On February 3, 2003 Broadwing Inc. entered into amended employment agreements
with its Chief Executive Officer, Kevin W. Mooney, its Chief Financial Officer,
Thomas L. Schilling, its Chief Human Resources Officer, General Counsel and
Corporate Secretary, Jeffrey C. Smith and its Senior Vice President of Corporate
Development, Michael W. Callaghan. The contract amendments provide incentives
for the employees to sell the broadband business of Broadwing Communications
Inc. and to amend the Company's credit facility, as well as provide for their
retention through the period of the Company's restructuring. Amendments to the
employment agreements are attached as Exhibit 99(i).

To provide a clear focus on the restructuring efforts and an equal attention to
ongoing operations, with Mr. Mooney's consent, the Chief Operating Officer of
Broadwing Inc., Jack Cassidy, will report directly to the Board of Directors
effective February 3, 2003.


        Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
