Is Cablevision In Trouble?

More defections at Cablevision as another top executive leaves the team.  The latest is Barry Frey, EVP of Advance Advertising, who is following David Kline, President of Media Sales, who left last month.  Will the revolving door ever stop?

Also announced the team of Rutledge and Bickham have reunited.  The former Cablevision COO is joining the former Cablevision CEO at Charter Communications. Both now have their same titles at their new cable firm.

Will the reunion at Charter shortly include Kline and Frey?  As the Cablevision senior team members depart, one has to wonder if it is time for Cablevision to finally put up the For Sale sign.  Should Time Warner Cable come in with an offer and try to complete its ownership of the NY DMA?  Or will the arrival of Rutledge and Bickham to Charter give them reason to want an pick up their old system to add to Charter's system list?

Somethings happening at Cablevision to lead to such a mass exodus.  Perhaps we should soon get a whiff of what the trouble is that  is causing all these departures.
