CBS to Delay Fall Season Start

United Press International

CBS informed its affiliates today that the network has been forced by the writers' strike and the possibility of further industry labor troubles to postpone the start of its fall season from Sept. 5 until late October.

ABC has not set a date for its season start. NBC has fewer problems with the strike because the network will be broadcasting the Seoul summer Olymics from Sept. 17 to Oct. 2, and then has the World Series, which begins Oct. 15. If the World Series were to go seven games, NBC could not have its full schedule on the air anyway until Oct. 24.
