Robert Miron, Chairman of Bright House Networks, announced he will retire at the end of the year after leading the company for more than 35 years. He will continue as a board member of Discovery Communications.
Steven Miron, CEO of Bright House Networks, will assume responsibility for Bright House Networks. Nomi Bergman will continue to serve as its president.
Robert Miron said in a statement: "I have had a great career-more than 50 years in broadcasting and cable, with over 44 years in the cable industry…and I had a front row seat watching it grow from a 3-to-5 channel ma-and-pa reception service, to a full-fledged communications service that provides unlimited video choices, voice, and data to residential and businesses. One of my proudest accomplishments is choosing to make the initial investment in Discovery, and my long association with Discovery, helping it become the extraordinary success it is today."
Miron has been with Bright House Networks and its predecessor companies since their infancy, joining in 1966 and assuming the CEO role in 1974. Prior to that, he worked in various positions within Newhouse Broadcasting since starting his career in 1958 after his graduation from Syracuse University.
