MSG TURNS THE PAGE SOONER THAN EXPECTED: IS MARV ON DECK?

          Bob Page was "yanked" as anchor of MSG Network's
     "SportsDesk," effective immediately, according to Phil
     Mushnick of the N.Y. POST.  MSG, which recently informed
     Page that his contract would not be renewed, had "originally
     planned" to keep him on-air through April, but Mushnick
     reports that Page "has publicly and privately bad-mouthed
     MSG's decision to let him go," leading to his early removal
     from the network.  Mushnick: "Speculation has mounted that
     the Garden will offer Page's position to Marv Albert" (N.Y.
     POST, 2/24).  MSG Exec Producer Mike McCarthy, on the Albert
     speculation: "That is speculation.  We've had no discussions
     with him.  I wouldn't rule anything out" (NEWSDAY, 2/24).
