Multiple reports today say Cablevision Operation Officer Tom Rutledge is stepping down from his post. He’ll leave the Bethpage, New York-based company, effective December 19, according to a regulatory filing. No reason was given for Rutledge’s departure.
Rutledge, 58, joined Cablevision in 2002, helping reshape the regional cable giant since becoming COO in 2004.
According to a Cablevision statement, the company is seeking a successor to oversee its cable operations.
Under Rutledge’s watch, Cablevision focused its attention on the cable entity, after it spun off Madison Square Garden Company and AMC Networks Inc. in the last two years.
