Sports Agent Sues ‘Chicago Tribune’ For Libel

By: Mark Fitzgerald

Stephen Zucker, probably best known as Deion Sanders’ sports agent, sued the Chicago Tribune and writer Ellen Warren last week, claiming he was libeled in an “Inc.” gossip column item that said he was turned away three times from the funeral of Chicago TV sportscaster Tim Weigel, a former client. The Tribune said it stands by the story.

In an unrelated development, the newspaper discontinued the “Inc.” column on Friday.
