  • MEDIA NOTES

              Veteran SI writer Rick Telander has accepted a position
         at ESPN Magazine (N.Y. POST, 2/6)....In DC, Leonard Shapiro
         noted that the Duke-UNC basketball game last night could not
         be seen because local provider District Cablevision does not
         carry ESPN2.  Raycom, which owns the rights to ACC
         basketball, tried to get the game on a local DC station,
         WUSA-CBS, but the CBS affil would not preempt its prime-time
         schedule (WASHINGTON POST, 2/6).  In N.Y., Steve Zipay, on
         ESPN putting Duke-UNC on ESPN2: "[D]on't tell me the game
         isn't a carrot to lure more cable subscribers into asking
         for the Deuce" (NEWSDAY, 2/6)....In Toronto, City-TV Chair
         Moses Znaimer said his broadcast group "has no plans of
         ditching" the Raptors and has begun negotiations to renew
         its four-year deal with the team (TORONTO SUN, 2/6).
