Ken Woroner, Sony Pictures Home EntertainmentAssociated Press Kirk Cameron is featured in a scene from "Left Behind: World at War," the straight-to-video sequel in Cameron's series of flicks about Armageddon. The DVD was released Tuesday. 'Left Behind' screenings precede release on DVD David Germain Associated Press LOS ANGELES The filmmakers of "Left Behind: World at War" figured a little preaching to the choir would help market the Christian-themed thriller. They preceded the movie's DVD release Tuesday with screenings at about 3,200 churches across the United States and Canada, hoping to build word-of-mouth for the straight-to-video sequel in Kirk Cameron's series of films about Armageddon. Cloud Ten Pictures, which produces the "Left Behind" movies, did not yet have attendance estimates on how many people caught "World at War" during the weekend screenings. But the company went into the weekend projecting as many as 1.8 million people would attend the church viewings, a potential army of disciples who could help promote the DVD sales. The company also had a "spiritual objective, which was to make this film accessible in Cloud Ten provided churches with DVD copies of the new movie for license fees ranging from $69 to $199, depending on the congregation sizes. Churches were free to decide if they would charge admission, and those that did planned to use the money for their, local ministries or such charities as soup kitchens and aid to hurricane victims, Lalonde said. "Cloud Ten has really become expert at targeting the Christian community," said Suzanne White, vice president of marketing for Sony's home-entertainment division, which released the "Left Behind" DVD. "The way they handled the previous 'Left Behind' movies was very novel as well. They get a lot of publicity from just doing things differently."

Replacing Howard Stern is a task for many mouths Associated Press NEW YORK Goodbye, Howard Stern. Hello, David Lee Roth. And Adam Carolla. And CNN Radio News. And Jack-FM. And ... Infinity Broadcasting Corp., finally revealing its plans to replace the self-proclaimed "King of All Media," announced a new morning drive time lineup Tuesday of assorted hosts for its 27 soon-to-be former Stern stations. Rather than turning to a single replacement, Infinity offered a variety of names for different markets. The biggest belonged to ex-Van Halen front man Roth and comedian Carolla. Roth, who appeared Tuesday morning on Stern's . nationally syndicated show to announced the move, will start in January on WXRK-FM in New York; WBCN-FM in Boston, WYSP-FM in Philadelphia, WRKZ-FM in Pittsburgh, WNCX- fSlllrl Roth FM in Cleveland, WPBZ-FM in West Palm Beach and KLLI-FM in Dallas. Carolla, known for his comedy work on "The Man Show" and "Loveline," takes over on the Infinity stations in Los Angeles (KLSX-FM), San Diego (KPLN-FM), Phoenix (KZON-FM), Portland, Ore., (KUFO-FM) and Las Vegas (KXTE-FM). "When we set out to find a replacement for Howard Stern, we took the opportunity to cultivate a wide array of talent, from both in and out of the radio industry," said Joel Hollander, Infinity's chairman and CEO. Stern is on the air through the end of this year, before he makes the leap from terrestrial radio to Sirius Satellite Radio. Infinity stations in Sacramento, Buffalo, N.Y., and Fresno, Calif., will replace Stern by switching to the "Jack" format, which features expanded play lists of hundreds of songs but includes no disc jockeys. A dozen other Infinity stations will replace Stern with anything from talk radio to Tim Warner Inc.'s CNN Radio News. Rover, a disc jockey heard in Ohio, will expand his show into Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Memphis and Rochester, N.Y. Washington-based morning hosts The Junkies will add Baltimore as an outlet, while WOCL-FM in Orlando will feature the team of Drew and Mel while KXBT-FM in Austin will air Star &BucWild. Man charged in tussle with Harding aneasy way to the Chi3ti;ryvsingle screening at a church m community" said Peter Laloncfef Anchorage, AlaskaTNew Life:',; who co-founded Cloud Ten with his brother, Paul. "Instead of bringing Christians to the theaters, we brought the theaters to the Christians." Adapted from the "Left Be-' hind" book series, the movies star Cameron, best known for the TV sitcom "Growing Pains," as a reporter investigating the rise to power of an anti-Christ figure and the coming battle between good and evil prophesied in the Bible. The latest movie co-stars Lou Gossett Jr. as the U.S. president. "World at War" is the third movie in the series, following 2000's "Left Behind" and 2002's "Left Behind II: Tribulation Force." Christian Center, an interde nominational church in Stigler, Okla., had nearly 200 people at a free screening it held Friday night. ,-. . "When we got the opportunity to have a world premiere at our church, we thought it was a phenomenal cutting-edge way to bring the gospel to people in our community," said the Rev. Angela Stevens, co-pastor of the Oklahoma church with husband Rick. If Christians turn out in force for such films, it encourages producers to tell more religious-themed stories, "so we're making our voices heard as far as the types of movies coming out," Stevens said. Associated Press . . VANCOUVER, Wash. Tonya Harding tussled in her home with a man she described as her boyfriend, prompting an emergency call by the figure skater-turned-boxer and an arrest of the man.
