What's the Buzz?

        David Siebenburgen, the former president of Comair Inc. and now president of the Delta Connection network, could soon replace Delta Air Lines' Dave Anderson on the elite Cincinnati Business Committee.

        Mr. Anderson's early retirement as Delta's top official here will take effect next week, and he'll start June 5 as a senior director of customer satisfaction at Children's Hospital Medical Center.

        And since Delta's acquisition of Comair last year, Mr. Siebenburgen's duties have only increased. He now is responsible for not only those flights operated by Comair, but other regional carriers that feed into the Delta flight network.

        While the CBC has not formally announced any new members, several business officials familiar with the situation said Mr. Siebenburgen was an obvious choice.

        CBC officials could not be reached for comment.

        The CBC, which includes the heads of 25 of the region's most influential companies, is heavily involved in downtown development and helping the Cincinnati Public Schools.

        David Mueller, who was chairman and CEO of Comair's holding company until it was acquired by Delta last year, resigned from the CBC after the Delta acquisition was completed.
