1 REPUBLIC ALL LU iiUNS D-8 Fri., Feb. 11, 1977 The Arizona Republic PTL negotiates for Channel 21 The PTL Television Network of Charlotte,. N.C., is currently negotiating to purchase debt-ridden KPAZ-TV (channel 21) from Glad Tidings Church, Inc. Harvey Watson, a management and financial consultant for the North Carolina network, said Thursday it would purchase the KPAZ as soon lif f'fii't-fft as an aSi"eement can be worked out olrJjy M an Federal Communication Commis-tmwnwi,Tm sjon appr0vai can be obtained. In purchasing the station, Watson said, PTL, which produces religious' programming but owns no stations as yet of its own, would assume both the assets and liabilities of KPAZ,, including about $1.6 million in bond certificates held largely by its viewers. "We would not consider purchasing the station unless we could satisfy everyone," Watson said. A PHOENIX COUPLE recently filed suit against KPAZ and its owner, Glad Tidings Church, Inc., also known as the Bible Fellowship Church, charging fraud In connection with the bond sales. KPAZ has not been broadcasting since Jan. 19 when the RCA Corporation repossessed its transmitter for failure to pay for the equipment. The PTL in the North Carolina network's title stands for "Praise the Lord," Watson said, but it has nothing to do with the Trinity Broadcasting Network of Santa Ana, Calif., which produced the "Praise the Lord" program formerly seen on KPAZ. TRINITY BROADCASTING, through an offshoot, Trinity Broadcasting of Arizona, tried to purchase KPAZ last year but Glad Tidings pulled out of the deal a day before it was to be considered for FCC approval. Paul Crouch, owner of Trinity, has said his network will try still to enforce its contract to purchase KPAZ. Watson said Thursday he could not say when the station might be on the air again. If FCC approval is delayed, he said, the station may go on again soon under its current ownership while if FCC approval can be facilitated, it may wait a couple of months to go back on the air with all new programming. WATSON SAID PTL, which is headed by evangelist J i m Bakkcr, produces programs directly for four Southern slates and is also a large purchaser of time on other stations throughout the country for religious programs. The company, he said, recently went through a $5 million remodeling of ils Charlotte headquarters and now is ready to purchase stations in Phoenix and possibly other cities. He said the network would encourage "balanced" religious programming and KPAZ would be open to all denominations once it takes over. - MIKE PETRYNI ICE SKATING EVERYDAY XiiV METROCENTER phone sst-siss Paul Shank's IT 1 1 I!

Chef Harry Locher has helped to bring fine dining to the V'dlley of the Sun.

That's why when you come to dinner at The Saguaro Room in Del WebbsTowneHouse, you will enjoy so many things not on the menu. Like fine music and dancing nightly. Like having your salad prepcired at your table with your meal. And you wil) see when you come for dinner that Chef Locher and his entire staff want to make your whole evening as special as the dinner itself. And when they do, that will be music to their ears, too. Complimentary valet parking Dancing nightly except Monday The Sayuani Room Ikslauianl.
