 WOODBURY, N.Y., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- James A. Kofalt, president of Cablevision Systems Corporation (CVC), announced today the appointments of James L. Dolan as chief executive officer of Cablevision's programming subsidiary, Rainbow Programming Holdings, Inc., and the promotion of Sharon L. Patrick to president and chief operating officer.
 In making the announcement, Kofalt said, "These moves will allow Rainbow to operate as an independent company with its own senks in the nineties." Effective Oct. 12, Rainbow will report directly to the Office of the Chairman of Cablevision.
 As part of their responsibilities, Dolan and Patrick will be members of a team that will evaluate the feasibility of a transaction that could result in Rainbow becoming an independent public company.

(CNI), the nation's largest cable television advertising representative. Dolan also served as executive-in-charge of the Olympics Triplecast. He is a graduate of the State University of New York at New Paltz.
 Patrick has been president of Rainbow since 1990, and presently serves on the board of directors of Cablevision Systems Corporation. She was formerly a partner of McKinsey and Company, the international management consultants, in charge of the firm's worldwide media and entertainment practice. Patrick is a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Business School.
