PROVO, UTAH -- Bruce L. Christensen, dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communications at Brigham Young University, will be leaving to join the senior management team of Bonneville International Corp. He has served as dean since 1993, prior to which he was president and CEO of the Public Broadcasting Service in Washington, D.C.

Christensen has been a board member of Bonneville International since 1996. Bonneville International Corp. President and CEO Bruce T. Reese said, "Bruce Christensen brings experience, ability and vision to this new assignment". Bonneville is making the transition into the digital world and Reese feels that Christensen is the man to lead them.

Despite his career change, Christensen said he still hopes to teach at BYU in the future. He first taught at the university in 1969.

"Because of his journalism background he has been able to educate the administration in the university, including President Bateman and other deans, about the process of journalism and the importance of the student newsroom lab," said Laurie Wilson, chair of the department of communications. He will be greatly missed at the university.

Christensen will begin his new duties on 1May 2000.
