 PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Bell Atlantic Corporation

 No successor is being named at this time.
 "I have been planning for some years to retire at the age of 60, and I'm proceeding with my plans because I know the company is in excellent hands," said Campanella. "Bell Atlantic has made great strides in the past few years in preparing for the competitive '90s, and I am proud of our many accomplishments.
 "In the next few months, I will be working with our officers to put into place the new organization envisioned by our early retirement program and to prepare for an orderly transition."
 Bell Atlantic Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Raymond W. Smith said, "Anton Campanella has made great contributions to Bell Atlantic and New Jersey Bell, where he spent most of his career. He has been instrumental in bringing the promise of the Information Age to our customers through our advanced intelligent network and our many new products and services. We look forward to his able assistance in completing our new organization."
