Data Communications Magazine names Lee Keough editor in chief.

NEW YORK--Nov. 7, 1995--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lee Keough has been named editor in chief of Data Communications, the global enterprise networking magazine of The McGraw-Hill Companies. Her promotion is part of a staff restructuring that will allow the McGraw-Hill Companies to further expand its portfolio of products in the worldwide networking market.

Keough succeeds Joseph Braue, who has been promoted to editorial director. In his new capacity, Braue will be responsible for the creation of a new magazine for the public network market, slated to be launched in April 1996. Braue will continue to hold responsibility for ancillary products, as well as for creating conferences, seminars, and special sections for Data Comm and the new magazine.

Keough's promotion comes after three years as executive editor of Data Comm, in which she was responsible for day-to-day operations of the 110,000 circulation global magazine. In her new role, Keough will be in charge of editorial direction and planning for all three editions of the publication, Data Communications, Data Communications International, and Data Communications Asia-Pacific.

"Lee has been a crucial part of Data Comm's success and is the perfect person to further enhance our product," says publisher Kevin Harold. "Her mission will be to continue to expand our global coverage and maintain our award-winning editorial program."

In the past three years, Keough has successfully managed Data Comm's 23-person global editorial staff, overseen the creation of a new Asia-Pacific edition, supervised the magazine's new WorldWide Web home page, and been responsible for improvements that will culminate next February with a redesign.

"My goal is to provide an enhanced editorial package for Data Comm readers," says Keough. "We will continue to deliver the most in-depth networking product and technology coverage in the industry. Additionally, our forthcoming redesign and other changes will reflect the growing need to integrate business issues with technology coverage."

"Enterprise networks have become the heart of the corporation," Keough continues. "Data Comm is the only magazine that links technological details with the costs of building and running these networks. Our readers must have this information in order to advance corporate strategies."

The new Data Comm management team also includes Stephen Saunders, who has been named news editor. Saunders formerly served as senior editor in charge of internetworking coverage out of Data Comm's San Mateo, CA, office and is the recipient of a 1995 Jesse H. Neal award for investigative journalism. Saunders, who is relocating to New York, will now be responsible for assigning and editing staff-written editorial in North America.

Mary Jander has been named Associate Managing Editor/Special Projects and will be responsible for directing newsletter operations, the Global Enterprise Networking Directory, Data Comm's new products section, and other projects.

Data Communications was founded in 1972 as the first networking technology magazine. It is the only global magazine written for the enterprise network architect who plans, designs and, manages corporate computer networks.
