HOME SHOPPING NETWORK PROMOTES TELEMATION HEAD TO SENIOR CLUB POST

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Home Shopping Network, Inc. (NYSE: HSN) announced today that Dominic Ambrosio has been promoted to senior vice president of network operations for its subsidiary, Home Shopping Club, Inc. (HSC). Since 1990, Ambrosio has been vice president and general manager of Telemation, a video production, post-production and film division of HSN.
 In his new position, Ambrosio's responsibilities cover Club network production, broadcast operations and Telemation. He reports directly to Doug Bailey, president of the Home Shopping Club.
 Bailey said, "I have great confidence in Dominic's ability to interpret Club merchandising concepts and transfer them to our on-air look. He brings broad experience and tremendous enthusiasm to his new role."
 Ambrosio began his career in the television industry in 1979 as a messenger at CBS, fresh out of college. Six weeks later, he landed the operations coordinator post at the developing cable channel, Showtime. He reached levels of production supervisor and associate producer/on-air promotion and left Showtime in 1982 to be production manager at the short-lived Entertainment Channel, which later became the Arts & Entertainment Channel.
 From 1983 until 1987, Ambrosio gained experience in the technical side of television when he joined one of the country's largest video houses, Unitel Video, as a videotape editor. He advanced to director of operations, serving such high-profile clients as MTV, Showtime, Nickelodeon, Goldman Sachs, Air France, Sesame Street, major commercial networks and others.
 Recruited by Telemation in 1987, he began as director of operations and was promoted to vice president and general manager in 1990. Telemation has become a leading production facility, with clients such as major-league baseball, Dick Clark Productions, PBS and Norelco.
 Ambrosio said, "I've been fortunate enough to have been able to work on technical and commercial sides of the TV industry and look forward to applying what I've learned from both perspectives to the club. The retail video environment has a promising future, and I am eager to meet its challenges as part of the team of video professionals at the club."
 A communications, film and TV graduate of Seton Hall, Ambrosio earned a master's degree from New York Institute of Technology. He was recently nominated to serve on the board of Goodwill Industries.
