WideOpenWest CEO Teresa Elder is joining C-SPAN's board of directors, the 15-member body that oversees policy and finances, but not editorial decisions.
Elder succeeds WOW!'s retired CEO Steven Cochran, who, in turn, had succeeded WOW! CEO Colleen Abdoulah.
C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb said of that WOW! line of board succession: "For many years through the energetic representation of WOW! CEO Colleen Abdoulah and then Steven Cochran we've benefited from their unique and valuable mid-size operator perspective and we look forward to receiving that same level of insight and expertise from Teresa."
C-SPAN is a suite of public service networks backed by the cable industry.
