MONROE - The next CEO for Louisiana's largest public company says he plans to keep living in Colorado, but CenturyLink's headquarters will remain in Louisiana.
  
Jeff Storey is president and CEO of Level 3 Communications Inc., which is based in Broomfield, Colorado, and which CenturyLink Inc. is buying.
  
Under the planned deal, he will take charge of Monroe-based CenturyLink on Jan. 1, 2019.
