WISCONSIN NETWORK NOT YET IN THE FOLD

     Wisconsin Independent Networks Sports has yet to televise
any games nearly a year after getting approval for a $300,000
loan from the state.  Network organizers had hoped to begin
providing cable viewers with Wisconsin pro, college and high
school sporting events "as early as February," but have yet to
even take out the loan.  Mike Hegan, one of the organizers of
WINS and a TV analyst for the Indians, said they are still
working on "trying to put something together."  Hegan said
organizers were "poised and ready to go" in February but were
never able to get deals with cable companies and the Brewers and
Bucks.  But Vince Sweeney, who handles TV for the Univ. of WI,
said they have not heard from WINS "in a while" and do not know
"what happened to them" (WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL, 11/16).
