These appointments are effective immediately, the company says, and Mr. Sweeney and Ms. Dolan will report to Cablevision Chief Executive Officer James L. Dolan, who will no longer serve as president.

The New York Post reported last year that James and Kristin Dolan had entered into a trial separation (confirmed to the Post by James Dolan), but apparently they are still married at this time. Cablevision declined to comment on their personal relationship.
The Dolan family also controls Madison Square Company along with the Knicks and Rangers.
There has been some limited speculation that Cablevision could factor into the consolidation efforts taking place in the industry.
