     In Dallas, Barry Horn questions whether the candy wrapper on
the field that Fox's John Madden clearly identified as a Snickers
wrapper four times was actually blown from the stands.  Snickers
is a major Fox sponsor.  In other news, Horn also notes the
influx of figure skating on TV and says (with tongue-in-cheek?)
to expect Fox to announce "its own figure skating tour any day
now" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 11/22).....Beginning January 2, ABC
Radio along with BUSINESS WEEK will begin broadcasting the 60-
second "Business Week Business Reports," hourly during Monday
through Friday morning and afternoon drive times.  The reports
will be delivered from the editorial offices of BUSINESS WEEK by
its broadcaster, Ray Hoffman and from ABC Radio Networks by ABC's
Gary Nunn (COWLES BUSINESS MEDIA, 11/22).... Continental
Cablevision Corp. said yesterday that it has agreed to buy the
cable systems owned by the Providence Journal Co. in a deal
valued at $1.4B.  Continental, the nation's No. 3 cable company,
is now privately held, but will become a public company as a
result of the transaction (N.Y. TIMES, 11/23).
