 DIRECTOR OF MEDIA RELATIONS
 BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Merlis has been named senior vice president/director of media relations for Warner Bros. Records, it was announced by Mo Ostin, board chairman of the company.

 Commenting on the appointment, Ostin remarked, "Bob Merlis is the most respected spokesman and media strategist in the industry. In a very real way, he is Warner Bros. Records to the members of the press community. His contribution to this company and the artists on our roster has been extraordinary."
 Stated Merlis upon his new appointment, "It almost goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, that I'm thrilled to be the recipient of this vote of continued confidence from the best people in the industry. It is, however, an honor I must share with our entire publicity department -- both here and in New York. There is simply no better staff in the business and I appreciate their extraordinary efforts as does the rest of the company and our roster of artists."
 Merlis began his music industry career in 1969 at Record World magazine where he served as assistant editor. In 1971 he joined Warner Bros. Records in New York as a press representative. Two years later he moved to Bearsville Records, then distributed by Warner Bros., assuming the post of operations manager. After a stint at RCA Records' A&R Department, Merlis rejoined Warner Bros. as senior press representative, based in New York. He was named director of publicity in 1975 and relocated to the west coast. In 1982 he was promoted to vice president/director of publicity, a post he held until this appointment which is effective immediately.
