 BOLLES NAMED EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF NETWORK COMPUTING:
 STROM STAYS ON AS EDITOR EMERITUS
 MANHASSET, N.Y., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Computing magazine today announced the promotion of Gary A. Bolles to the position of editor-in-chief, effective Jan. 1, 1993.
 Bolles has been with the publication since its inception in October 1990, first as a contributing editor, then as senior editor and most recently as reviews editor.
 Bolles will take over the editor-in-chief position from David Strom, who will remain with the publication in the new position of editor emeritus.
 Bolles will be fully responsible for all editorial operations of the magazine, including strategy, direction and production. He will continue to be based at Network Computing's lab facility on the campus at UCLA.
 Strom will continue to be involved in strategic direction for Network Computing, will continue to write his column and other articles, and will continue to represent the publication at various industry events.
 Strom's reduced role at Network Computing will also enable him to devote time and resources to a new consulting business he is establishing.
 Both Bolles and Strom will report directly to publisher Al Perlman.
 "These are very exciting changes for Network Computing," Perlman said. "The publication has grown beyond any of our expectations. David has been a strong leader through the start-up phase of the magazine. Now that we are more established, he wanted to spend less time on the management issues involved in running a large magazine. On the other hand, we are extremely fortunate to have an individual of Gary's experience and ability to step in and take over the helm of the magazine."
 Bolles' experience in the network computing industry began in the late 1970s at TeleVideo Systems, Inc. At TeleVideo, Bolles wrote one of the industry's first NetWare training courses.
 After leaving TeleVideo, Bolles worked at Network Products Corporation. As vice president of marketing, he created the company's third-party developer program. He previously had been responsible for training, technical support and documentation.
 Before joining Network Computing, Bolles also served as a consultant on networking issues for a variety of end users and vendors.
 "Networking Computing has quickly risen to a premier role in the networking computing field," Bolles said. "It is my intention to continue the exceptional work that David has begun."
 Strom has been editor-in-chief of Network Computing since its inception and has been a key individual in shaping the direction of the publication throughout the past two years.
 Strom developed the concept of "real world laboratories" that have helped to distinguished Network Computing's editorial coverage versus all other lab-based publications.
 "I'm very proud of what we've been able to accomplish at Network Computing over the past two-plus years," Strom said. "We've built a series of seven 'real-world' testing laboratories and defined a new level of editorial excellence in how to explain and evaluate complex networked products for our readers.
 "We've managed to hire a superlative staff in terms of analysis, editing, production and design. Not to mention that it's been fun to always be on the leading edge of a fast-growing industry."
 Network Computing has been the fastest growing publication in the computer industry throughout all of 1992, according to the Computer Publishing & Advertising Report.
 According to CPAR, Network Computing has grown by 120.6 percent in advertising pages through the first three quarters of 1992, by far the highest growth rate of any publication.
 Network Computing is a monthly magazine with a controlled circulation of 175,000 readers all responsible for purchasing computing products used in a network environment. It is the only publication specifically dedicated to the $250 billion network computing segment of the computer market.
 Founded in October 1990 Network Computing is one of 17 newspapers and magazines from CMP Publications, a leading business-to-business publisher specializing in computer, electronics, travel and health industries.
