 NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE ELECTS TIME INC. CEO
 CHAIRMAN OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES
 NEW YORK, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Reginald K. Brack Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of Time Inc., was elected chairman of the board of trustees of the National Urban League during the civil rights organization's annual conference in San Diego on July 29. He succeeds Robert C. Larson, vice chairman of the Taubman Company, Inc.
 In announcing Brack's appointment, John E. Jacob, president and chief executive officer of the National Urban League, said, "Reg Brack brings to the League the deep personal commitment that has been traditional among our chairmen. In addition, his broad experience and wisdom as a successful chief executive will be actively drawn upon by the League to help us fulfill our mission."
 Brack has spent his entire career in the publishing business and with Time Inc. since 1962. He has been associate publisher of Time, president of Time-Life Books, and chief executive officer of the Magazine Company since 1986. He has been chairman and chief executive officer of Time Inc. since 1990 when the magazine and book operations were combined as the publishing arm of Time Warner Inc., the world's leading media and entertainment company.
 Speaking in San Diego about his volunteer position as chairman, Brack said, "The National Urban League has a long and prestigious history in the civil rights arena and has been an important part of the movement that opened the doors for the development of a black American middle class. Its challenge today is to help achieve social and economic equality for all African-Americans through advocacy and program initiatives that focus on education and job opportunities. I am honored about being asked to help the League meet these challenges."
 Brack's other volunteer assignments include chairman of the board of the Magazine Publishers of America, vice chairman of the Advertising Council, a director of the Advertising Educational Foundation, and a director of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. He is also a member of the international advisory council of London-based Bass P.L.C.
