  • ASCENT WANTS TO ROCK 'N ROLL ALL NIGHT AND PARTY EVERY FEY

              Ascent Entertainment named Denver's "longtime rock 'n
         roll promoter," BARRY FEY, as an entertainment consultant,
         according the DENVER POST.  Ascent CEO Charlie Lyons said
         Fey "initially will work with the Nuggets on promotions, but
         I expect he will be dealing with the Avalanche."  Fey will
         not be involved in the day-to-day operation of the teams,
         and "his primary objective will be to renew interest" in the
         Nuggets.  Fey: "I want a night at the Nuggets to be fun for
         the fans.  Sports is supposed to be about entertainment, but
         sometimes that's forgotten" (DENVER POST, 10/2).

  • NAMES IN THE NEWS

              BRYANT GUMBEL, on "Larry King Live" last night, asked
         whether he will do any work for CBS Sports: "We have talked
         about the possibility of doing something.  I'm not looking
         to go back into the sports world, and frankly they've got
         people over there who I'm a fan of and who do a wonderful
         job, and CBS Sports doesn't need Bryant Gumbel."  Gumbel, on
         whether he thinks MARV ALBERT will return to TV work: "I
         would be surprised if we see him back on television in the
         short term ... I'd be absolutely amazed" (CNN, 9/30).
