RADIO SHACK AND SAMMONS COMMUNICATIONS REACH AGREEMENT; RADIO SHACK TO PROVIDE CABLE COMPANY CUSTOMERS WITH ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION, SAVINGS

 FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Radio Shack announced today it has reached its second cable company agreement with Dallas- based cable operator Sammons Communications to provide subscribers a 10 percent discount coupon off the retail price of television antennas and video installation accessories at Radio Shack(R) stores and participating dealers.
 This agreement provides an alternative solution to Sammons' customers who may be required to install antennas and A/B switches to receive local broadcast stations and network affiliates as a result of the 1992 Cable Act.
 "Since no one knows exactly what channels will be on Sammons' lineup after Oct. 6, this agreement with Radio Shack should prove beneficial to any of our customers who need an antenna or A/B switch to receive off-the-air stations," said Tom Soulsby, general manager of Sammons' Fort Worth cable system.
 Sammons will begin inserting coupons in customers statements this month. To receive the discount, customers must present the coupon to participating Radio Shack stores and dealers. The discount is valid through the end of the year.
 "Since this discount is also good for video installation products, it will benefit cable customers who will be installing additional outlets and need equipment," said Len Roberts, president of Radio Shack. "Sammons has taken a proactive approach, and Radio Shack is willing to provide the products, service and solutions necessary to help cable customers in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex with this situation."
 Radio Shack, a division of Tandy Corporation (NYSE: TAN), is the nation's largest retailer of television antennas and accessories. With more than 6,600 Radio Shack stores and dealers nationwide, Radio Shack is the nation's largest retailer of consumer electronics.
