The replacement buy cost the Perot camp $175,000 more than his original buy, totaling approximately $515,000. The Perot/Choate '96 campaign also plans a nightly 30-minute program on Paxson Broadcasting's INTV network of 28 stations, which mainly show infomercials. The Perot shows will air Monday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
Separately, United States Satellite Broadcasting will offer a free daily 2-minute political spot to the three presidential candidates, Bill Clinton, Bob Dole and Mr. Perot, starting Thursday. The satellite programmer says it will carry the messages four times daily on a channel that is free to subscribers.
