  • RAMS BOOST RADIO FEES TO $700,000 MORE THAN L.A. DEAL

         The Rams will award their radio rights to KSD-AM in St.
    Louis, according to this morning's ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. It
    will mark the first time that St. Louis "sports powerhouse" KMOX
    will not be the main home of a major local team since obtaining
    the rights to the Cardinals 40 years ago.  Marc Ganis, who has
    been handling the negotiations for the Rams, "would not disclose
    the winning bid."  But sources told the POST-DISPATCH it was at
    least $3.1M annually, close to $700,000 more than the team
    received last year in L.A. KMOX's final bid for the rights was
    reportedly $2.4M.  KMOX GM Rod Zimmerman:  "We offered well above
    the market value for them" (Caesar & Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-
    DISPATCH, 5/4).

  • TCI AND HEARST TO START ONLINE SERVICE FOR THE HOME

         TCI and William Randolph Hearst III will join together to
    launch an on-line computer service via TV cable.  The company to
    be unveiled tomorrow will be called at Home, and will have
    "ambitious plans" to offer on-line services to its 11 million
    cable customers starting early '96.  TCI will be majority owner
    of the venture, partnering with Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers,
    a Silicon Valley venture capital firm where Hearst is a partner.
    TCI "expects for its cable hook-up to connect to a variety of on-
    line services, such as America Online, Prodigy and CompuServe and
    the Internet network."  The cost would range between $20-30 a
    month for the service (Mark Robicahaux, WALL STREET JOURNAL,
    5/4).  By connecting coaxial cable to TVs as well as PCs, at Home
    hopes to provide access to the Internet at "speeds 100 times as
    fast as those used now" (Peter Lewis, N.Y. TIMES, 5/4).
