NEXT IN LINE: In Honolulu, Ferd Lewis reported Oceanic Time Warner Cable is "moving toward the creation" of an "all-University of Hawaii channel on its statewide system." No date "was given for the debut, but signs point to the possibility of it being operational as soon as this fall."

Lewis noted Oceanic's current sports deal with UH runs through '14 and "guarantees UH a minimum of $2.3 million per year plus a share of revenues past certain thresholds" (HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER, 2/8).
