SEAN MCMANUS REPORTEDLY DISMISSES THREE TOP CBS SPORTS EXECS

          CBS Sports President Sean McManus "has fired his
     division's top business affairs executives," according to
     Stephen Battaglio of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.  Sources tell
     Battaglio that three business VPs -- Doug Jacobs, Brian
     Fielding and Noel Berman -- were dismissed this week.  CBS
     declined comment, but one network exec said the moves were
     the result of McManus' "desire to handpick his own business
     affairs group" (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 1/31).
          GGP TO TWI: GGP's Bob Horowitz will replace McManus as 
     the programming negotiator at IMG's Trans World Int'l (Rudy
     Martzke, USA TODAY, 1/31).
