Cox Comm svp, content acquisition Bob Wilson will retire at year-end after 34 years at the MSO. Wilson joined Cox in '79 as a business manager and one of 45 employees at its Atlanta hq, but he spent the last 20 years negotiating carriage agreements for cable and broadcast networks. Evp/CFO Mark Bowser called Wilson “a tough, but fair, negotiator who has advocated for the business and Cox customers” and credited him for Cox's current “competitive line-up” and “great value” to customers. “Change has been a constant throughout my career, driven by innovative technology and an increasing amount of available content,” said Wilson. “I believe cable has a great product and a bright future and I've fought to protect the value of it for our customers. Despite some tough negotiations, the thing I will miss most is the relationships with programmers, peers, partners and colleagues.”
