ALBERT'S COUNSELING PUTS END TO WFAN TRIAL BALLOON

          Despite reported talks with WFAN in New York, Marv
     Albert "is in counseling and won't take any of the job
     offers he's getting until he repairs his shattered personal
     life," according to Hinckley, O'Connor & Schwartzman of the
     N.Y. DAILY NEWS.  Albert's spokesperson Howard Rubenstein:
     "He is undergoing counseling now in an effort to straighten
     out his life and career."  Rubenstein didn't reveal any job
     offers or Albert's "timetable to return to work."  But he
     said Albert "certainly wants to resume his career at some
     time."  On Friday, the N.Y. Daily News reported that Albert
     and WFAN had been negotiating for him to join the station in
     January.  Industry sources said the station made Albert a
     "firm offer," but WFAN GM Joel Hollander called the talks
     preliminary.  MSG President Dave Checketts criticized the
     station's move: "This was a cheap, two-bit grandstanding
     move, preying on Marv at a time in his professional life
     when he is most vulnerable" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 10/11).
