NEWS CORP. TO LAUNCH A WEEKLY SPORTS MAGAZINE?

     News Corp. named Leslie Hinton CEO of News America
Publishing to oversee Rupert Murdoch's U.S. magazines, newspapers
and newspaper-coupon companies.  Hinton's appointment "comes as
people in the magazine industry expect News Corp. ... to step up
interest in magazine publishing."  Sources say the company is
developing a sports magazine to "appeal to a young audience."
That magazine would compete with Time Warner's Sports
Illustrated.  As for Hinton, he will oversee TV Guide, Mirabella,
the New York Post and News America FSI, which inserts coupons
into daily newspapers (Patrick Reilly, WALL STREET JOURNAL, 3/7).
