SEPT. 15—President Clinton on Wednesday announced he would nominate Edward F. Meagher as assistant secretary for information technology for the Veterans Affairs Department.

Meagher, of Great Falls, Va., is now president and chief technology officer of Entertainment News Service. He will replace Robert P. Bubniak, who became acting CIO on June 1 following the departure of Harold F. Gracey Jr.

Gracey left his 30-year career in government to become vice president for government affairs at FedBid.com of Germantown, Md.

Meagher brings nearly 20 years of IT experience to the VA CIO position. He attended the University of Dayton and served in the Air Force, the White House said.
