EYE ON CABLEVISION

News

After only one year, Cablevision decided to close down Newsday’s digital-only Westchester operation: The company reportedly declined to disclose how many employees were laid off.

Now, our nation's highest court has just declined a Cablevision Systems request seeking a stay of National Labor Relations Board proceedings in which the company is involved.

Cablevision wanted a stay in light of the court's decision to hear a case that challenges three of President Barack Obama's appointments to the board, which has cast into doubt whether it had a quorum to conduct business. Cablevision's stay application was denied without comment by Chief Justice John Roberts.

Meanwhile, Time Warner Cable is apparently interested in Cablevision concerning a potential merger. Reportedly Time Warner Cable would rather expand through additional acquisitions than be acquired by Charter Communications.
