A new sports talk show is coming to KMPC on June 3 with Scott St. James as the host. The station dropped "Sportsline" with Paul Olden after last baseball season. "The Scott St. James Show" will be broadcast from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays when there is no Angel game, with, of course, a half-hour out for Jim Healy at 5:30. On nights the Angels are home or playing a West Coast game, St. James will go off the air at 7. He will be preempted when there are East Coast games.

What: "On the Record With Bob Costas" Where: HBO, tonight, 11 Sports-news magazine shows are nothing new. ESPN's "Outside the Lines" has been around for more than 10 years.
