Biography

Biography Timeline

1951

In 1951, he started a television sales, installation and repair business in a converted grain elevator in his hometown. Concerned with the poor reception in his hometown, which impacted television sales due to the mountainous terrain, he installed antennas on the top of many of the surrounding mountains in order to provide reception to the people who lived in the valleys or lived on the hillsides not facing New York City. In 1956, he convinced seven local businessmen to invest in starting a local cable television system utilizing large "community antennas" on mountaintops which gathered the signal and then transferred it via cable to the individual homeowners. The company was named Liberty Video. He opened a store purely focused on television sales but soon realized that after an initial surge in sales, the recurring cash flows from cable subscribers was where the income was. In the early 1970s, he bought out his original partners and expanded into Pennsylvania and Massachusetts renaming the company Cablevision Industries. In the early 1980s, he installed the East Coast's first high-powered microwave delivery system, creating 100,000 house sub-clusters. Thereafter, he expanded into Florida, the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic States and was one of the first cable operators to deploy fiber optic cable. In 1996, he sold Cablevision Industries - then the 8th largest cable company and the largest privately owned cable company in the United States with 64 cable systems covering 1.3 million subscribers in 18 states - to Time Warner Cable for $2.7 billion,
