SUNSHINE NETWORK TABS NEW CHANNEL FOR LIGHTNING GAMES

     The Sunshine Network, the Lightning's broadcast-rights
holder, has named WTTA-TV to replace WTOG-TV as the team's
flagship station this season, according to the TAMPA TRIBUNE.
WTTA-TV will carry 15-20 of the minimum 50 games Sunshine agreed
to broadcast when it signed with Lightning in June through the
2001 season.  Carter Gaddis notes Sunshine GM Jim Liberatore said
the games to be shown on WTTA-TV will be "determined in about a
week."  Liberatore:   "With the increasing interest in the
Lightning, we needed to find a station that allowed us to put a
lot of games on."  He added that other stations, affiliates of
UPN and WB,  could not guarantee air time for all games due to
network commitments (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 8/7).
