AGENT SAYS ALBERT IN TALKS REGARDING A RETURN TO SPORTS WORK

          Marv Albert's agent Evan Bell said that his client "is
     in 'serious' negotiations for at least four play-by-play and
     sports-anchor jobs," according to Laura Italiano of the N.Y.
     POST.  One of those jobs is an anchor position on MSG
     Network's "SportsDesk," while the other three involved
     basketball play-by-play.  Bell: "We're concentrating on
     basketball right now and talking to three separate entities. 
     It could be working for a team.  It could be a cable or
     over-the-air network.  But nothing will be finalized until
     after the [NBA] playoffs."  MSG execs declined comment. 
     Italiano added that "insiders" said MSG is "conducting
     market surveys to prove to advertisers that Albert's return
     would be welcomed by audiences" (N.Y. POST, 4/12).
