USA TODAY TO LAUNCH ITS OWN ON-LINE SERVICE

     USA TODAY will debut its online service April 17.  As it
develops in the coming months, the online service will have many
of the same qualities the newspaper has, according to USA TODAY
Publisher & President Tom Curley.  It will include "deep sports
coverage" from high school to college teams; comprehensive news,
business and entertainment reports; and weather forecasts.  At
launch, the service will offer up-to-the-minute news and scores
and the opportunity to interact with USA TODAY reporters.  The
online service is the first product launched by the newly formed
USA TODAY Information Network.  It will use Internet technology
supplied by the CompuServe Network connection.  Readers will
subscribe directly to USA TODAY online and will be mailed a set
of disks containing s customized version of CompuServe's Mosaic
browser to load on to their computers.  USA Today's Web site will
only be accessible via USA TODAY's online service.  The
$14.95/month price includes three hours of usage time; each
additional hour will be $3.95 (USA Today).
