MEDIA NOTES

     On Monday, the Cable Television & Communications Association
of IL filed a complaint with the IL Commerce Commission charging
Ameritech with illegally entering the field of cable TV.  The
trade group presented regulators with a July 15 letter from an
Ameritech official outlining Ameritech's plans to enter the cable
industry.  The group wants the commission to investigate what
Ameritech is doing and whether the company is "illegally charging
ratepayers to build a cable system" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES,
9/20)....In Baltimore, Milton Kent notes David Letterman's many
jokes about CBS Sports: "Letterman's jokes help feed a
perception, warranted or not, that CBS Sports is ailing or,
worse, worn down by a series of losses of valuable properties,
announcers and production staff" (Baltimore SUN, 9/21)....
