Cablevision Systems said Monday that it has named Gregg
Seibert vice chairman. In addition to the new position, Siebert will continue

successfully addressed a multitude of challenges and opportunities,
consistently focusing on identifying ways to build value for our shareholders.
I look forward to Gregg's ongoing contributions in this important new role."
