TERRY BRUCE TO HEAD AMERITECH'S D.C. OFFICE

 WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Former U. S. Rep. Terry L. Bruce (D-Ill.) has accepted the position of vice president of federal relations for Ameritech, effective Feb. 1. He succeeds John J. Connarn, who has announced his retirement after a 38-year career.
 Bruce will be in charge of Ameritech's Washington office and will be responsible for Ameritech's relationships with Congress, the FCC and other agencies of the federal government.
 "John Connarn has provided valuable leadership and direction to Ameritech in representing our interests in Washington," said William L. Weiss, Ameritech chairman and chief executive officer. "His clear thinking in helping pursue Ameritech's agenda has been important to our efforts in the nation's capital. John is recognized as a leading professional in his field and we as a corporation have benefited from his talents.
 "Terry Bruce will be an important part of the Ameritech team. His first-hand knowledge of the workings of the federal government will be a significant asset," said Weiss.
 Bruce represented Illinois' 19th district. His congressional term expired in January 1993.
 An Illinois native, Bruce, 48, was a four-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives. He was a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and its subcommittees on Commerce; Consumer Protection and Competitiveness; Energy and Power; and Health and the Environment. He also was a member of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, and its Energy and Science subcommittees.
 Bruce received a bachelor's degree and a law degree from the University of Illinois. He previously served more than 14 years in the Illinois State Senate.
 Connarn, 63, opened Ameritech's Washington office and has headed it since 1983. He began his career with Michigan Bell in 1954 and held a succession of management positions in directory, sales and public relations for Michigan Bell and AT&T. He joined Ameritech in 1983 as vice president-federal relations.
 A native of Detroit, Connarn received a bachelor's degree in marketing from the University of Detroit in 1952. He served in the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954.
 Ameritech is the parent of the Bell companies serving Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, and other domestic and international companies providing cellular communications, directory publishing, systems integration, lease financing and audiotex services. Ameritech's 1991 revenues were $10.8 billion.
