Cooper Flies Coop from Adelphia

Adelphia Communications president and chief operating officer Ronald Cooper resigned for "good reason,” the MSO told AP.

The operator said Cooper's resignation was triggered by the conclusion of the sale of its cable properties to Comcast and Time Warner, which closed July 31, according to AP.

Cooper joined Adelphia in March 2003 to “implement new internal controls and procedures designed, among other things, to prevent a recurrence of the improper acts that allegedly occurred during the tenure of Rigas management,” AP quoted from the company’s 2003 annual report.

Before Adelphia, Cooper was COO of AT&T Broadband from October 2001-November 2002.
