RUPERT MURDOCH PREPARES TO LOG ON

Old-time media meets the information superhighway: Rupert Murdoch's global News Corp. empire will buy Delphi Internet Services. It's a small deal by Murdoch standards (page 50) but a significant one: With 100,000 subscribers, Cambridge (Mass.)-based Delphi is the fifth-largest on-line information network serving home computers. News Corp. plans to use the network to distribute electronic versions of its print properties, such as TV Guide and bestsellers published by HarperCollins. In addition, the network may play host to interactive discussion groups focusing on popular Fox Broadcasting TV shows.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
