Dressler joins Crown Media board
EmptyCrown Media Holdings Inc., owner and operator of Hallmark Channel, said Wednesday that it has elected Fred Dressler, former executive vp programming at Time Warner Cable, to its board of directors.
Dressler, a 30-year cable veteran, retired from Time Warner Cable at the end of 2006; he had headed the programming department since 1987.
"Just as his knowledge, expertise and wise counsel have been the hallmarks of his own career, we expect that Crown Media will benefit as Fred brings these valuable attributes to his service on our board," Crown Media president and CEO Henry Schleiff said.
Dressler also has served as chairman of In Demand and president and CEO during the construction of Denver's Mile Hi Cablevision, among other positions.
