MONROE, La. (AP) _ CenturyTel Inc. says it will change its name to CenturyLink after its proposed acquisition of Embarq Corp. closes.

Despite the name change, the Monroe, La.-based traditional telephone provider said today it will continue to trade under the symbol CTL.

CenturyTel announced last year it was buying Overland Park, Kan.-based Embarq, the nation's fourth-largest traditional telephone company. The acquisition has received approvals from all 33 states in which the two companies operate and is now awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission.
