NO-REPLACEMENT POLICY TO DRIVE ASTROS' '96 RADIO DECISION?

     According to Terry Blount of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE, KILT-AM
may be making a run at acquiring the Astros radio rights in '96.
When the Astros flagship station KPRC-AM "balked at carrying"
Astros' spring games with replacements, KILT "jumped at the
chance."  KILT GM Dickie Rosenfeld: "That's the reason I did it.
We are definitely going to pursue becoming the Astros' flagship
station in '96"  (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/3)....Paxson
Communications Corp. will purchase WFTL-AM of Ft. Lauderdale
allowing Paxson to expand its radio broadcast of Heat games into
Broward and Palm Beach counties (MIAMI HERALD, 3/4).
