttal prgraming dllars t be better able t carry ut ur wn creative

130 functin." SESAC Chairman Alice Prager stated her rganizatin's ppsitin t the bill. She called it "special interest" legislatin benefiting nly the bradcasters. The advertising industry als testified against the bill. William Cttn f the American Assciatin f Advertising Agencies defended the current blanket licensing system and said the measure, if adpted, culd cst advertisers wh use music in many cmmercials, as much as $150 millin each year. The Assciatin f Natinal Advertisers' Rbert Wehling said S. 698 wuld create an "administrative nightmare." Cable rights debated Three Califrnia curt cases serve as nexus f panel discussin f First Amendment and cable, spnsred by ABA Cable televisin systems have an inherent "right t be," said Harld Farrw, cunsel fr cable televisin systems fighting t establish that right in a number f curt cases arund the cuntry. But cmmunities that franchise cable systems have rights, t, said Larrine S. Hlbrke, cunsel fr cities that have tangled with cable systems in curt. Fr his part, Steve Effrs, president f the Cmmunity Antenna Televisin Assciatin, was less categrical in his assessment f the rights invlved; he said cable systems shuld be allwed t cmpete with ther systems in a cmmunity -but, he wndered abut the disadvantage he said an perating system wuld be under in cmpeting with a newcmer whse way was paved by curt decisins and wh, therefre, did nt carry the same regulatry baggage. That, he said, is "a legitimate public plicy questin." The three appeared n a panel spnsred last week by the American Bar Assciatin's Cable Televisin Cmmittee n curt cases invlving three Califrnia cmmunities - Sacrament, Pal Alt and Santa Cruz -that raised questins cncerning the First Amendment rights f cable televisin systems. Farrw, wh represents the cable systems invlved, said the cases grew ut f the determinatin f cable televisin systems t increase rates in the face f ppsitin frm the cmmunities that franchised them. T Farrw, f Farrw, Schildhause & Wilsn, cable is "a member f the press" whse rates a city was barred by the First Amendment frm cntrlling. Farrw, wh has been winning in early runds f the Califrnia litigatin, cntends that while cable systems -like utilities that use a city's streets -are subject t the city's plice pwers, they enjy the same First Amendment rights as the printed press. "They have a right t be." And he predicted that mst f the prvisins f the Cable Cmmunicatins Plicy Act f 1984, which authrizes cities t impse varius bligatins n the cable systems it franchises -and t limit the number f franchises it issues - wuld, "sner r later" be "ruled bad." The act, he said, "was brn sick." Hlbrke, a partner in Miller, Yung & Hlbrke, said Farrw had made "an ar- ticulate presentatin f a radical pint f view." She said that in arguing fr cable systems' "right t be," Farrw had ignred the rights f speakers ther than the cable system. In almst all cases, she said, franchising authrities prvide fr public, gvernmental and educatinal access channels. And cable regulatin, she said, "is nt a nvel idea " -it has evlved ver a perid f years, beginning with the FCC and cntinuing thrugh the Cable Act f She expressed cnfidence that, "ultimately," the Supreme Curt "will understand there are gd reasns" that cable franchising has develped as it has -that city cuncils "have nt gne ff n a frlic." As fr the Cable Act, she described it "as the best accmmdatin" f all cncerned, including the cable industry. Effrs, appeared t side with Farrw in the debate with Hlbrke. He said, fr instance, the federal and state gvernments had been "arrgant" in fashining regulatins fr cable in its early days, at a time when they culd nt fresee hw it wuld develp ver the next 15 years. But Effrs was nt prepared t supprt Farrw's psitin withut reservatin. Fr the regulatins that have lng been in place have created a fact Effrs said shuld nt be ignred in discussins f First Amendment rights. The fact, he said, is that systems that "agreed t play by the rules" and that paid substantial sums f mney t build culd be cnfrnted with cmpetitin frm systems that might nt be bligated t play by the same rules and that culd build systems fr much less mney. Fr instance, if the curts were t accept Farrw's arguments, "verbuilding" systems wuld nt be required t prvide universal service; they might be free t serve nly specific "pckets" f a cmmunity. (He said thse wh think f verbuilding in terms f plitical subdivisins are mistaken.) "Hw d yu deal with that prblem?" he asked. Effrs, incidentally, was less idelgical than Farrw in his discussin f the First Amendment. "The First Amendment argument," he said, "is a mechanism t get cable recgnized as a medium, nt just a technlgy." Farrw did nt try t paper ver the prblems the apprach he is champining wuld create fr the cable industry. "If yu want t unlad regulatins, yu have t accept the cncept f cmpetitin, nt just frm ff -air televisin and SMATV's, but ther cable systems," he said. "Smetimes that's scary. It's mre scary when yu bught a system fr $2,500 per subscriber and smene cmes in t build a system fr $600 per subscriber. But that's a business risk " -ne wrth taking, Farrw said. He said the ecnmic mdel that will emerge fr cable is that f the print press. And "the electrnic press," he added, "will be the better fr it." Hlbrke saw things differently. She agreed that cable has First Amendment rights. But where amng the varius media, print and electrnic, des cable fit in? she asked. "Cable," she said, "is a technlgy in search f its First Amendment jurisprudence." FCC's Dennis favrs structural regulatin FCC Cmmissiner Patricia Dennis, in a speech t a grup f New Yrk lawyers, said structural regulatins, rather than cntent regulatins, were the apprpriate way t "diffuse" the pwer f bradcasters. "Structural regulatin f bradcasting's pwer is mst evident in the wnership rules- attributin, ne -t -a- market, duply, crsswnership and natinal multiple wnership," Dennis said in a speech t the New Yrk chapter f the Federal Cmmunicatins Bar Assciatin. "These rules prvide the mechanism fr the cmmissin t diffuse [bradcasting's] pwer, yet they are a mechanism that is cnsistent with the print mdel f the First Amendment... The inherent pwer f bradcasting... des nt give the gvernment the right t regulate cntent." Since 1963, a majrity f Americans have reprted that televisin is their main surce f news and infrmatin, she said. "We are, unfrtunately, nt a natin f readers," she said. "It is much easier t listen and watch... This makes it all the mre imprtant fr the cmmissin t diffuse the pwer f bradcasters by restricting cncentrated wnership, particularly at the lcal level," she said. Dennis said she des nt advcate abslute adherence t the wnership restrictins, hwever. "I recgnize that there are ecnmies f scale that favr multiple wnership in televisin," she said. "I als recgnize that there are certain markets in which it is ecnmically infeasible t require separate wnership f all utlets." Structural regulatins prmte prgraming diversity, Dennis said. "I will be interested... in ur rulemaking n syndicated ex- clusivity t see if its reimpsitin culd prmte diversity." Wuld reimpsitin "tend t make the cable peratr diversify his prgraming?" she asked. Revising FCC's crss -wnership rule. The Freedm f Expressin Fundatin, a grup backed by majr bradcasters and newspaper publishers and dedicated t advancing the First Amendment rights f mass media, has asked the FCC t repeal r "substantially revise" its rule barring wnership f a newspaper and a bradcast statin in the same market. FEF said the riginal justificatin fr the crsswnership rule -the lack f diversity in mass media and imprbability f further prliferatin f new statins -n lnger hlds true. "Since the rules necessarily impinge n bth the bradcaster's and newspaper wner's freedm f expressin, the absence tday f any substantial gvernmental interest makes the rules cnstitutinally suspect." The rule is nw ding mre harm than gd t public interest, the FEF said. The rule has als cntributed t a steady decline in a number f daily newspapers, it said, adding that repeal f the rule wuld result in mre bradcast statins with imprved prgraming. Bradcasting Nv

Apprval seen fr Cablevisin deal Adams -Russell cable systems t be acquired fr $475 millin The $475 millin acquisitin f cable peratr Adams -Russell C. by Cablevisin Systems is expected t clear its last majr hurdle at a special Adams- Russell sharehlder meeting in Bstn this Friday, Nv 20. Stckhlders at the meeting are expected t cast the necessary tw -thirds vte t apprve Cablevisin's cash bid f $ per share.

133 Arlingtn, TCI adds Temp Giant MSO buys small cable prgramer peratr; deal cmbines tw TVRO package peratrs The bard f Temp Enterprises last week apprved an $8 -per -share, $46- millin buyut ffer f the cmpany by Tele -Cmmunicatins Inc. Amng ther prperties, it gives the largest cable multiple system peratr a cable prgraming service, Temp Televisin, and a TVRO packager, Temp Develpment Crp., which had been a cmpetitr t TCI's Netlink TVRO peratin. The purchase is expected t clse next year. The deal invlves an exchange f stck - TCl's Class A cmmn valued at $21 per share with Temp's stck, valued at $8 per share. Temp sharehlders have the ptins f taking the cash price r cnverting their shares t TCI stck at a rati f t 1. There are 5,700,000 Temp shares utstanding, 2,937,097 f them wned by Ed Taylr and his family. Taylr is funder and chairman f Temp Enterprises. A TCI spkesman said the purchase was driven primarily by the cable entities Temp wns and als that the cmpany fits well with TCI. Details n what TCI may d with the prgraming service, r the tw TVRO services, have nt been decided. Temp is in the prcess f altering the thrust f its cable prgraming service, targeting t an audience that is ver 45. The service had been talking t cable peratrs abut taking an equity interest in the service befre the TCI deal materialized. The service reaches sme 12.5 millin hmes and its principal prgraming is supplied by advertisers that buy blcks f time n the service. Temp is turning the service int a mre standard advertising- supprted service akin t ther basic cable netwrks, and hpes t have mst f the shift cmpleted by Jan. 1. Temp is the cmmn carrier fr superstatin WTBS, and it was unclear hw last week's purchase wuld affect that relatinship. The FCC has a prhibitin against superstatins distributing their wn prgraming, which was why Temp came int existence in 1976, t distribute WTBS, under the name Suthern Satellite Systems. TCI wns apprximately 10.1% f TBS. Bth cmpanies have set up peratins t market cable prgraming services t back- I,...-mm =Ilk /Eft ru yard earth statins. Temp Develpment began a market test f its peratin in Atlanta in September, but rlled ut the service natinally after TCI annunced its wn TVRO plans thrugh Netlink. There are tw parts t Temp's TVRO plans. It has a ne -stp prgram rdering service whereby TVRO wners can call a tll -free number and rder services directly. They are billed n a yearly basis, anywhere frm $11 t $49, depending n the number f services rdered. Presently, WTBS, WWOR- TV New Yrk, USA Netwrk and CBN are available. Temp hpes t eventually have 10 services t ffer fr $99 per year. Temp is als ffering thrugh cable peratrs three SatPak packages, which are different cmbinatins f bth pay and basic cable prgraming services. They include the fur services in the ne -stp plan, plus CNN, Headline News, Shwtime, HBO, ESPN, Cinemax and The Mvie Channel. T date, Temp has 40,000 subscribers. "The vast majrity" are frm the ne -stp service, says Temp Develpment President Marty Lafferty, "but the mix is ging t change." He said the figures are three times ahead f the prjected sales pace, with Temp seeing abut 1,000 rders per day. "Our gal is t run the very best telemarketing service in the business," says Lafferty, and it is that expertise that he believes fits well with Netlink's service. There may be a natural divisin f labr, said Lafferty, with Netlink wrking n the frnt end with cable peratrs t sign subscribers, while Temp handles the back -ffice chres. "We've ffered t take the terminals ff their hands," said Lafferty, in referring t the rdering prcess. That wuld wrk, he said, "if they accept the fact that there are tw marketing rles." The tw services culd als remain as is, he said, with reciprcal rights being traded between the tw.

Seminar fcuses n statin sales Stck market crash affects junk bnd market as financing fr transactins The recent apprval f the Strer -Gillett sale, the new tax laws and the stck market crash have fcused new attentin and cncern n statin sales. At a seminar spnsred by the Federal Cmmunicatins Bar Assciatin and the American Bar Assciatin's frum cmmittee n cmmunicatins law, Ry Stewart, chief f the FCC's Mass Media Bureau's vide services divisin, said the cmmissin has develped new pririties in examining transfer applicatins, fcusing mre n wnership structure and less n financial ascertainment. Steve Rattner, managing directr f Mrgan Stanley & C. reflected that view fr statin financing, saying that lending institutins will be mre careful with their lans, after black Mnday. He declared the junk bnd market dead, and equity financing seriusly wunded by the crash. The sessins n "Cmmunicatins Practice: The Transactin Side," were amng the mst well- attended in the series f seminars held at the Washingtn Marritt htel. At the pening sessin, Stewart and Jel Rsenblm f Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering discussed the Cmmunicatins Act and the FCC rules that pertain t statin sales. "Sales used t be cluded with questins abut the buyer's qualificatins, cash flw and the statin's viability," Stewart said. "Nw the certificatin fr financing reduces the amunt f time we spend n sales, and I think that's a gd idea because nw the banks r the seller plices the ability f the buyer t pay ntes." Stewart said that with the eliminatin f prgraming ascertainment requirements, the FCC asks nly fr an acknwledgment that the statin will deal with cmmunity issues. Accrding t Stewart, the time saved n dealing with prgraming ascertainment nw is spent n the mre cmplicated wnership structures in tday's media cmpanies. "We have a new cncept," he said. "It used t be a crpratin, nw it's a limited partnership, with tiers and layers, r it's a crpratin where the cntrlling stckhlder is a limited partnership, which in turn has limited partners and s n. "We have a much mre difficult time fllwing the transactins in terms f the wnership patterns," he said. Rsenblm, wh utlined basic cmmissin rules gverning transactins, asked Stewart whether the cmmissin cmpares buyers' and sellers' merits in apprving a sale, since the law n this matter is uncertain. Stewart said that while the FCC des nt generally cmpare buyers and sellers, it des s in islated cases, when there may be a public interest cnflict. As ne example, he cited a buyer wh recently acquired a small suburban full -service netwrk statin with the intentin f turning it int a satellite f its wn urban statin (the FCC fund n lss f service). In the case f prgraming, hwever, Stewart said "we gt ut f the frmat business. The cmmissin feels that in mst matters the public shuld be left t decide." Clark Wadlw, f Schnader, Harrisn, Segal & Lewis, described FCC plicy regarding wnership principles and tax certificates, and changes being made in thse rules. Wadlw said the FCC is seeking diversity f wnership t prmte ecnmic cmpetitin and stimulate cmpetitin in the "marketplace f ideas." Sme FCC rules are being reexamined, such as the duply rules, which prevent an wner frm hlding tw statins whse service cnturs verlap. The FCC is cnsidering mdifying thse rules t allw statin wnership with greater verlap, permitting c -wned statins t perate clser t ne anther, s lng as they are nt serving the same market. Wadlw als said the FCC is cnsidering changes t the ne -t -a- market rule -that prevents wnership f radi statins and televisin statins in the same market -t allw certain radi -TV crsswnerships. Current FCC rules als permit distress sales t encurage minrity wnership. An wner in truble culd sell his statin t a minrity -cntrlled buyer (50% wnership, r in the case f partnerships, a minrity Wiley (I) and Geller Sitrick (I) and Rattner Bradcasting Nv general partner with vting cntrl and 20% stck wnership) fr 75% f its fair market value. The FCC als ffers a tax certificate t wners selling t minrities. A seller can defer tax liabilities until he repurchases anther statin. "The cmmissin used the tax certificate as a carrt t bring in minrity wnership," Wadlw said. The FCC is reexamining its minrity plicies and has temprarily stayed the distress sale plicy, but the tax certificate plicy remains in effect. The tax certificate rule came under scrutiny recently in Tampa, Fla., when Gaylrd Bradcasting sld its TV statin, w rvt(tv), t a partnership f Clarence McKee and Gillett Bradcasting. McKee hlds an ptin t sell after tw years. The cmmissin recently decided that the sale met the requirements and apprved it. When asked abut the decisin, Wadlw said he felt the sale was "pushing it" a little. "I fully expect the ptin [McKee's] will be exercised and Gillett will wn the statin. I was a little surprised the cmmissin apprved it," he said. Arthur Gdkind f Kteen & Naftalin talked abut the attributin rules and alien wnership. The cmmissin defines attributable interests as thse invlving direct wnership and general partners, and in crpratins, wnership interests f ver 5% (10% in mutual funds). When there is a single wner f mre than 50% f the stck, n minrity interest is cnsidered attributable. Additinally, n nnvting stck is attributable. Nr are warrants r ptins t buy stck attributable until they are exercised. In limited partnerships that meet rigrus standards f nninvlvement, wnership interests are als nt attributable. In the Gillett-Strer decisin, Gdkind said the FCC impsed such stringent cnditins that few ther wners wuld attempt a mve. "Mst statins are basically small businesses that require hands -n management and mst peple cannt accept ttal lack f cntrl f their investments," he said. Gdkind als said that alien wnership standards fall under stricter rules, with nnvting stck being attributable. He nted that the cmmissin enfrced the alien wnership rules when it required Rupert Murdch t becme a U.S. citizen befre he culd purchase Metrmedia. Clsing the first sessin was a debate n FCC takever plicy between frmer FCC Cmmissiner Steven Sharp, f Skadden, Arps, Slate, Maegher & Flm, and Henry Geller, frmer FCC general cunsel and directr f the Washingtn Center fr Public Plicy Research. The sessin was mderated by Richard Wiley f Wiley & Rein. Geller said the FCC's takever plicy sub-

135 verted the public interest cnsideratins f the Cmmunicatins Act by clearing the way fr the sale f statins t "traffickers" wh had n interest in running them. Sharp felt the takever plicy was cnsistent with the act and clearly balanced public interest cncerns with the practical cnsideratins f a mdern business envirnment. At the secnd sessin, the fcus was n business issues that affect the sale f cmmunicatins prperties. Brian Jhnsn f Piersn, Ball & Dwd, wh talked abut drafting sales agreements, pinted ut special areas f cncern fr bth buyers and sellers. He underscred the need fr prper warranties fr perfrmance, an adequate depsit fr the sale (typically 5%), prvisins requiring FCC apprval, landlrd and netwrk agreements and an understanding f lcal laws and cvenants. Jhnsn als recmmended an as -built survey f statin prperty and suggested an utside appraisal f the statin. Nting that many lawsuits have been filed ver the interpretatin f letters f intent, he underscred the need t draft these letters carefully. Brkers and investment bankers are n the frnt lines f statin sales and wrk with the nuts and blts f negtiatins. Je Sitrick f Blackburn & C., and Steve Rattner, managing directr f Mrgan Stanley, ffered their views n financing and appraising a sale. Sitrick explained the prcess f appraising by pinting ut the varius cmpnents making up the value f statin. They include the quality f the technical facilities, pwer, antenna and physical plant, and a cmparisn with cmpetitrs' facilities. An appraiser shuld als check whether the facilities can be upgraded. The market is als a vital cnsideratin, especially fr televisin and independent televisins, including the number f UHF and VHF statins and whether there is enugh prduct t supprt the statin and the cst f prgraming. Sitrick said that high prgram csts have destryed many independent TV statins. And he nted that pr prduct cannt draw the audience necces- ls6m LDnQ Anti -takever measure. United Cable Televisin bard mved at Nv 6 meeting t thwart ptential hstile takevers, tw weeks after prpsed merger with United Artists was called ff in wake f stck market crash and prtests frm majr sharehlders ver deal's terms (BROADCASTING, Oct. 26).

Other factrs that need t be cnsidered include: the health f the market ( prices are currently depressed in il belt statins); the state f the ecnmy, especially interest rates, and pending legislatin such as the prpsed transfer tax (see page 130). Rattner, speaking fr the investment side, divided his cmments int tw parts: befre the crash and after. Previusly, he said, there had been a "straight -line" imprvement in the types and amunts f financing available, with banks being especially aggressive in cmmunicatins. Cmmunicatins prperties have drawn the attentin f financiers fr their increasing cash flws, high resale and a liquid market fr resale. The mst dramatic change was the rise f the junk bnd market, which Rattner said has played a majr rle in the rise f prices. That rise has been accmpanied by a need fr increased equity that Rattner said had generated the grwth f private equity pls, like ML Media Partners, private capital pls, like TA Assciates and Bstn Ventures, and brader pls that perate beynd the cmmunicatins industry, such as KKR. Accrding t Rattner, the crash changed that picture. Banks have nt pulled back because they are well secured in their lans, but the junk bnd market is essentially clsed. Equity investrs remain a questin. With the market dwn 30%, Rattner said equity investrs are having a hard time being cnvinced that a statin r cable system shuld be bught fr a certain multiple f cash flw, when the stck can be purchased fr a much lwer rate. Rattner predicted a dwnward trend in prices and sme retrenching as certain sales have been put n hld, cancelled r renegtiated. He said the current situatin invlves a return t mre nrmal methds f financing with investrs being mre selective. The days f financing almst any media sale with little r n equity are "behind us," Rattner said. The final participant in the cnference was Karl Kellar, f Jnes, Day, Reavis & Pgue, wh spke n the changes in tax law and their effect n sales. Kellar said the new tax laws have created changes in the nature f wnership, frm traditinal crpratins, which are treated as separate taxable entities t flw -thrugh crpratins. Traditinal crpratins first pay taxes n earnings and when disbursements are made t stckhlders, sharehlders must pay tax n the incme, essentially being taxed twice. Many media firms are mving quickly t becme flw- thrugh crpratins where earnings g directly t the sharehlder, aviding the duble tax. Kellar said stck and asset sales are imprtant cnsideratins t the parties in a sale, since they pertain directly t the amunt f depreciatin and ther tax shelters available. The participants presented papers n their tpics which the FCBA has cmpiled int a bk: Cmmunicatins Practice, the Transactinal Side. Bradcasting Nv

McKee, chairman and chief executive fficer, WTVT- TV Tampa, Fla., detailed his effrts in imprving cmmunity relatins since taking ver the CBS affiliate in the 14th ranked market. McKee emphasized that the spirit f minrity wnership is t make an impact, bth within the statin and the cmmunity. Since taking ver, McKee has been essential in effecting changes in bth. He hired a black female reprter; prir t the acquisitin, the statin had n black, n -air reprters. He als hired Cle Cabrera, the current Miss Flrida/USA (the first black t hld that title), t hst a weekly fashin and csmetics feature. Within the cmmunity, McKee has wrked with Tampa Mayr Sandra Freedman and a calitin f black and white business and cmmunity leaders t imprve race relatins there. At Freedman's request, he was recently the keynte speaker at a seminar in Tampa n the subject. Wrvr- -TV was acquired fr abut $365 millin, the third largest TV deal in histry. The acquisitin has caused cntrversy because it was McKee's partner, Gerge Gillett, wh prvided the mney fr the purchase. Obtaining first radi statin "Hw t btain ther peple's mney: A practical guide t buying yur first radi statin," mderated by Erwin Krasnw, partner in the Washingtn law firm f Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard, McPhersn & Hand, was a discussin f the hurdles and pitfalls that prspective radi wners must vercme. Glenn Mahne, president f Rac -Jn Bradcasting Crp., cautined future wners that "unless they had the capital t btain at least 51% cntrl f a statin, they will NBMC: Facing the challenges wind up with a jb, nt a statin." Mahne went n t say it is essential fr future wners t have sme base -line expertise r smene n bard wh des. Panelist Chesley Maddx, vice president Ameritrust C. f Ohi, emphasized the imprtance f experience in wnership. "Management experience in a single wner r depth f management experience in grup wnership is the mst heavily weighted criteria when applying fr a lan," said Maddx. Als, she said, it is better fr buyers t acquire established statins. Radi syndicatin "It is the respnsibility f the syndicatr t be sensitive t the needs f the prgramer," said syndicatr Lee Bailey, president and executive prducer f Radiscpe. "My jb is t cnfrnt the prblems f radi prgramers and find slutins," said Bailey. One f thse prblems is knwing what prgram will wrk fr a particular statin. Accrding t Carl Cruckshank, manager f affiliate relatins, MJI Bradcasting f New Yrk, a syndicatr shuld examine a statin's needs fr the market and frmat. After a prgramer chses a prgram, the syndicatr can then tailr r persnalize that prgram fr the statin. One way f persnalizing a prgram is t leave space within a feature fr a statin t give its call letters. This lcalizes the natinal prgram fr lcal listeners. Accrding t Barry May, vice president and general manager f LARKS -FM New Yrk, many large market statins are hesitant abut carrying syndicated prgrams because they are then bligated t relinquish 'spts' t the syndicatr. Traditinally, many f these prgrams are aired n a barter basis, which require the statin t air six t eight minutes f natinal cmmercials. May says he is "unwilling t give up inventry fr a less than exceptinal prduct." T make their shw mre attractive and marketable, accrding t May, "sme syndicatrs, t gain an edge, are ffering mney t radi statins t run their shw." Statins are mre inclined t carry a shw that has been cleared in ther markets. Minrity preference Minrity preference plicies and ways t strengthen thse plicies were discussed at length. If minrity preference is t wrk, said Vince Pepper, Pepper & Crazzini, it is essential that the wnership is "reflected in the peratin f the statin and in the crn - munity invlvement." Pepper questins the value f having a minrity wner wh is qualified and has the mney t buy a statin, but never visits the statin and has n invlvement in the cmmunity. As a psitive example, Pepper cited McKee, the wner f wrvt -TV, fr the impact he has made at the statin and within the cmmunity. The distress sale plicy was characterized as a penalty rather than a benefit. Many distress sale statins are smene's "headache" in an unattractive market, said Pepper. An wner f ne these statins might be able t make an impact n the cmmunity with better prgraming, but that wner will seldm be able t make a prfit. "And why shuldn't a black r any minrity wner be cmpensated fr their effrts? ", questined Pepper. First Amendment The media and the First Amendment sessin quickly turned int a discussin f the value f the fairness dctrine and whether it is a benefit r hindrance fr bradcasters and the public. The argument f a market versus gvernment regulated media arse when Pete O'Cnnell, attrney and president f the Federal Cmmunicatins Bar Assciatin, said the system wrks because the peple make their displeasure knwn t the media and the media respnds t it. O'Cnnell said the questin is wh shuld decide the utcme f disagreements between the public and the purveyrs f infrmatin, and whether thse questins shuld be settled thrugh appinted gvernment fficials r thrugh the nrmal "ebb and flw f cnflict between the peple wh are putting up thse messages and the peple wh are ultimately paying t hear them." The argument against O'Cnnell's pint was that the media is unrespnsive t the public and the public des nt have access t the media, especially the electrnic media. The pint was made that print media is mre accessable t the public with its p /ed pages. Further, when TV statins d present public pinin prgraming, it is usually during late night r early mrning time perids.

Thse bradcasts will be taken ver by CBS News crrespndent Bill Whitney. Osgd's fur -and -a -half minute Newsbreak series, which is fed each weekday at 8:30 a.m., will becme ne f the new Osgd File reprts. "Our affiliates thught we weren't using the netwrk's biggest star [Charles Osgd] as well as we culd," said Bb Hsking. CBS Radi president. "S we decided t get Osgd ff the news and nt a mre regular [prgram] basis in mrning drive." Hsking expects the 7 a.m. newscast t maintain its high statin clearance level. which cntributes t its tp ratings, nce Osgd leaves. (Mst f the netwrk's plus affiliates clear bth the 7 and 9 a.m. Osgd newscasts.) "Statins wuld nt affiliate with CBS News if they didn't want t clear mst f the netwrk's newscasts," Hsking said. T make way fr the fur mrning drive Osgd File prgrams, tw ther CBS shws will be drpped frm the mrning lineup. They are the Sprts Wrld Rundup, which is hsted by Hward David and is fed at 6:45 a.m., and Yur Dllars, hsted by Marshall Leb, managing editr f Frtune magazine, and fed at 9:25 a.m. Affiliates generally will nt carry mre than tw netwrk prgrams per hur in the mrning, Hsking said, in explaining the mve. Anther frmat switch invlves First Line Reprt, the news and analysis series anchred by Judy Muller. The weekday prgram will mve frm a 6:30 a.m. feed t midday at 12:25 p.m., and will be retitled Crrespndent's Ntebk. Cncurrent with the new prgraming agenda, CBS said it will adpt a plicy f "cmmercial flexibility" as a way fr affiliates t ffer lcal advertisers "greater pprtunities t be assciated with the CBS News prduct." Fr the first time in its lng histry, the CBS Radi Netwrk will let affiliated statins insert lcal spts within all hurly newscasts and feature bradcasts by allwing them t air the secnd netwrk spt ut f the specific prgrams, but within an hur f the shw's scheduled feed time. (Similar practices are cmmn at mst ther majr radi netwrks). Currently, CBS affiliates can nly run netwrk spts within netwrk prgraming. Under the new frmat, affiliates wuld air the netwrk's first 60- secnd spt in the six - minute hurly newscast, which will ccur after three minutes. They can then use the last 60- secnd netwrk spt at the five -minute break fr lcal sales, delaying the netwrk cmmercial fr later that hur. "This change will give statins an pprtunity t make mre mney," Hsking said. The bradcast will resume after the secnd spt with a sign -ff. Additinally, statins will n lnger have t carry the hurly newscasts fr the entire six minutes. Affiliates, said Hsking, will have the ptin f cutting away frm the bradcast either after the first netwrk spt Osgd at the fur -minute mark r after five minutes. (All hurly newscasts are fed n -thehur.) "The prgraming mves g back t the questin: 'What can the netwrk d t strengthen its statins' psitin in the marketplace and therefre strengthen itself?' The answer is t prvide flexibility nt nly in sales, but in prgraming," said Hsking. "All f ur affiliates' needs are different." In ther areas, the CBS Radi Netwrk will expand its newsfeed service t include mre news and sprts cuts, a daily audi archive feed f histric tape, and three 60- secnd "cmmercial -free" business updates each weekday. All f the majr crrespndents fr the CBS Radi Netwrk will cntribute t the newsfeed service, said Hsking. CBS will increase the service's weekday peratin frm six hurs t 18 hurs per day (3 a.m. -9 p.m. NYT), the CBS Radi president said. "The peratin will be a little shrter n the weekend," he said. CBS will als institute a "hard- cpy" cmmunicatin service that will send affiliates, via satellite and a cmputer hk -up at the statin, printed data such as newsfeed lead -ins, audi cut descriptins and crisis cverage infrmatin. "These changes cme at a critical [increasing netwrk cmpetitin] time in the radi business," said Je Abel, executive vice president and general manager f KIRO- (AM) Seattle, wh als serves as CBS Radi Netwrk Affiliate Bard chairman. "We as an affiliate bard are very pleased with the steps that the netwrk is taking." The bard apprved the new netwrk and newsfeed schedule three weeks ag at a meeting in New Yrk. Hsking tld BROADCASTING that CBS began thinking abut frmat changes fr the netwrk nearly a year ag. Nne f the mdificatins t CBS Radi Netwrk will affect RadiRadi, CBS's yuth- riented netwrk.

Cl Octber demgraphic ratings fr checkerbard schedules are mixed They have leveled ff r decreased in vernights n all but ne NBC O &O The checkerbard schedule that runs n live f the NBC -wned statins emerged last week frm what has been hailed as its first real ratings test -the demgraphic results f the Octber ratings bk (Sept. 24 -Oct. 21 in Nielsen and Sept. 23 -Oct. 20 in Arbitrn). There was a decrease in thse demgraphic ratings in three f the markets - New Yrk, Chicag, and Washingtn -and increases in Ls Angeles and Cleveland. Fllwing its Sept. 14 debut in access, the checkerbard f five first -mn syndicated cmedies initially psted strng husehld ratings in vernights in each f the five markets. Since then, hwever, the checkerbards have leveled ff r decreased in the vernights n all but ne f the statins, WRC -TV Washingtn. NBC statin divisin president, Al Jerme, and vice president f prgraming, Wes Hams, have said in the past that the vernight husehld ratings that have shwn the checkerbards trending dwnward are nt as signficant as demgraphic ratings in determining the success f the checkerbard. In Nielsen ratings in Ls Angeles, KNBC(TV) psted its strngest gains amng wmen and wmen 25-54, rising 60% and 65% respectively in thse categries. Amng men, and 25-54, the checkerbard ranked fifth and furth in the market. In the Octber 1986 bk KNBC finished seventh in thse male categries with Card Sharks. WNBC -TV New Yrk was cited as perhaps the biggest demgraphic disappintment, accrding t Kathryn Lenard, vice president f research fr the NBC statins. The checkerbard decreased the statin's delivery f wmen and frm Octber 1986 by rughly a third in the Octber 1987 bk. Amng thse men and the statin was ff 11% and 16% respectively. In all fur male and female categries the statin went frm third t furth place in the market cmpared t Octber In Cleveland (in Arbitrn), WKYC -TV psted large increases in men and 25-54, rising 65% and 56% respectively in thse categries, pushing the statin frm furth t third place in the market in each. Amng wmen, the checkerbard was up 2% within and dwn 7% within cmpared t Octber On WMAQ -TV Chicag, the checkerbard had a 16% drp in ratings fr men and caused a fall frm secnd t third place in the market cmpared t last year, and a 25% drp in men 25-54, which caused a fall frm secnd t furth place. The statins fell 16% and 19% amng wmen and but held secnd place in the market anyway. In Washingtn, WRC -TV held furth place in all fur demgraphic categries despite rising in nly ne, men 25-54, where it was up 13 %. On a night by night basis, Lenard said that a preliminary lk at the data shws Tuesday night (She's the Sheriff) and Thursday, (Out f this Wrld) t be the tw strngest perfrmers amng the five shws amng ttal adults. The weakest night s far is Friday (We Gt it Made), she said. On the ther tw majr market statins carrying checkerbards, CBS -wned WCAU- TV Philadelphia, and independent WXON(TV) Detrit, Octber demgraphic ratings were als nt encuraging. In Arbitrn ratings, wxon(tv) remained in fifth place amng men and wmen and 25-54, as it was in Octber, 1986, when it carried $100,000 Pyramid. The checkerbard did manage t increase the statin's 7-7:30 p.m. husehld average, hwever, frm a 4/6 in Octber 1986 t a 5/8 in Octber In Arbitrn rankings in Philadelphia, WCAU fell frm furth t fifth place amng men 25-54, and frm third t furth place amng wmen and wmen Amng men the statin held furth place in the market.

I, If the FCC des s, the heretfre vluntary standard wuld becme mandatry. Incrprating the s- called NRSC standard in its rules wuld "prvide substantial industry-wide and public benefits," the NAB said in its petitin. "Such actin will reduce AM interference, increase useful AM service areas and encurage the prductin f higher fidelity receivers." The NRSC, a grup f bradcasters and receiver manufacturers, adpted a vluntary standard fr AM last January that prescribed a preemphasis curve f audi prcessing by bradcasters and a cmplementary deem - phasis curve fr radis. The standard als called n bradcasters t limit the audi bandwidth f prgraming t 10 khz befre transmissin. Prpnents f the standard have maintained that widespread adherence t the standard wuld reduce secnd -adjacent channel interference and lead t the prliferatin f wideband AM radis with higher fidelity- perhaps as much as 10 khz. Mst f tday's radis have fidelity f less than 5 khz.

Cntacted last week, Rau said that 422 statins had returned written cnfirmatin f the cnversin. Hwever, based n sales reprts frm cnversin kit manufacturers, Rau estimated the actual number f statins that had cnverted r were planning t cnvert at clser t 800. Last summer, NAB predicted that abut 1,000 statins-20%--wuld cnvert by the end f 1987 (BROADCASTING, July 27). NAB has been cnducting a $28,000 lbbying campaign t cnvince AM bradcasters t invest in the necessary equipment t make their statins cnfrm t the standard. Its effrts have included a direct mailing t AM bradcasters last spring and fllw -up phne calls, a special slgan and lg and technical demnstratins at several cnventins and reginal meetings. NRSC cnversin kits, available thrugh manufacturers including Orban Assciates, Texar Inc., Circuit Research Labs, Innvnics and Energynics, cst abut $700. "Disappintment that the standard isn't prgessing a little further," Rau said, was part f the reasn that the NAB decided t seek an FCC rulemaking. He bserved that many statins agree with NRSC philisphically, "but are unwilling t make the cmmitment until there is sme assurance that everybdy else in the industry is ging t make the cmmitment."

Hwever, NAB emphasized that its recmmendatin was t amend the rules gverning AM bradcasters nly and that it was "nt ur intentin t recmmend that the FCC require receiver manufacturers t incrprate NRSC characteristics in their prducts" (emphasis is NAB's). Instead, widespread bservance f the standard, the petitin said, wuld be an incentive fr manufacturers t prduce high -fidelity AM receivers. NAB als pinted ut that mandatry bservance f NRSC wuld nt vilate the present cmmissin's philsphy f aviding verregulatin in that it wuld fall under the FCC's general respnsiblity f spectrum management. "This statutry prvisin clearly applies t radi statin equipment that affects the interference ptential f that statin's emissins," the petitin said. The FCC shuld act, the NAB said, because NRSC incrpratin int the rules wuld be "prima facie in the public interest" because interference reductin wuld enhance the quality f receptin and increase the number f AM statins available t listeners, adding t their chice f prgraming.

The netwrk als reprted there are strng indicatins that it will eventually sign ther MSO's, including TeleCable, Rgers, Cntinental and Prime Cable, t new affiliatin agreements. But the netwrk is getting anther cmpetitr in the ecumenical channel that TCI is helping t put tgether, which may inhibit The Inspiratinal Netwrk's (TIN's) effrts t maintain r increase its cable reach. Jhn McEntee, directr f cable marketing fr the Inspiratinal Netwrk, met with several cable peratrs in early Nvember and said that "things went well." TCI is reinstating the netwrk in partial r full frm n three systems -Farmingtn, N.M.; Muskegn, Mich., and Daytna Beach, Fla. -representing rughly 77,000 subscribers. McEntee presented a petitin signed by 2,500 f the 16,000 subscribers f the Jnes Intercable system in Augusta, Ga., t Jnes crprate fficials, asking that the channel be reinstated. Jnes was expected t get back t TIN in a few weeks, and indicatins were that the netwrk wuld g back n as part f a cmpsite religius channel. The Daniels signing represents 201,000 subscribers, said McEntee. The netwrk als signed Maclean- Hunter's systems in Michigan, serving rughly 60,000 subscribers. The cntracts are the first in which TIN has charged a fee, and althugh McEntee wuld nt release details, he said the cntract was based n the three cents per subscriber per mnth that TIN has prpsed. McEntee des nt see a large audience fr the new ecumenical channel being backed by TCI, and spent much f his time in Denver trying t reeducate cable peratrs n what TIN is all abut. The ecumenical channel, said McEntee, nly "has a small ptential fr a significant viewing audience." TIN already has the best quality religius prgraming available, he said, and has prgraming frm Jewish, Cathlic, Presbyterian and Methdist grups. The bulk f viewers that watch religius prgrams n televisin, said McEntee, d s fr charismatic reasns. "The ecumenical channel will nt reach the viewers f religius televi- sin," said McEntee. "The cable industry is just causing themselves anther prblem." McEntee sensed that United Cable and Jnes Intercable had shwn an interest in the new service, but he felt cnfident "even thse MSO's will keep The Inspiratinal Netwrk in markets where there is verwhelming interest." McEntee hpes that the backlash against the Bakkers and TIN is behind it, and wn't remain a lingering cause fr peratrs t chse the new ecumenical service ver TIN's. The episde "is ver," said McEntee. "It's gne, and that which remains is very, very gd." As lng as the curts have jurisdictin ver PTL (the parent cmpany which wns TIN) -at least five t seven years based n the debt repayment schedule, said McEntee -the Bakkers wn't be allwed t return.

"Impulse systems have an enrmus advantage ver CSR /ARU systems; ANI is a less cstly, less effective impluse substitute, generating 50 %-80% f hardware impulse buy rates," Warner said.

The mst successful PPV cable systems are seeing increased basic and pay penetratins, 100% + buy rates and revenue $6 t $8 per mnth per subscriber, but Warner estimated that if thse factrs were met, basic and pay penetratin culd increase further, 200% + buy rates culd be achieved and the revenue per mnth per subscriber culd reach $12 fr PPV.
