BREWERS PLEDGE THEIR SUPPORT TO PUBLIC BROADCASTING

     Officials from the Brewers were on Capitol Hill last week
"in support of public broadcasting," according to the current
issue of BROADCASTING & CABLE.  Sources say that the team wants
out of its current TV rights deal with WVTV so that they can
switch to the local public broadcasting station.  B&C reports,
"The Brewers were asking members of Congress to back a change in
public broadcasting rules allowing advertising so that PBS
affiliate WMVS there could carry the games" (BROADCASTING &
CABLE, 9/11 issue).
