Cox Eliminates Mike Pedelty's Job
Cox Cable in Roanoke continues to trim its workforce, this time eliminating the position held by Public Affairs Director Mike Pedelty, who was active on a number of community boards of directors, as well as Cox Channel 9.
Local programming, in which Pedelty was heavily involved (as was his wife until recent months), will continue, I'm told. Margaret-Hunter Wade, who worked with Pedelty, will reportedly continue in her job. Cox maintains a high community profile and is involved in a number of community efforts. Pedelty led much of that.
Less than a week ago, Cox announced it had eliminated 20 percent of its workforce in Roanoke by closing its call center.
