GOLF CHANNEL EYES RISE IN MEMBERSHIP WITH TIME WARNER DEAL

     The Golf Channel announced it has reached agreement with
Time Warner Cable, the second largest cable operator in the
country.  The deal allows individual Time Warner cable systems to
negotiate with The Golf Channel and put the channel on their
systems.  Time Warner Cable serves 11.5 million cable homes in
the United States (Golf Channel).  Also, TGC has "finally made a
breakthrough in Boston" with Cablevision introducing the channel
last week to its subscribers, according to Jack Craig of the
BOSTON GLOBE.  The channel now has 1.45 million subscribers
nationwide, but "that number is growing steadily as regional
systems are finally opening channels" (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/7).  The
Golf Channel has hired LPGA golfers Beth Daniel and Jane Geddes
as analysts (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 1/9).
