Greatrex has worked to take Cox into new markets through sponsorship deals that aren’t what you may initially connect with the company. Cox recently announced a national sponsorship arrangement with the Drone Racing League, using the partnership to further spread the word on its WiFi products. Albert has worked diligently to resolve a number of Cox’s retrans agreements, resolving a dispute last year that saw Hearst stations across five TV markets briefly go dark. He’s also launched new programming on Cox, including Hallmark Drama.
