GROUP CALLS ON NCAA TO BAN BEER ADS DURING TOURNAMENT GAMES

Published on .

(March 30, 2001) -- A group of 66 organizations including the Center for Science in the Public Interest is urging National Collegiate Athletics Association president Cedric Dempsey to ban beer ads during all tournament college basketball games. In a letter, the group, "Time to End Alcohol Marketing in Sports," said the NCAA should extend its policy of banning beer ads during the CBS telecast of this weekend's Final Four games to all tournament games, as well as pre- and postgame shows, which attract millions of underage teenagers and children. -- Ira Teinowitz
