NUGGETS GAMES COULD LAND ON BROADCAST KWGN-TV AFTER ALL

          Some Nuggets games this season "still could be
     broadcast on KWGN," because talks between the station and
     Fox Sports Rocky Mountain (FSRM) have reopened, sources tell
     Vicki Michaelis of the DENVER POST.  KWGN, the Nuggets' home
     for all but two of the past 20 years, "might carry up to 15
     games, alleviating some concern that the Nuggets would be
     aired only on cable this season."  FSRM's talks with KWGN
     "initially broke off because KWGN has asked for
     significantly higher air-time fees" for Nuggets broadcasts
     this season.  Michaelis adds that while "it's unlikely KWGN
     is lowering its demands," FSRM "is believed to be willing
     now to pay the higher price" (DENVER POST, 9/26).
