TV Note: Food's in, Court's back in new AT&T lineup

Saturday, June 02, 2001

Food, finally, food.

Subscribers to AT&T Broadband will get access to Food Network next month. Long carried by other area cable systems and satellite TV, AT&T will add Food to the expanded basic lineup on almost all of its area systems in the city of Pittsburgh and its suburbs.

Court TV, which disappeared from some suburban systems in 1998, will return.

The only loser is International Channel, which will be bumped from expanded basic to the digital tier in the sports and information bonus category.

Suburban and city customers will get the new lineup July 3. In most communities, Food Network will launch on Channel 49 (moving from Channel 63 in the few areas where it already airs) and Court TV will be on Channel 63 (in some areas it moves there from Channel 64).

In nonrebuilt areas, Food will launch on Channel 59.

In addition, Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh will move from Channel 28 to Channel 29. ESPN2 will move from Channel 29 to Channel 28. International Channel moves from Channel 49 (or Channel 59 in nonrebuilt areas) to Channel 240.

NEW TO CNN: CNN plans to launch an evening newscast this fall with ABC News veteran Aaron Brown as anchorman.

The newscast is not necessarily intended as direct competition for the newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, CNN executive Sid Bedingfield said.

"We're going after depth, enterprise reporting and engaging storytelling. We want pieces and coverage on this newscast you wouldn't find anywhere else," Bedingfield said.

Brown, 52, anchor of the Saturday edition of ABC's "World News Tonight," will also take a lead role in breaking news coverage and handle election coverage with Judy Woodruff.

CNN, beset by dwindling viewership and competition from relative newcomers Fox News Channel and MSNBC, has undergone a management shakeup and changes including the departure of longtime anchor Bernard Shaw.
