ESPN SPORTSZONE WEIGHS IN ON SHOE COMPANIES' LABOR PRACTICES
Published April 2, 1998
ESPN SportsZone will study the issues surrounding the labor practices of athletic shoe companies during its five- part "Outside the Lines" series running April 2-8. The interactive program will serve as a companion to tonight's "Outside the Lines" special on ESPN. SportsZone will deliver original content, video footage of Asian working conditions, user polls, and an exclusive chat with "Outside the Lines" host Bob Ley. Through a bulletin board, users can also interact with a special class at the Univ. of NC that is studying shoe companies' overseas labor practices (ESPN Internet Ventures). In Raleigh, Jane Stancill reports UNC students will have electronic discussions on SportsZone. The class is entitled "Economics, Ethics and Impacts of the Global Economy: The Nike Example" (NEWS & OBSERVER, 4/2).
