            In January 1995, Argyle II and Tak entered into an asset-

        the purchase of WGRZ is expected to occur in December 1995.  Prior
        to the closing, Argyle II will provide management services to Tak
        relating to WGRZ.  Eric Land, formerly vice president and general
        manager of WEYI-TV in Flint-Saginaw, Mich., will be Argyle II's
        employee on-site providing these services.

            ``As an accommodation to the seller to enable Tak to wrap up its
        bankruptcy, under which it has been operating since 1991, we agreed
        to postpone the closing of WGRZ until the end of the year,'' said
        Bob Marbut, Argyle II's chairman and chief executive officer.

        president and chief operating officer.


     According to Tak Communications, Tak already has paid virtually

     CORNING, N.Y.--June 7, 1995--Corning Incorporated
        (NYSE:GLW) indicated today that its second quarter results will
        include two special charges.  As a result of Dow
Corning Corporation's
previously announced filing on May 15 for protection
        under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, Corning said
        it will record a special charge of $365.5 million, or $1.62 per
        share, to fully reserve its investment in Dow Corning.  Beginning in
        the second quarter, Corning will also discontinue recognition of
        equity earnings from Dow Corning.   

            Second quarter results will also include a restructuring charge
        of approximately $36 million after tax, or $0.16 per share.  As
        previously indicated, the charge reflects the costs of additional
        workforce reductions and facility consolidations associated with
        Corning's ongoing reengineering programs.   


     In the second quarter of 1994, Corning reported net income of
        $111.4 million, or $0.54 per share, which included $22.6 million, or
