 Fate of LDS Church's Promised Valley Playhouse To Be Determined By Poll
Salt Lake County residents will soon be polled to decide the fate of the Promised Valley Playhouse.

 MoTab Back On Air In Seattle
"Music and the Spoken Word," the long-running weekly LDS Church broadcast featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, returned to the air this past weekend in Seattle. KITZ-AM (1400) picked up the broadcast, carrying two half-hour programs (the current and the previous week's programs) at 8 a.m. Sunday. The program was dropped by a Seattle classical music station last year.

 'God' Cartoon Cancelled By KSL Called Blasphemy
The prime-time NBC cartoon "God, the Devil and Bob" that LDS Church-owned NBC affiliate KSL-TV declined to carry has also been dumped by several other NBC affiliates. Now Tele-evangelist Jerry Falwell has added to the controversy, saying that the show achieves, "a new echelon of blasphemy'' for network television and "does nothing but diminish the magnitude of almighty God in the minds of naive viewers."
