STATEMENT OF BERT C. ROBERTS JR., PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, MCI COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION

 STATEMENT OF BERT C. ROBERTS JR.,


PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, MCI COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION
 WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Bert C. Roberts Jr., president and chief executive officer of MCI Communications Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MCIC), issued the following statement:
 Today the business world lost one of its greatest innovators and leaders, William G. McGowan, chairman of MCI.
 It can be said of very few individuals that they created an industry. Yet that is the case with Bill McGowan, who founded competitive long distance in this country, and whose influence proved to be far-reaching, spreading to countries throughout the world.
 The story of Bill McGowan is a tale inspiring faith in a very basic American belief: that an individual can set out to do whatever he puts his mind to, regardless of the odds. That was certainly the case with Bill McGowan, who more than 20 years ago set out to restructure an industry -- and did.
 Bill McGowan would be the last person to take full credit for all the changes in the world that have resulted from the spread of modern telecommunications. But, perhaps more than any other single individual, he is responsible for the democratization of technology that has made it possible for all peoples to benefit.
 The loss of Bill McGowan will be felt by many. He was that rare individual who combined toughness of mind with great humanity. As we approach the 25th anniversary of the company that Bill McGowan founded, the celebration may seem a little empty without him. But we're all confident that his spirit will live on.
