One Word that Best Describes Me: Joyful

 

More than a year after it was announced that Charter was in talks to acquire Bright House—a move that would effectively create the second-largest cable operator in the country—Miron and Bergman remain busy adding services. Among them is the Bright House TV app, which is free to video subscribers. Just another way Miron and Bergman are ensuring the company’s 2.5 million customers remain happy throughout the pending merger.

My first job: Ski instructor

Favorite charity I work with: Adaptive Spirit!

What excites me most about DOCSIS 3.1?

DOCSIS 3.1 is such a powerful, high-capacity new standard for our industry, and I am thrilled to see its deployments beginning this year. DOCSIS 3.1 embraces important efficiency improvements and reduces the cost per bit delivered, yet it is also backwards compatible (and quite flexible and adaptive) with (to) preceding investments and exiting services.

Best way to spend a Saturday night: Sharing a glass of wine with my husband and just catching up.

New favorite binge: “Doc Martin” (PBS)

Favorite Podcast: Re/code De/code. I love listening to this podcast on my early morning runs. Earlier today, I listened to Peter Kafka’s interview with the two founders of The Skimm. I always find I learn a great deal from Peter, Kara Swisher, Lauren Goode and Walt Mossberg. The podcast is consistently well done.

My personal theme song is: “Love Generation” is my latest favorite

The technology that will most benefit cable over the next year is: Wireless.

Favorite vacation spot: It is a close decision—between Utah and Maine!

My typical breakfast is: Chobani yogurt with berries, Grape-nuts, slivered almonds and a little bee pollen.

My Starbucks order: Cool lime refresher!
