NEW QUOTREK 6.0 PROVIDES DOW JONES NEWS HEADLINES, MARKET LEADERS, SPORTS SCORES AND ODDS ON PORTABLE RECEIVER

 SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest release of QuoTrek, the popular hand-held portable financial data receiver, will allow subscribers to receive Dow Jones News Headlines and up-to-the- minute sports scores, headlines and odds information in addition to real- time market quotes.
 Data Broadcasting Corp.'s (NASDAQ: DBCC) (DBC) QuoTrek 6.0 will now also display the Top 10 percentage gainers, losers and volume leaders for NYSE, AMEX and OTC stocks and stock options.
 QuoTrek, the leading portable wireless receiver of financial information, gets its data over a satellite and FM-radio network covering 43 major North American metropolitan areas. The same financial market and sports data is transmitted via FM, cable and satellite networks to DBC's PC-based product, Signal. In all, DBC serves customers in more than 5,400 North American cities.
 "Investors who can now keep up with financial news headlines as well as quotes will be able to make more timely and informed trades," said DBC Vice President Fred McEnany. "We are very excited about providing our customers the kind of tools they need to make more money in today's fast-moving financial environment."
 QuoTrek 6.0 will capture and store Dow Jones News Headlines for every symbol in the subscriber's portfolio. Whenever a headline comes in, an alert is triggered notifying the subscriber that it has arrived. QuoTrek 6.0 subscribers will also have access to sports headlines, real-time updates on pro and major college sporting events -- including details on who scored and how, and up-to-the-minute odds changes direct from Las Vegas.
 QuoTrek is a portable, hand-held, battery-powered receiver that displays market data on an LCD screen. DBC also sells "The Sporting News" SporTrax (general sports) and the "Daily Racing Form" RaceTrax (horse racing results), which are modified versions of QuoTrek. Last year DBC added the sports and horse racing datafeed from DataSport Inc. to its own network.
 DBC is the leading provider of stock market quote services and other specialized market data vital to subscribers worldwide. Data Broadcasting's main product lines include QuoTrek and Signal, which are used primarily by individual investors, and Shark, which produces a terminal and datafeed used by securities industry professionals.
