“`Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, one of the historic sports venues in the nation, sold naming rights to  United Airlines in a lucrative deal that was announced by USC during its recent ground-breaking ceremony.  The agreement, which spans 16 years and is reportedly worth $69 million, will re-name the iconic stadium to the United Airlines Memorial Coliseum, beginning in 2019, and shall help fund the $270 million renovation that is already underway.

“`The Coliseum has been home to the USC Trojans football team since 1923, and will house the Los Angeles Rams for two more seasons, until their new stadium in Inglewood is ready in 2020. The Coliseum will also host its third Olympics in 2028.

“`Leading up to the name change, the Coliseum undergoes a major overhaul that will create luxury suites, and shrink overall capacity to 78,000.  This renovation will include extra aisles and handrails, installation of wider seating with more leg-room, updated stadium  Wi-Fi, and upgraded concession areas.

“`USC runs the Coliseum under a 98-year lease agreement with the city, county, and state.


“`Actor Robert Wagner has officially been labeled a person of interest in the tragic drowning death of Natalie Wood nearly four decades ago. The actress was married to Wagner from 1972, until her untimely passing in 1981.                                ROBERT WAGNER / NATALIE WOOD –>

“`The 43-year-old drowned off the coast of Catalina Island,  after she went missing from her family yacht. Captain Dennis Davern and actor Christopher Walken were also aboard on the fateful evening. Natalie’s death was ruled an accident. In 2011, this case was re-opened, and a death certificate was updated:  Drowning and undetermined factors.

“`A CBS special, called Natalie Wood:  Death in Dark Water, will air Saturday at 10p. It  features additional witnesses, evidence, and theories as to what happened the final night of her life. Los Angeles investigators are now calling it a suspicious accident.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
