BASEBALL STRIKE SLOWS TRIBUNE CO.'S 3RD QUARTER EARNINGS

     The Tribune Company's combined revenues for the publishing,
broadcasting and entertainment business declined 4.3% for the
September period, showed a 5.5% increase in the 3rd quarter and
went up 9.1% for the year-to-date.  Combined broadcasting and
entertainment revenues were down 20.8%, "primarily" from the loss
of broadcasting revenues from Trib stations carrying baseball,
and the loss of Cubs revenues due to the strike.  Pure
entertainment revenues decreased 100% for the period (Tribune
Co.).
