22 CBS makes its plans for Campaign '80 By JOAN HANAUER NEW YORK (UPI) - Bill Leonard doesn't worry about rival network raids on his CBS News department — he's too busy working .out the $25-30 million dollars his 'network will spend on the 1980 presidential election campaign. Leonard, president of CBS News, said his plans for coverage of campaign '80 began the day after election, 1976. "Years ago," he said in an interview, "we used to think about conventions and elections. Now the primaries are the first ballots of the convention, starting shortly after the first of the year. Each primary is another ballot. By the time you get to the convention, the candidates have been selected. In the millions In very round, ballpark figures, Leonard thinks each network will spend about $25-30 million covering Campaign '80, for a three-network total of $75 to $100 million. Most of the increase over the approximately $50 mil- That's Entertainment The Salina Journal lion the networks were estimated to have spent on the 1976 presidential campaign pays tribute to inflation. Leonard said CBS will cover every primary and even some caucuses, which will enliven most Tuesday nights from late February to the middle of June. A primary campaign in Iowa, he pointed out, has become a national event, a way in which all Americans, not just lowans, can learn to know the candidates. "It's murder on the candidates," he said, "but it gives the voters a better idea who they are voting for. "This campaign is going to be interesting on both sides," Leonard said, "with the Kennedy-Carter contest, and Brown around to make it more so. There are about 12 people running on the Republican side, and we'll be covering at least three — Reagan, Connally and Ford." He was referring, of course, to Sen. Edward Kennedy, President Carter and California Gov. Jerry Brown in the Democratic brawl, and Ronald Reagan, John Connally, and former president Gerald Ford in the Republican free-for-all.

When called for, the primary results will be wrapped up in an 11:30 p.m. (Eastern time) special report. Leonard, a stocky man with white hair who often pauses to think before answering a question — something many television executives appear afraid to do — smiles ruefully about the raids ABC and NBC have made on his news department. "They look over at this field, they see all these beautiful horses who win all those races, and they think, gee, I'd like to have those horses. "Everybody knows CBS is where the people are," Leonard said, coming down to earth. "When the time comes, that this isn't true, that will be when CBS News is in trouble." While waxing philosophical about a certain amount of internetwork raiding going on all the.time, he was definite about top CBS names having contracts that don't expire for some time. He specifically mentioned Walter Cronkite, whose contract runs until he is 65 (Nov. 4, 1981), with options that run much longer, Roger Mudd, whose contract runs through 1980, and Dan Rather, whose just signed a new contract a year ago. "I'll be gone by the time his contract expires," said Leonard, 63, referring to the CBS mandatory retirement age of 65, which now is applied to executives but not to "talent" such as Cronkite. Some newsmen leave because they want to go in a specific direction that is not open to them at CBS. Bill McLaughlin, for instance, asked to cover the United Nations. Leonard told him to get a .45 pistol, go shoot Richard C. Hottelet who now has that assignment, and bring back his body. "Then we'll talk." McLaughlin went to ABC.
