Dorman Improves Position at AT&T

Reports are that AT&T Corp. president David Dorman took one step closer
to replacing chairman C. Michael Armstrong Thursday when he was named to the
company's board of directors, along with chief financial officer Chuck
Noski.

A successor for Armstrong will be needed by the end of this year if AT&T
Broadband's merger with Comcast Corp. is approved. Armstrong is pegged to become
CEO of the merged cable companies.

Dorman gained the inside track to taking over the remainder of AT&T given
statements from Noski that he is not interested in the job.

The $72 billion AT&T-Comcast merger, announced in December, would create
the nation's largest cable operator, with a combined 22 million subscribers. But
it still must gain approval from federal regulators -- a process that will take
about one year to complete.
