          Fox Sports and Host Marriott Services Corp. unveiled
     plans for a new bar and grill concept called "Fox Sports Sky

     Minneapolis/St. Paul Int'l Airport, and construction will
     begin later this month.  Others set to open in '99 include
     Chicago, Orlando, Phoenix and Tampa/St. Petersburg airports. 
     Each restaurant will resemble the Fox Sports studio, and
     will feature memorabilia on display, computers connected to
     Fox Sports Online, Phillips flat-screen TVs showing Fox RSNs
     via DirecTV, video games and Fox Sports merchandise (Fox).
