AT & T Names Three As Liberty Directors


Washington-AT & T Corp. named three people to serve as directors of Liberty Media Group last Thursday, complying with a deadline in the Federal Communications Commission's June 5 approval of AT & T's merger with MediaOne Group Inc.

The FCC told AT & T to replace three Liberty directors with individuals who are not AT & T directors, officers or employees.

AT & T said it would name: Harold R. Handler, 64, a lawyer with Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett; Frank J. Macchiarola, 58, president of St. Francis College; and Michael T. Ricks, 40, a retired finance executive with MediaOne. The FCC must approve the selections.
