BUSINESS
By New York Times News Service | November 12, 1993
After round-the-clock negotiations that finally ended yesterday afternoon, BellSouth Corp. agreed to invest $1.5 billion to back QVC Network's bid for Paramount Communications.But just as QVC made a new alliance, it lost an old one. The Federal Trade Commission, which has been investigating antitrust issues in QVC's proposed hostile takeover of Paramount, has insisted that QVC sever its ties with Liberty Media, its largest shareholder, if it wants a green light from the government.If it wins Paramount, QVC has promised to buy out Liberty's 15.6 percent stake for roughly $500 million, if Liberty cannot get a better price in the open market.

Gov. Melvin A. Steinberg was hoping to pull off last night with a $100-a-head reception at Martin's West.His gubernatorial campaign committee said the event raised $175,000 in ticket sales even before the first well-wisher walked through the door.

In the last two weeks prior to the election, County Executive-elect Charles I. Ecker did something he had never done before.He received more money than incumbent M. Elizabeth Bobo -- substantially more. According to financial reports filed Tuesday, Ecker raised $23,172 to Bobo's $6,435.Even if the $10,000 he lent himself is subtracted -- he lent his campaign $30,000 overall -- Ecker still raised more than twice what Bobo raised in the same period.To do so, he needed help from the Howard County Home Builders, which gave him $4,326, and the local Republican state Central Committee, which gave him $1,100.
