FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

They have endorsed the October first National Media Prayer Breakfast at The

Agency. Lowell "Bud" Paxon, chairman of the PAX Television Network. Carl
Vogel, chairman of cable giant Charter Communications. Al C. Sykes,
Former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Tony Thomopolous,
former president of ABC television.
Some of Hollywood's most successful creative talents have also expressed

the Beverly Hills event: Pat Boone, for decades one of the biggest names
in pop music and film. Dean Jones, lovable star of a number of Disney film
classics and other performing roles.

and "Star Trek" films. Dave Alan Johnson, who has created and produces
