MARV TO GO ONE-ON-ONE WITH COURIC; IS THIS RIGHT APPROACH?

          Marv Albert will return to NBC in an appearance on the
     "Today" show on November 13, according to Richard Huff of
     the N.Y. DAILY NEWS.  Albert is "expected" to appear during
     the show's first hour and stay for a "lengthy" interview
     with Katie Couric.  Albert will appear on ABC's "20/20" on
     Friday, CNN's "Larry King Live" on Monday, and CBS' "Late
     Show" on Wednesday (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 11/5).  USA TODAY's
     Rudy Martzke writes that some sports agents "doubt" that
     Albert is taking the "correct path back to broadcasting"
     following his conviction last month.  IMG Senior VP Barry
     Frank: "I just think it's best to do nothing in these
     instances and let it blow over.  The more you rehash it, the
     more you keep it out there."  RLR Associates' Bob Rosen:
     "Perhaps Marv's still in a state of denial."  But Albert's
     agent, Evan Bell, defends the appearances because people
     "want to know what happened" (USA TODAY, 11/5).
