Turner Broadcasting System Inc. will shut down CNN/SI May 15, a spokesman
said Sunday.

One-third of the sports network's 200 employees will be cut.

AOL Time Warner Inc. and the National Basketball Association hope to launch a
network later this year, tentatively called All Sports Network. The channel
would contain some former CNN/SI event programming.

CNN/SI is available in some 20 million households.
