 ATLANTA, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred A. Vierra, executive vice president of Tele-Communications, Inc. (TCI), was elected to the board of directors of Turner Broacasting System, Inc. (TBS) (AMEX: TBS) at today's meeting of the board.
 Vierra replaces Stewart Blair, who resigned his seat on the board.
 As one of three executive vice presidents for TCI, Vierra is responsible for international cable operations, international programming and domestic non-cable matters. Formerly, he was president and chief operating officer of United Artists Entertainment Company (UAE). As such, he was in charge of all day-to-day operations and ongoing strategies. The presidents of UAE's cable television and theatre division reported directly to Vierra. Prior to his service at United Artists, he was president of United Cable Television Corporation, which was merged into UAE in May 1989.
 Vierra was executive vice president, investment banking, for Daniels & Associates, the leading financial services company for the cable industry. His extensive business background includes five years experience with the Coors Industries. As vice president of sales for the Adolph Coors Company, Vierra was responsible for overseeing training, pricing, national accounts, sales administration and market expansion.
 Vierra also serves as a board member for the Walter Kaitz Foundation, The Discovery Channel, Discovery Europe, Boettcher Venture Capital, Baron Industries and TCI North Central, Inc.
 In other action taken at the same meeting, TBS' board of directors authorized the payment during 1992 of quarterly cash dividends on TBS' two classes of Common Stock and on its Class C Convertible Preferred Stock.
 The cash dividends, which would be payable on such dates, with respect to such record dates and in such amounts as may be fixed during 1992 by the Finance Committee of the Board, are subject to limitations in TBS' Credit Agreements which are based upon TBS' results of operations and, in any event, limit the annual aggregate amount of all such dividends for such classes of stock to $15 million.
