WOW! CEO Elder Joins C-SPAN Board

Fills slot held by Cochran

WideOpenWest CEO Teresa Elder is joining C-SPAN's board of directors, the 15-member body that oversees policy and finance, but not editorial decisions.

Elder, who became CEO of WOW! in December, succeeds the company's retired CEO Steven Cochran on the C-SPAN board. Cochran, in turn, had succeeded WOW! CEO Colleen Abdoulah.

C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb said of WideOpenWest's 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.
