  • OMNI RULED OUT: SPECULATION OVER LOCATION OF NEW HAWKS ARENA

         Turner Broadcasting executives have "narrowed their options"
    to three locations for a new arena for the Hawks and possibly an
    NHL franchise, according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.  Henry
    Unger and Maria Saporta report that  Turner officials have ruled
    out renovating the Omni, and are concentrating on a location
    downtown, a site in Doraville, and a north Fulton location.
    Turner officials are in the process of "sorting out the facts and
    figures" of the three sites before presenting them to company
    chief Ted Turner who will have the final decision.  Turner:
    "Personally, I hope it is downtown or near downtown" (Unger &
    Saporta, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/11).
