 LATEST PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN INFORMATION
 AVAILABLE THROUGH SPRINT'S FONCARD
 KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- People who can't wait for the newspaper for the latest presidential campaign information -- or who don't have access to radio or television -- can use their Sprint FONCARDs to access the new Sprint Presidential Campaign Coverage hotline.
 Sprint's political hotline offers the latest information from such sources as CNN, Associated Press, United Press International and the television networks. Other available information comes from political polls -- often conducted by the news services immediately after the presidential debates.
 The political hotline is part of Sprint's Special Events Hotline, which recently provided similar news for the Winter Olympics. Sprint plans similar hotlines for upcoming events.
 Sprint's Information Line, also part of Sprint's FONCARD service, includes the latest information on such other subjects as world news, weather, sports, finance and soap operas.
 FONCARD Information Line is updated daily and Sprint's Special Events Hotline is updated within about an hour of special events. For example, Thursday's presidential debate will end at 10:30 p.m. Eastern time; FONCARD customers can have a thorough roundup of news by about 11:30.
 The Presidential Campaign Coverage hotline can be accessed by:
 -- dialing Sprint's FONCARD 800 number, 800-877-8000
 -- dialing "(Pound)36" at the first tone
 -- dialing a 14-digit FONCARD number
 -- dialing a choice, such as "4" for Sprint's Presidential
 Campaign Coverage hotline.
 Calls to the Information Line are 75 cents per minute of use.
 "People are more tuned into this campaign than any other in recent years," said Tom Weigman, Sprint's chief marketing officer. "Sprint's FONCARD Information Line provides immediate access to campaign news from any phone, anytime, anywhere."
 Other features of the FONCARD include Sprint QuickConference for 3-way calling without operator assistance, Message Delivery and FONCARDs based on customers' home phone numbers.
