FIGURE SKATING TO DRAW $1M IN CANADIAN TV RIGHTS FEES?

     The Canadian rights to the world figure skating
championships could be sold for $1M a year, according to industry
sources cited in this morning's TORONTO STAR.  The deal could
depend on how much CTV is willing to spend to reclaim the rights
from CBC.  CBC's most recent contract with the International
Skating Union (ISU) was "little more than $700,000 annually."
But one source said that a CBC offer for an extension for $1M a
year was rejected.  Negotiations between the Canadian nets and
the ISU will be handled by IMG (Ken McKee, TORONTO STAR, 12/2).
