Laurence A. Tisch, 80, a self-made billionaire investor who took control of CBS in the face of a hostile takeover but whose tenure was marked by accusations that he had tarnished the network's reputation, died of cancer Saturday in New York. Mr. Tisch was chief executive officer and chairman of the board of CBS Inc. from 1986 to 1995, a period when its nightly newscast fell to third place and it lost NFL football to the upstart Fox Network.

On a messy bed, in a stale apartment, on a side street in upper Manhattan, Richard Tisch lies there, hugely hungover. The phone rings -- some nut who won't take "wrong number" for an answer, who calls again, and again. This book must be, could only be, by Stephen Dixon. And true enough, the author of "Tisch" (Red Hen Press, 175 pages, $14.95) is the long-haul star of the Writing Seminars faculty at Johns Hopkins University. And the novelist and short story writer whose evocations of urban grunge have become a literary landmark.

There was rich irony in a scene two months ago that perhap best portrayed Baltimore's bid for an NFL expansion team.The scene unfolded in a Minneapolis hotel as NFL owners bolted en masse from meetings behind closed doors to lunch behind more closed doors. When Robert Tisch, the newly minted, 50 percent owner of the New York Giants, spied Herb Belgrad of the Maryland Stadium Authority in a corridor outside the meeting room, he strolled past and offered this piece of encouragement:"Herb, I'm in there working for you."

Efforts to return Baltimore to the National Football League have been thrown for a temporary but not irreparable loss. Prospective owner Bob Tisch was standing there, checkbook in hand, ready to buy a ticket at any price, to establish the city as a strong favorite to win an expansion franchise.Yesterday, that changed suddenly and dramatically. Instead of coming here, he bought himself half-ownership of a long-established team, one with rich tradition, now a Super Bowl champion, the New York Giants, and, as an additional feature, it is in his own hometown.

Los Angeles -- CBS is not for sale.That was the message repeated here yesterday from a testy Laurence Tisch, who said he would continue to run the network (( himself and make it the most profitable in broadcasting.For all his effort at trying to spike reports of a network in turmoil, however, the 71-year-old CBS president and chairman did not rule out the possibility of another merger, like the one that fell through last week between CBS and Barry Diller's QVC. And, worse for CBS employees and stockholders, Tisch gave no indication of having a plan to fix what ails the network.
