MEDIA NOTES

          After Marv Albert's suspended sentence on Friday,
     speculation continued on his possible return to broadcasting. 
     Marquee Group CEO Bob Gutkowski: "I do think he has an
     opportunity to get back.  Maybe not to the level that he once
     was, but certainly on a local market and that could lead
     again to a network market" ("NBC Nightly News," 10/24).
          TWIN MATCHUPS: The Bears-Dolphins will play tonight in
     Miami and the game will be seen on ABC in the Chicago and
     Miami markets. It is the second time the World Series has
     bumped an NFL game to Monday night, as in '87, the Cardinals-
     Twins caused the Broncos-Vikings game to move to Monday
     (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/27).  USA TODAY's Rudy Martzke writes that
     Fox execs "declined comment" on the game switching to ABC. 
     Martzke says Fox will lose "about" $2M in ad revenue and the
     expense of a TV crew sent to Miami (USA TODAY, 10/27).
