         New WTA CEO ANN PERSON WORCESTER is profiled in today's
    TAMPA TRIBUNE.  She "inherits an intimidating list of concerns"
    on the tour, from the absence of Monica Seles and Jennifer
    Capriati to the lack of a title sponsor for the Tour.  But she
    remains optimistic.  Person: "Sports sponsorship, it's tough.
    There are fewer dollars out there.  More sports, less money.  But
    we have had an outstanding summer of tennis this year. ... We're
    thrilled that Capriati is coming back" (H.A. Branham, TAMPA
    TRIBUNE, 9/23)....PAT GILLICK "might be interested in putting
    together a group to buy the California Angels" (Peter Pascarelli,
    THE SPORTING NEWS, 9/26 issue)....CBS Sports President DAVID
    KENIN is interviewed in the latest edition of INSIDE MEDIA.
    Kenin said CBS Sports is in a "pretty solid position to look and
    to hunt and to compete where we want to."  Kenin believes that
    the absence of major pro sports from the net's schedule reflects
    a "certain degree of cyclicality" among the network contenders.
    Kenin also hints "a lot of new things are currently happening;
    we just don't have them concluded."  Kenin:  "We would love to
    have the major league sports, but we're actually going to be more
    financially successful without them" (INSIDE MEDIA, 9/21 issue).
