          ESPN "is said to be negotiating for space inside the
     new Conde Nast Building" in NYC, where it would build a
     sidewalk studio and entertainment center, according to Paul
     Tharp of the N.Y. POST.  Sources said that ESPN "plans to
     move in first -- by early 1999 -- before Conde Nast
     relocates its 15 titles there in April 1999."  ESPN would
     broadcast from its sidewalk studios along Broadway and West
     42nd Street, "hoping to lure more than 500,000 tourists
     annually" into the entertainment center with a restaurant,
     batting cages, virtual golf and numerous interactive
     sporting games.  Disney officials said that they're "looking
     at several sites in Times Square for the ESPN-oriented
     center," but a spokesperson said that "No lease has been
     signed anywhere yet" (Paul Tharp, N.Y. POST, 4/22).
