DELTA WILL START SERVICE TO PENSACOLA ON MONDAY

Another new in-Florida flight is starting at Jacksonville International Airport, as Delta Air Lines rolls out nonstop service to Pensacola beginning Monday.

The 7 a.m. flight will leave Jacksonville every day except Sunday, arriving at Pensacola Regional Airport one hour and 17 minutes later.

Earlier this month, Continental Connection, operated by Fort Lauderdale-based Gulfstream International Airlines, announced it was beginning daily air service from JIA to West Palm Beach Airport.

ANHEUSER-BUSCH READY TO LAUNCH BUD.TV

Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. is going into the online entertainment business.

The nation's biggest brewer plans to launch a Web site in February that will show original programming, including extended shows featuring characters from previous television ads.

The site - called "Bud.TV" - is aimed at consumers between the ages of 21 and 27 who routinely visit sites like MySpace.com and YouTube, said Tony Ponturo, Anheuser-Busch's vice president of global media and marketing.

"The main reason that we're doing this is that we need to connect to these new beer consumers," Ponturo said.

The Web site will feature sports shows, standup comedy and reality shows that are set in bars and restaurants, said Jim Schumacker, who will oversee Bud.TV.

Anheuser-Busch announced partnerships with some big-name stars who plan to contribute shows, including comedian Vince Vaughn. The Web site also will receive content from actor Kevin Spacey's TriggerStreet.com project and actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's "Project Greenlight" filmmaking contest.
