Englewood, Colo. -- Rob Stoddard, who has been MediaOne
Group Inc.'s vice president of corporate communications, has become senior vice
president of public relations at AT&T Broadband & Internet Services.
Stoddard -- who said that so far, the announcement has only
been made internally -- will now oversee media relations, employee communications and
constituency relations for the combined MSO operations.
A past Cable Television Public Affairs Association
president, Stoddard was Boston-based corporate-communications director at Continental
Cablevision Inc. before it became MediaOne.
He said he expected AT&T Broadband's merger with
MediaOne to become final sometime within the next few months.
In addition, Steve Lang, executive director of financial
and corporate communications at MediaOne, is shifting to AT&T Broadband as vice
president of external communications.
Yet another MediaOne PR staffer, Tracy Hollingsworth, had
gone over to AT&T Broadband in August as media-relations manager.
