This article reports on the partnership of Turner Broadcasting System with shopping malls owner, Simon Properties, to create a retail entertainment network that will combine segments from several networks with materials for mallgoers in the U.S. The unnamed 50/50 venture will start popping up in Simon's malls around the country by the end of 1999. Turner, which already operates the CNN Airport Network, is creating a separate division to oversee the mall network and will eventually appoint a general manager to oversee the group.
