NO SUMNER LOVE FOR BLOCKBUSTER PARK

     According to Jack Nease in Ft. Lauderdale, Viacom execs
"still won't say how they feel about the sports and entertainment
complex" that Blockbuster Entertainment Chair Wayne Huizenga
planned for a 3,000-acre site on the Dade-Broward county line.  A
Viacom spokesperson in New York: "It is not killed.  But it is
not a certainty.  It's still under review, and these things take
time."  Nease notes that "all systems were go" until the
Blockbuster-Viacom merger, but because of the amount of debt
Viacom has accumulated, "the prospect of developing a South
Florida theme park and sports complex is obviously much less
appealing" to Viacom Chair Sumner Redstone than to Huizenga (Ft.
Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 12/8).
