Malone, Keough join USA board

Move reflects close link to Diller

NEW YORK — Tele-Communications Inc. chairman John Malone and Allen & Co. chairman Donald Keough joined the board of USA Networks, USA said Thursday, reflecting the close ties of Malone and Allen to USA chairman Barry Diller.

TCI’s programming affiliate Liberty Media owns about 20% of USA and was Diller’s primary backer in taking over what was Home Shopping Network. HSN acquired USA Networks from Universal Studios earlier this year and subsequently changed its name. Allen & Co. is Diller’s longtime investment banker.
