David L. Cohen, one of the top executives at Comcast and a close confidante of its CEO, Brian Roberts, will step down from his operational responsibilities at the company on Jan. 1, 2020. The company divulged the decision in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday morning.
Cohen will shift to a role as a counselor and adviser to Roberts and other executives at the firm.
