January 12, 2001

NEW YORK (AP) _ Call it a sign of the changing times.

As the sun rose the morning after the creation of the nation’s newest _ and largest _ media company, workers had already changed the sign outside AOL Time Warner headquarters in Rockefeller Center.

The new 3-foot brass lettered ``AOL Time Warner″ sign was added to the building at 3 a.m. Friday, just hours after federal regulators approved the $106 billion merger.

``We wanted to do it as fast as we could because the new company is going to hit the ground running, and there is no better way to symbolize that,″ spokesman Ed Adler said.
