"CHATS" September 21 on America Online

New York, NY -- TELE-TV Chairman and CEO Howard Stringer

will journey into cyberspace September 21 at 8 p.m. when he chats

real time with America Online subscribers in the auditorium of

the NYNEX Technotorium.

The NYNEX Technotorium, which is available through The New York

Times @ times service on AOL, made its grand opening earlier this

month. The Technotorium contains a wide variety of information

about NYNEX and the telecommunications industry.

During the chat session, Stringer will describe TELE-TV's plans

to offer consumers a high-quality, competitively priced alternative

to cable TV. In addition, Stringer will answer questions from

AOL subscribers and share his views on the consolidation of the

media and entertainment industries, including recent mergers by

CBS and Westinghouse, Disney and ABC, and talks between Time Warner

and Turner Broadcasting.

Stringer, the former president of the CBS Broadcast Group, is

one of the most outspoken and respected executives in the entertainment

industry. He was recently named by Vanity Fair magazine as one

of the nation's 50 "media elite."
