SURPRISE BID SUBMITTED FOR LABATT BROADCAST PROPERTIES

     Baton Broadcasting has made "an unexpected bid" for the
broadcast assets of John Labatt Ltd., while the front-runner,
Alliance Communications, "failed to meet" last week's deadline
and "is betting that the deadline is fluid."  Interbrew S.A.,
"owner-in-waiting of Labatt," received another bid from either a
group led by Astral Communications or WIC Western Int'l
Communications Ltd.  CanWest Global Communications had no comment
on whether it submitted a bid (Enchin/Strauss, Toronto GLOBE &
MAIL, 7/8).
