Vice Chairman, Altice USA
Last year, as Cablevision’s EVP of government & public affairs, Rosenblum showed substantial chops in navigating the complex process to secure the necessary regulatory approvals to complete Altice’s purchase of Cablevision. And the executive, named Altice vice chair in August, continues to have industry consolidation on her mind. “With the consolidations, the industry is assuming the size and scale to continue to deliver the best services to knit our communities together over high-speed broadband and deliver the most robust and extensive programming options to our customers,” she says. Rosenblum’s ability to analyze complex situations will serve her well as she continues to resolve the regulatory and legal issues that may arise as Altice USA introduces its services and integrated operations with Cablevision and Suddenlink.

Enjoy life, be as engaged as possible in interesting activities, including sports, and explore and learn.
Which current programming best reflects the kind of women’s roles you like to see and why?
I generally watch news and public affairs commentary and in that context, appreciate the voice of women in the newsroom and as key political commentators, as they can at times bring a different perspective to the conversation.
What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?
Profound changes in the industry with Altice’s purchase of Cablevision and Suddenlink, and the integration of Charter/Time Warner Cable/Brighthouse. With the consolidations, the industry is assuming the size and scale to continue to deliver the best services to knit our communities together over high-speed broadband and deliver the most robust and extensive programming options to our customers.
