MARV TO GO ONE-ON-ONE WITH COURIC; IS THIS RIGHT APPROACH?
Published November 5, 1997
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).
