Published March 27, 1998
Fox/Liberty Networks' purchase of a one-third stake in Speedvision and Outdoor Life Networks is for about $100M, according to John Dempsey of DAILY VARIETY. Roger Werner, who will stay on as President & CEO of the networks, said that a clause in the new deal allows Fox/Liberty to increase its stake to a majority ownership in the nets after three years. Speedvision reaches about 14.5 million cable and satellite homes, and Outdoor Life about 13.5 million. Werner said that Speedvision will be spending more money to bid on NASCAR races (John Dempsey, DAILY VARIETY, 3/27).
