VIACOM EXECS KEEPING MUM ABOUT BLOCKBUSTER PARK
Published October 6, 1994
Top Viacom execs were in Ft. Lauderdale yesterday visiting the headquarters of the company's latest acquisition -- Blockbuster Entertainment. Viacom Chair Sumner Redstone and President Frank Biondi were briefed on Blockbuster operations during a meeting that lasted much of the day. "No word on whether the executives discussed Blockbuster Park, however." Viacom has not said whether it wants to build the 3,000-acre theme park, although Blockbuster is moving forward with plans. Blockbuster has applied for approval to build the park (MIAMI HERALD, 10/6).
