Six newspaper execs elected to AP board p.

By: Debra Gersh THREE INCUMBENTS WERE among the six newspaper executives elected to the Associated Press board of directors at the news cooperative's annual meeting in Boston.
Those re-elected to the board were Ruth S. Holmberg of the Chattanooga (Tenn.) Times, with 17,479 bond votes; David J. Whichard II of the Greenville (N.C.) Daily Reflector, elected to represent papers from cities with fewer than 50,000 people, who received 17,292 bond votes; and Stephen Hamblett of the Providence (R.I.) Journal-Bulletin, who garnered 15,403 bond votes.
The candidate with the most bond votes was Burl Osborne of the Dallas Morning News, who received 19,662.
Others elected to the board were David Laventhol of the Los Angeles Times, with 15,129 bond votes, and Michael W. Johnston from Thomson Newspapers of Des Plaines, Iowa, and the Canton (Ohio) Repository, who received 11,422 votes.
Because only six board positions were available, only half the slate of candidates was successful.
Those who ran but received fewer votes were Judith W. Brown of the New Britain (Conn.) Herald, who received 8,314 bond votes; Louis A. Weil III of the Phoenix Gazette and Arizona Republic, 7,836 bond votes; R. David Threshie Jr. of the Orange County Register, Santa Ana, Calif., 6,184 bond votes; Susan Clark-Jackson of the Reno (Nev.) Gazette-Journal, 6,156 bond votes; Donald R. Bucknam of the Columbus (Ind.) Republic, who was running for a spot from an under- 50,000 population market, 4,561 bond votes; and George R. Sample from American Publishing Co. and the Corry (Pa.) Journal, who received 2,556 bond votes.
