I had a feeling that he was going to another company. I wonder what they did to make him leave cvc ? That guy knows what he is doing. Damn man, why do these guys always find a way to make bad decisions.
Charter operates in some of the states as bresnan communications too. Can anyone say payback.
Not a problem for CV. They don't compete against each other.
This could also give CV the option to become a national provider very easily. Send a former employee to someone else as the new CEO work for a little bit and then merge the former company- CV and the new company- Charter and become national.
It would make sense. Dolan's could take CV private and then buy up Charter without a problem; as far as no shareholders to please after that. Could take a bit of time to get everything worked out but would be worth their time and money. The Dolan's has already played the card showing they want to be a national provider and this is just another step going that way. If they don't take Charter fully. I could see CV grabbing up market by market over the next year or so.
